    I just finished the LPN program at This school. Honestly its a bunch of miscommunication everything changes daily with this place. There is other places in Mi that offer this program and that is one yr. Latoya's is another one yr lpn program and is half of what it costs at AMC. NWLB has ran out of money and is asking for more. There is about over 3 thous ppl waiting to get started on this free money and about 5 thous waiting for a meeting eith Mi works. Dont hold your breath on this money just yet. Was just on the news this evening about it. AMC does not have a payment plan either. If your desperate enough to get into a school I would go here but other than not for get it. This place was nothing but a headache. Look online at the other places in Mi. This school doesnt offer this program at the det location either. And also there is another place its located in westland that does the one yr lpn I looked into but already in this program in flint. There out there. Good luck

    Im in the process of going here, its close to me, its one year, it also doesnt have the waiting lists, because of the high costs. What im wondering is how are folks paying 20k to go there? Also my goal as is anyones is making money i.e. a job, are you working? Did they help you find work? Do you feel compentant as a result of their training? I was told today students took loans out thru Sallie Mae but cant do that anymore, so if you ask me they are hurting for folks to get in because they cost so much alot of people cant come up with the funds. Can you transfer into an lpn to rn program? Meaning the credits you get there are they good for anything beyond the LPN one year?

    i had a former coworker that finished amc last year. she never really complained, but she never really made any positive comments about the program either. she passed her boards on the first try and now working as a lpn. i think that's a lot of money for a lpn program. i'm paying less than that for a rn program. which way you decide to get your nursing license; good luck :wink2:. it will be well worth it :wink2:

    Yes but can I expect to be employed after, the money for the program is coming from TAA for displaced workers, so it aint my money, I know someone that is a displaced worker going to Everest for a one year LPN at 30k

    I was also told salaries for LPNs are around 20/hr? Is that true? Im just asking this before I get into this so-called one year program, will I find work after going to AMC and will I be getting paid?

    Got another question, during your LPN training you become a CNA? If thats true can you work during your training too? So much I dont know

    Has anyone who has taken these one year technical school LPN programs had any trouble getting into an LPN-RN program at a traditional (CC) school after? Care to share your experiences? I don't want to stop at just LPN, but I don't want to have to wait ages just to get into an LPN program at a community college.

    Your concern is the same as my own, my thing is with a technical school I have heard of folks finding work after, and in this economy it would be great if you could work earning money and experience while going thru the transition from lpn to rn, I hope its a good sign that from what I have learned, whether tech school or major university all of these programs are filled to capacity with students, so it must have some value.

    Honestly I dont feel prepared. I mean its nursing school Its hard regardless and if that is the only place you got in at then go there. Sallie Mae doesnt do a loan for this. Trust me been there done that and fellow classmates. I dont a 10 G bridge loan from the school its a private loan and you need a co signer that has great credit. Then the other half I got from no worker. I honestly felt this place was a nursing mill. They get you in and out. But by the time u go youll have new I mean new teachers like Mrs.Bell who came on in our last semester and well she doesnt like to answer any of your questions and it made it difficult. I didnt work while in school alot of ppl did and I dont know how they did it. All I can say i read your materal

    I saw someone else mention this but I am currently attending Latoya's besides the horrible unprofessional name it is a good school. I do think that I am getting a stellar education from there and it was only 13,000 dollars for me to attend. It's in Saginaw and it's only a 1 year program from October to October. I think that the class for 2010 the tuition will be 14 grand. The downside to this program is since it's a nonprofit school there are no payments plans and that almost stopped me from attending.
