    I don't know anything about the schools you posted - I took my CNA class at the Red Cross in Detroit.
    If you didn't know then shouldn't have responded to my question.

    I am looking to get training in CNA/PCT and do not know what are the best schools in Michigan to obtain this training from. Can anyone here tell me what are the best schools here in Michigan to get the best training from? I would really appreciate it a lot.

    Also, does anyone know whether or not Nexcare Health Systems in Westland and Hazy Institute in Oakpark good schools to attend?

    I mostly love my job. I'm the school nurse in a small elementary school. Almost 100% of the student body lives in poverty, 50% speak Spanish as a first language, and these kids are the best behaved, sweetest kids you've ever met. Very polite. I don't get paid nearly what I could make at a hospital, but I go in a 8am and get off on time every day at 2:30pm. I get my 30 min sit-down lunch every day and the front office treats my lunch like an inviolable promise. They do not call me out unless somebody has stopped breathing. Once they even refused to put a doctor through! Made her call back later. No nights, no weekends, no holidays, no call. Two and a half months off in the summer, 1 week for Thanksgiving, 1 week for Christmas, a week in Feb and 1 week spring break in April. And everybody loves me! I walk down the hall and I hear, "HI, Nurse D!" and "That's my nurse!" :redpinkhe Who wouldn't love this job?
    Wow...you're job really sounds great!

    I just put my application in today. Im so freaking nervous about getting in. I dont know what the cutoff will be Brittany. The counselor I talked to today told me that last Dec RN program had 60 4.0 applicants. There are only about 200 +/- spots so you do the math and go figure out what it will be this year to get in.

    Im applying for LPN which only has 30 openings. I need an A in this class so bad.
    You should have posted this comment in another thread. I specifically asked was occ a good school to attend? If you wanted to chit chat about how nervous you are about what the cutoff would be then you should post your comment in another section and talk with other people who are in the same situation as you are.

    Nurses do you love or hate your job? If so, what is it that you love or hate the most about being a nurse?

    I did one at Hazy Institute in Oak Park. It was 2 weeks and cheaper than the red cross.
    Is Hazy institute a good school to attend for CNA/Patient Care Tech training. This is a school that I have been contemplating on going to this fall, but I have not heard much about this school before and do not know if it's a good school or not. Also did the school help you all find jobs after you completed the program?

    I am thinking about attending Oakland Community College's LPN program. Can someone here please tell me whether this is a good program to attend or not and does the school help you to find employment after you have completed the program? Thanks in advance for taking the time to respond to my question?

    I would like to know are most students able to hold down a job while attending school to become a Physical Therapist Assistant? This is a field that I am thinking of pursuing but I need to have a full time job while working in order to support myself while I am attending school. And I would like to know in order to attend school for a PTA, can I attend school part-time for this field? Your help would be greatly appreciated.

    Is Dialysis Technician a good field to pursue and is it in demand? It is a career that I would really enjoy doing but I don't want to waste time going to school for it if there is not going to be many jobs available for it in the future. And does most hospitals and dialysis centers require you to have experience as CNA first before becoming a dialysis technician?

    The answer to your question is NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! 30 years now I've been hearing this, and for 30 years I've always had a job. In my area lots of LPN's work in hospitals. So tired of this question being asked, and being answered incorrectly by a few.
    I'm new to this site and am not on here every single day so I don't know what questions people are asking. I did not know that other people asked this question numerous of times before. Like I said, I am new here and just trying to find out is this field still in demand before I waste my time and money investing into this field.

    I have had other people tell me that going to school to become an lpn would be a waste of time because they are being phased out by CNAs. Is this true?

    Can LPN's also become dialysis nurses? If so, do they need to go back to school to get any additional training? I am interested in doing this type of work. Can someone please tell me how would I go about becoming a dialysis lpn? What are the things I need to do?

    If it helps, I live in Michigan.

    Did Aress Academy have job placement assistance available to you after you completed the program? And were you able to find a job through the school?
