This seems to be the best site for nursing info. It is terrific!
I am currently trying to enroll in an LPN program in the West Central FL location. There just doesn't seem to be openings until August 2003, and 2004. Meanwhile I am taking pre-reqs for RN in the meantime. I am also studying to take NET for the Aug. 2003. If I pass, I still don't even know if I will be eligible to get in depending on waiting list. This is very frustrating that you have to wait 1-2 years just to get in a nursing program. No wonder there is such a shortage!
I did find one school offering classes starting this Nov. across the bay. When I called for info, I was told that cost of tuition is $11,400 for a 12-mo program. Can this be correct? How can one program offer training for 2,300 (14 mos.) and another for $11,400. I am not eligible for govt. assistance and cannot justify applying for a loan at that cost.
Please someone give me some advice on what to do??
