    ]I am currently doing the online LVN-RN program at Lamar State. I started on April 4th and I am on my second nursing class right now (classes are 5 weeks with 1 week off in between).

    It is a very time-consuming program if you also have to work full time while doing it. I work a rotating schedule (7 12-hour shifts in 14 days) and this was the only program, where I was able to do all my work online and still keep my full time job.
    The hospital I work at has an "academic partnership" with Lamar State so I will be able to do my clinicals at my hospital with a preceptor or I might have to go to our "mother" hospital.

    Congratulations to you sonja 77 for gettin in the program. I am so glad that there is you who is ahead of the program. From now and then I might be needing your input about the module that you had just finished which I guess is the computers ITC 1371 INTRODUCTION TO COMPUTERS RIGHT? So I guess you are now in Pathophysiollogy Module RNSG 1511 right? How did you handle it? I am sure you are smart enough to get into the program. I am glad t for you. Good luck to your next module. Keep in touch and best regards. I am going to give you my email if you don't mind don't hesitate to send me some insight for anything with regards to the modules.AManio1958@gmail.com..Take Care....

    I graduated from Lamar State College-PA May 20, 2011.

    It is very fast paced! I am more than positive that 99% of my class worked full time while in school. I have tried Excelsior- that did not work out for me. With Lamar, you are on your own but you do need to put in the effort. There are discussions, deadlines, assignments, and exams. You will always have an academic coach that you can reach out. Mine were GREAT!!! The program is affordable (which was #1 on my want list).

    If anyone is looking to start class soon email me sanchezyf@lamarpa.edu I can help answer any questions.

    Good luck to all

    I finished Pathophysiology last week and will start Intro to Professional Nursing and the Virtual Clinical next week. It looks like they restructured the program for the class starting in September. I did not take Intro to Computers during the nursing program. I did take Microcomputers as part of my prereqs. When I started the program was/is only 13 months and the one in September will be 15 months. It looks like they just moved the computer class from the prereqs into the nursing program.
    So far the classes are doable, not too difficult, just very time-consuming.

    I just started this Program on June 27th. I was suppose to start in April but the admissions office didn't forward my transcripts to the nursing office in time, so I had to wait til June. So I would recommend if anyone is applying, apply at least 2 weeks in advance because your transcripts go through the admissions first, then the nursing office.
    So far the program seems okay, my only disappointment is I have to take this computer class they have added to the program and I already took it because it was apart of the pre-req before. Added months and cost, so disappointing. But that's alright, I am determined to get through it.

    Anyone in the program already, can you tell me if you HAVE to have all the books listed? Which ones can I possibly go without?
    Thanks!

    I didn't buy the computer book because it's really not a class I care about. But I believe that's all the books needed on the website. They have pdf files of the chapters as well on the site too so I think I will be okay with no book for this computer class. Not sure about the rest.

    Hi guys! I'm new to this so bare with me... For those that will start in September for the bridge program, did any of you have more than a yr. Experience working as an lvn? Because I heard that they recently add that on to their admission requirements and unfortunately I'm a new graduate nurse that would like to further in my education and was hoping to get into their program soon.
