LVN Schools in Southern California-which one?

  1. 0
    I live in san Bernardino county in southern california. I am trying to decide between a few schools for LVN. I was wondering if anyone has heard of Hacienda Adult school in La Puente. And what you think of it. Another one I'm considering is American career College. Any information on these schools, or any other suggestions on which school to go to would be appreciated. Thanks

    Attend the school with the cheapest tuition, because the end result of all of these programs will be exactly the same: an LVN license.

    Ok, that makes since, but I have heard that some schools don't prepare the students as well as others. That the pass rate on the test to get your license might not be as good some schools. IDK, but I am thinking of going to an adult school. It is a one year program.

    Quality of education for a reasonable cost is usually the case when choosing an adult ed nursing program over a private program. Without knowing particulars of any programs, best bet would be the adult program, then a community college program, then a private school if the others are not available. Private schools tend to have the poorest programs for a high cost, but you do graduate, and can sit for the boards. Getting the license is what counts. You will be doing a lot of learning on the job anyway, so choose the school that is best for you and that you can afford.

    I attend Hacienda La Puente. Privately e-mail me if you'd like and we can "talk" a bit...still in school and don't have much extra time. I will say the program is indeed very intense...you're one step ahead if you already have med. experience (i.e., cna, med. asst, etc.).

    Now back to studying.... ;-D

    Wow, Hacienda adult school is where I was just thinking of going. I looked up their pass rate, and it was higher than most of all the other local schools. 91% pass rate. How do i find your email address?

    I got your private message vintagestudent, but I can't send you a private message back. It said I'm not allowed to. I not sure what to do so I can send private messages. Anyway, you need to study now. But, I do have a few questions. Maybe tommorow we can talk

    I privately emailed you via this site. Click on "MyAccount" at the top, next to your user name on left and then click on "Private Messages."

    How about the weekend? Weekdays are rough, honestly. We'll talk soon, okay?

    Take care.

    P.S. Be ready to have no life other than nursing school...no joke, the 11-month program is intense, but I'm learning so much! I eat & breathe nursing right now. Not complaining, just telling it the way it is.

    I clicked on my account, then private messages. Then it said that I'm currently not allowed to send private messages. Do I have to pay money to be able to send private messages? Did you pay? I guess I can do that.

    You need to have accrued at least 15 posts before you will be allowed to send private messages.
