    Thanks for the info (I'm starting Davenport's LPN in the Fall). I know a few people that are still interested in Oakland (Riverview). So Focus Hope on Oakman? Do you know if they can still get info from the Riverview institute?

    I believe so. They have temporarily moved to OU Rochester until the permanent move to focus hope

    Cool. I saw something on the website, saying they were considering the future of the program, so that explains it.

    Hi shan409,

    I applied for Davenport an was denied. Im thinking of applying again for the next session. How well did you do on your TEAS test?

    Do you know of any other schools aside from Davenport or Oakland?

    Hello,

    Do you have any information on when they will begin accepting applications again?

    I have found that they tend to be less expensive when comparing other LPN program..

    I really hope to start a program within the next yr...do you know of any other schools without wait list?

    Just so everyone knows, Oakland is considering getting rid of their LPN program and their accelerated program! Just to keep everyone informed.

    Wow...do you know why they may be getting rid of the program?

    It has to do with the increased applicants to the traditional BSN program, they are getting more and more each year and it's becoming more and more competitive. I believe over the next several years you will see the program requirements for OU increase and they will be incorporating an essay and an interview process. Thus being said they want to primarily focus on having a very prominent BSN program. That is only one of the reasons i have heard another is that there is a specific hospital in Michigan that has helped fund the accelerated program and they are more interested in traditional BSN students. It would be very sad to see the accelerated program go, I know a lot of very very hard working students in that program and I don't envy any of them, it's such a tough program on both your mind and body. With the LPN program I believe they just don't want to put money in a so called "dying field". This is all still up in the air but from what I have been hearing both will be discontinued in the next several years.

    Nurse Nik,

    I had a 68% on the TEAS-V (so not awesome) but they also weigh in your references, essay, and "nursing" experience. I've worked long term care and am now at DMC, I got my references from my supervisor (R.Ph.) and a fellow C.Ph.T. (pharmacy).

    I was initially denied for early admission, but received an acceptance letter in May (7 months later). I am applying for their BSN program now as well.

    Check michigan.gov for LPN programs, but I know Schoolcraft has one as well. I wanted a CCNE/ACEN accredited program so I checked those websites.

    Thank you Shan409,

    I really appreciate that information! I am going to retake my TEAS and reapply for the next session.

    I didn't have much experience when I applied, but at least now I have become a CNA! I will get my SUP or former CNA teacher to complete my reference.
