    I haven't done that program but I do know it is the only accredited LPN school in DC. I just withdrew from a LPN program in DC that was horrible, so before you take the step make sure you do your research. I don't want you to go through what i went through.

    Good Luck!

    Thanks for your response. Do you care to say if that is the institution you were enrolled in.I am trying to get some feedback about this school.There is PG community college but it takes two years to complete.
    Anymore input would be appreciated.

    I dont mind at all VMT Education Center is the name of the school I went to.
    If I can prevent someone from making the same mistake I did I'd tell the world.
    Did you look into Howard Community College I hear they have an LPN program also.

    I'm currently attending Nursing School at Harford Community College. I'm in the RN program but they do offer a LPN program. You would take the first two semesters of nursing school and then the following summer take the courses for the LPN( The RN Students don't go to school in the summer). It's only one extra year for the RN program. Why not just go all the way? I've seen on this website that a lot of hopsitals are phasing out LPN's. Why restrict yourself to where you can work?

    VMT - I heard from a teacher at NVCC was a good school. This teacher (does not teach nursing) is lacking though in the teaching department and a lot of students complain about her. She recommended that school though.

    I attend Frederick Community College and they have a great LPN program and RN. The LPN is 1 year (fall & spring semester and 6 weeks in the summer). It is very competitive (I hear most are) but they are very good and I have heard from clinical sites, the nurses think we are very well prepared for practice by our school.
