I tried my shot at applying for the RN program a TCC but was rejected. I'm now looking into Concorde in Arlington. My goal is to eventually become a RN and I'm trying to decide whether I should take the LVN program or the Surgical Tech program. I DO know that there are schools out there that have the "bridge" for LVN-RN, so I'm leaning more towards LVN. Is it possible to do about the same with a Surgical Tech diploma? I'm also VERY nervous and concerned about finding a job immediately after graduation. I have two boys (1 and 3) and I want to make sure I'm very certain I can support my family whilst paying off school. It's scary reading forums/threads that contain problems finding a job YEARS after schooling. Where can I get experience to apply for jobs that require it? What kind of jobs can I find with a LVN/Surgical Tech diploma? It gets frustrating getting the search engine "run around". Please help! Any information will do.

- Feb 20, '12 by patty89Have you checked around your area to see what jobs are being offered? Are there more postings for LPN jobs or for surgical tech?
I was recenly accepted into the LPN program at Concorde, Portland OR. I am doing the LPN program in 13 months and then doing a bridge program for my RN. I feel that having my LPN before an RN program will greatly help me out. Best of luck to you!
- May 7, '12 by justcupI went to Concorde Arlington for LVN in 2009. I've never heard of a surgical tech -rn program. I'm starting an lvn-rn program at the end of this month. I moved to California after graduation and transferred my license over from TX. I haven't heard of any of my classmates having trouble finding work in tx though. CareNow was like begging any of us to work for them before we even passed nclex.
