    My program is in Massachusetts. It started on September 4--ended June 25th (graduation day). Thank goodness it's over! NCLEX passing rate was 94%.

    Ours is 5-6 quarters long depending on if you do core the first quarter with allied health classes or if you do core then allied health classes. There are obviously 4 quarters per year, so ours is 15-18 months long. There are not any shorter ones around here that I know of.

    ETA: That is the total time from start to finish, not counting breaks and stuff. Each quarter is 10 weeks, so it is 50-60 weeks of actual course work. Also, we do 4 quarters of clinic work, so 40 weeks of that.

    thats great that they have a program thats the same length as the day program! In my school you can either go M-F 8-2:10 or nights and weekends. The fulltime day program like i said is just under 10 months and the part time night program is 2 years. I think its great to have this because some people do still have to work there 9-5 and im thankful i am not in there shoes, but otherwise theyd have to wait 2 years to graduate. Just letting you know, you are lucky!!!!(scheduling wise)

    Those of you in the 11 month and under programs, does that include your core classes and other non-nursing classes? I have heard that some schools require those to be completed before starting the program and that would significantly shorten the amount of time the rest of the program takes.

    Ours is about eleven months. We don't have pre-req classes or anything. It's the minimum 1500 hours required by the PA Board.

    Ditto, but I can see it being possible with more class time added in. There are no corners to cut, though, making that very difficult. I would NEVER be in a program that was less than 10-12 months. My LVN program began in August and ends in July. I already attend class M, T & F 2:30 p.m. - 9:30 p.m., clinicals W & TR 2:30 p.m. - 10:30 p.m. Adding more to that workload would overload me. :-)
