    Hello,

    I just read through you all's post I am new to the rn/lpn world and looking to go all the way. I am currently enrolled at Davenport, but not sure if i am going to stay. I am taking my pre-reqs for there LPN program now, but I am not sure if i will get in for fall 2012 b/c of my science, do you have to have them all before you apply to Oakland or can you apply and still be taking pre-reqs? Also, as far as for paying do they take financial aid or is out of pocket only? Any other feedback about the program would be great as well!

    Thanks
    Hello, You can apply to the Riverview Institute (oakland Univ) program and be taking the pre reqs! You have to take Math and Pharm there or they wont except it! They DONT EXCEPT FINANCIAL AID!!! And its a very intense program! But jus like any other program youre going to work hard! They expect us to do GREAT so they have high standards for us! I hope everything works out for you! Good Luck

    Hey Ivey how is class going? I had to drop it because I THOUGHT I would be relocating, but that didnt fall through, so I will be re-registering for the class in September. How are you making out so far? How is the Anatomy class there?
    Hello!!!! Class is very STRESSFUL but I am doing well! Whenever I have a problem i make sure I get the help that I need! The A and P is HORRIBLE!!!! the book is G R E A T but the teacher is TERRIBLE! They will be hiring a new teacher so Id say go for it!

    OOOO ok, cool! Well, I am still trying to wait patiently to get that acceptance letter! Hopefully I do get it. That is all I need then I will pay to hold that spot & register for all the 3 classes i need for the sept.semester! I want to start doing nurse stuff already! I am truly excited & really I hope I get in.

    How are the prereqs goin? rate from 1-10?

    CONGRATS again to u!
    Thanks so much!!!! And SOOOO FAR if 10 is being good its a 7! They still are time consuming! i guess it depends on how much time your willing to put in! Pretty much is about time Mangement. Ill let you know when I get deeper in the courses since its only the 3rd week And Im pretty sure you will get in GOOD LUCK

    Hey Ivey!

    You had a meeting with them?

    That's great that you start the program in sept.2011!! Were you in the Jan2012 cohort before? How did you get bumped up? How long did it take for you to get the acceptance letter? was is through email or mail? Did you get the acceptance package already?

    Sorry so many questions. I just handed in my application beginning of this month! They just received it last week...
    To get bumped up you have to have all the funds. I didnt receive my acceptance I e-mailed them telling them I was in the pre req's so really I am not OFFICIALLY in until they see my grades are c's or better (which ofcourse they will be !!!! But you should receive your acceptance letter in the mail in 30 days

    Hello,
    I am a new LPN student. I just switched over from teaching. I am really excited to start nursing. I am taking the LPN route because of two main reasons. I wanna make sure nursing is what I really want to do. That way if I like it I can further my career if not I can still go back to teaching. As of now I am taking the pre classes to get in the LPN program. I'd like to hear from other LPN students and graduates. I wanna know was LPN school really stressful? Also I would like to know was it hard finding a job after? I am in the Detroit Metro area but I would love to hear from LPN graduates and students.

    Congratulations ladies!...I have a question, I plan on moving from Grand Rapids, MI to the surrounding Detroit area and I've been interested in this school for a few months and I plan on applying in June/July. If you ladies don't mind sharing, what were some of the highlights of why you were picked at Oakland Univ. Currently Im taking classes at the local community college here in GR to boost my GPA up my chances to get it would be a little better. If I applied in June or July, do you think they would push me to the Jan 2013 program?...to be accepted is an honor but I just don't wanna wait too long. Thanks in advance!
    Hello
    I am taking the pre-requisites to get in now. Im not sure exactly how it works for transferring but you might could get in the Sept 2012. I picked Oaklands program because of three main reasons. The first was I found out about the program in the metro detroit area. The secod reason was because I went to an informational that they have every FIRST Tuesday, At the informational I gained alot of information regarding the program. They have had some very successful students and they really seemed like they cared about their students. That made me feel very comfortable. The third reason was because compared to all the other metro detroit LPN programs they were the cheapest and you dont need to take an entrance exam. I hope I answered your ?. If you have any more let me know and GOOD LUCK
