Hello to all!
Thanks in advance for any advice or input offered.
Here's 2 programs i'm looking into, but I can't decide and time is running out. Both start new month and i've already paid my registration fee to one of them.
Program #1: Ruby's Academy for Health Occupation(10min from my home), Fl board approved & OES accredited, old school/new lpn program, 12mth,m-th/5-10pm,14k(no financial assistance avail.), no definate days for clinical (start a few wk into program), they've said clinicals will be evenings and weekends.
My draw back to this program is price, and clinical hours could possibly be on the weekends. This would mean I would be away from my home, kids, and hubby possibly 7 days a week. I will be working in the day hours M-F. Yes, I have taken into account the severity of the program and the time it will involve. But, if I dont have to be away on the weekends this would give me 2 days to do the neccessary.
Program #2: Vintex Institute(25min away from home), Fl board approved, old school name/new location & program at this location, 14mth, m-th/5:30-10:30 & fri. when clinicals start, 8k(no financial assistance avail.), wed & thur clinical(6mth into program).
My draw back to this program.........ummm only the distance. I found one student that did complete the program, passed the nclex, and have a job; which is good.
Even though i've already paid my reg. fee for program# 1, i'm really leaning towards #2. It would allow me the time on the weekends, money in my pocket, and clinicals don't start so early into the program.
If you have anything to offer that would help me see this differently or something you're viewing about the scenario that I may not be considering, please point it out.
Thanks again in advance!
