i'm hoping someone can shed some light on this for me.
i go to oakland community college (royal oak, mi
) and am taking my pre-req's for the adn program. i understand that in order to get into
the actual nursing program
, your gpa pretty much has to be top of the line. (3.86 or higher - this year
i have recently been looking into the lpn program (i still want to pursue nursing/adn, but thought that doing the lpn would be a good idea before continuing to the adn - job prospects, acceptance into adn program, etc.
does oakland community college offer lpn programs? i see they offer lpn to adn fasttrack, but is that only for already practicing lpns?
if anyone can answer some questions for me, i would really appreciate it:
1) is it as hard to become a licensed lpn?
2) do you have clinicals?
3) do you have to be accepted to a lpn program after you finish your pre-reqs?
4) if you have to get accepted into the lpn program, do you have to have a specific gpa?
thanks so much
