    I attended the orientation on fort street. The one stop centers orientations consist of telling you about the financial resources available. The Nursing school is on the 4th floor at 455 fort street. There is a receptionist in the front that can tell you everything you need to know if you aren't getting info from the one stops. Again they basically prepare and approve u for your grant money. After that step is completed ur career coach will ask you what career you are interested in... you tell him nursing. From then your paper work will be transferred to the 4th floor which is the nursing school. So its really about how fast you complete your paper work with the one stop. Once thats completed stay on top of your career coach..My career coach told me he was going to put out a stalker complaint because I made my face known to him...he knew me by name and it paid off. As of now there is no waiting list. So anyone interested turn in your paper work as soon as possible. Fyi you can go to any one stop closest to you.

    I have been through all the steps required for the LPN program. They ordered my police clearance yesterday and yesterday is when my file in it's entirety went to the Medical Career Center. The next step is when I will recieve a call from the LPN Program letting me know when to come down for the orientation with them. I was told that I will start May 18th, but my worker that I was assigned to will confirm this tomorrow April 23rd. I will post again.......I pray that everything is ok so that I will not have to commute to Toledo OH July 7th

    Your welcome! I would call first and see what the school suggest. They have changed the procedures so I'm not for certain if you should drive there first with gas being so expensive. Call the Michigan works closest to you. I personally went to the one on Fort st. 962-9675 because its a one stop location meaning that when you turn in your paper work it doesnt have to go to another location...your paper work can actual be walked down one flight of stairs to the nursing Dept. If you go to another location which is fine it just will go through to many hands and thats more wasted time. The quicker the better. Let us know how it goes.

    Does anyone know if you have to be a resident of the city of Detroit for this program? I live in Wyandotte. Thanks!
