Lamar State College LVN to RN - page 20

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

    jsplemons,
    I am 1busymaniam@excite.com. I commented on this on my cohort discussion board and nobody is responding. None of the locals have posted a newspaper clipping or email alert or internal memo from Lamar. I started Sept 17 and yes we get to finish. I suspect the college has to hold until our pass rate improves on the Nclex or maybe risk losing the program for a couple of years. Angelo State has not accepted applications for over a year now in their bridge program and it was related to the pass rate. Maybe there will be an announcement when we resume January classes?
    Good luck......... Russell Roach

    That's what I was thinking. I looked on the BON site and it says they have full with warning. I hate to assume but that's what in guessing. Another local college had the same stipulations and it was due to their board pass rate. From what I've seen there hast been too many having difficulty passing the board through this school so i dont know. I know that I have already learned a lot. I am currently in rnsg 2514( I think that's it) I am glad they are letting us finish I just hope that a lot of us if not all pass boards so more people can take advantage of this program. Maybe we will hear something when we start back on the 7th. Russell what class are you in?

    jsplemons,
    Good morning. I am about a final away from passing Rnsg 1300, Health Assessment. I didn't know of Lamar so I was prepping for Angelo State. A wasted year studing for those NLN tests. But in that year I did make an A in Patho which Lamar accepted. So I only had the one class this semester and I am thankful for that. I too would like to see the program survive and possibly that is on our shoulders? Hopefully the January cohort is not the last? Hopefully that has not been predetermined as no one is really visible with this. I have a co-worker ready to borrow my books later in 2013. I did order the Virtual book and should be here by the weekend. I will try to get a head start on that one. Can you tell me what exercises to do in Virtual? What are the first chapters to study?

    1busymaniam-
    I started in Sept, and I am about to take my finals for Health Assessment and Patho (tonight actually at 20:45) so I am guessing we are in the same class? I live in Abilene, but I grew up in Odessa- I assume OC still has a crazy waiting list for the RN program! Good Luck to you and let me know if we are in the same class! Thanks

    Hi Amber, Nice to hear from you. I can't tell you about OC but I am sure the waiting list is still there. I knew I couldn't do OC as I simply must work frequently. So I tried Angelo State but they suspended the program before I could enter. That did get me to take Patho so I don't have to take it at Lamar. Yes I must be in your class as I have the final at 830 pm but only Health Assessment. I do get to study today here at work. It is my commute day so I hope I don't have a car problem or ER problem but my relief is supposed to come in early just in case. Both your finals tonight? Hope everyone remembers the final is on Wednesday as all the others exams were on Thursdays. Good luck to you.... Russell Roach

    @bozman - The computer class is easy. It is just extremely time consuming. You have lots of busy work to do in 5 weeks. As long as you turn in your assignments and follow the instructions you will be fine. I also recall the test were not that many questions but I can't remember how many questions they were.

    bozmon,
    I don't remember when the exams were in the computer class. I was speaking of the Assessment class and yes the first three exams were on Thursday but the final was on Wednesday. If someone wasn't paying attention then they could miss the final?

    I had a question. How many hours do you have to do for each 5 week clinical class?

    I am starting 1423 and 1260 on Monday. I have ordered all of my books, but just found out that the skills manual that I ordered as a rental has been cancelled because they no longer have it in stock. I can't find this book anywhere unless I want to pay over $700 for it. Does anyone have this book for sale or maybe know where I can get it?

    vma71,
    I had problems finding this bundle to purchase. Don't recommend renting it as you may not have all the access. It is available at Lamar St bookstore. Yes the bundle is expensive! I start on Monday also. Not sure what else to suggest?
    Good luck............. Russell Roach
