    Neither of the two I've been really looking into are directly in Boston, but right outside the Boston city area, yes.
    They would be very close & convenient enough for someone in the city to commute to, IMO.

    I do know Roxbury Community College has an LPN program if you're looking for something right around the inner city.

    I've been strongly thinking of going with MPI. Pretty adamant about it actually...

    http://www.mpi.edu/

    BUT, considering I may not be able to make it in time for the start of their next program, I was just searching around for some alternatives & discovered NSCC has a wonderful 40 week PN program... (Also opposed to the 45 at MPI, with a supposedly top notch, very well-rounded program)

    http://www.northshore.edu/departments?depcode=pnr

    All admissions requirements must be submitted by early June, and then they accept 40 applicants to start in the Fall.
    I didn't like some of the requirements of their RN program, so personally, I'd advance to that through EC & distance learning.

    Good Luck!

    The quickest and cheapest LPN program around is the program run by the state of massachusetts at the Chelsea Soldier's Home. Its around $2,500 for the 9 month program but you have to agree to work in any state facility for one year after graduation, otherwise you'll have to pay the additional $8,000 - $10,000. its a pretty good deal because they help you to get a job as well. They only take around 35 students year. Good luck!

    Hi all, I have been looking into the mpi lpn program, and have a few questions. What is the test they give and I guess you have to answer two essay questions? I know they give the teas after you pass that test. Im hoping to start the in the Jan 3rd class. Any info would be great. Thanks

    Yes they give you some entrance test that is not so hard.
    Basic maths and english and basic science.
    You will do well.
    After u passed with 80 percent then they will allow u to take the
    TEAS.
