Any one in this program? I am looking it to it as it is the cheapest option I have found... Seems a lot like excelsior with the exception on clinicals (how do they do them?)????... Read More

    Thanks for the info. I applied to three schools in my area. Two of them I didn't get in and the other I got alternate. Most of my college hours are online, so I have no problems with assisgnments and my job is encouraging the online program because they don't have to work around school hours. I willadmitt a little scared because I don't know to expect. Looks like I might start in June if not then, it will be September, GOOD Luck to you

    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.
