I have been finding that 11 months is the norm for the LPN programs. Does anyone know of any accelerated LPN programs that are less than 11 months?... Read More

    mine says its a 12mo program, but it starts mid august, graduation is mid june, and with holiday time, it's 9mo. total.
    It's fully accredited and the local ADN programs use my school for it's 1+1 program. We have class from 7:40-2:15 and starting next month will have two to three 8hr clinicals per week.
    We have 3-4 exams per week, plus quizzes, modules, and group work to turn in. It's intense. I feel like every day is totally focused on school. I just finished up a test this morning, along with a quiz and a handout, and tomorrow I have another exam and module due, and the same on Thurs.

    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.

    Mine is 11.5 months and we have no pre reqs. Once you pass the entrance exam, you are in. Board of Education of NYC has one from Sept.- June.

    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.
