    I'm in Connecticut. I am currently enrolled in the PNEP at a vocational school. The tuition was covered by grants from FASFA (roughly $5000 total). The program is 18 months long. It really does depend on state and whether or not you choose to go to a private school. If you choose private, your probably going to pay more for the same course. As far as I know, there are no pre-reqs. to get in. You just have to pass the entrance exam and go to through the interview process.

    I went to LPN school in CT. 22months. Very horrific. They all have criteria for entrance examinations and then we had 50 in the class & only graduated 14 because they couldn't keep the 75% passing avarge. Oh. I weent to pvt. school and it was &25,000 at the time. No financial aid. Hope this helps.
