Hi everyone! I have recently considered the LPN program because I work in a theraputic school for disabled children. I see a few people have posted that they have to take pre-reqs....are those the 60 credit general ed courses? The LPN program at my comm. college is about 7 or 8 courses but they are 1,500 contact hours so I'm guessing that's about an 12-18 month program. I already have a year of gen ed courses, but they have nothing to do with nursing. So do you have to get your associates before you can apply for the LPN?
I really do not know where to start because I can't even get financial aid. How long did it take for you to find out if you were accepted into the program and what kind of things did they ask you? I'm sorry I'm asking so many questions but I wanted to ask people that have already gone through this so that I don't make any mistakes! Thanks so much.
