    Hello everyone, I will also be entering the lpn program in Jan 09. I work for the Hudspeth Regional Center which is right across the street from the State Hospital and they have the exact same program. I am also a single mother and it would benefit me to the fullest to get in one of the programs being that you get paid and have state insurance at the same time. I just dont want to sign a contract with them for two years and not having a say in what shift I recieve after finishing school. I know a couple of nurses out there that went through their program they said it was ok. One nurse is a single parent and when she got out they put her on c shift 11pm-7am and in order for her to to get on day shift she had to write a letter and wait for a position to become open. So she went from C, B, to A shift in about a year. So GreenIdgurl thats some of how it works at the Hudspeth Center not sure how it goes at Whitfield after you finish. But i am going to go to the DON and talk to her myself and she what options if any that program has. So If that doesnt bother you I think both programs are great and I say do it. I'm trying to come up with some other options i so when i finish i can at least have a say in something. Not sure what but i know i need to come up with something quick. School is going to be demanding enough.lol

    By the way GreenIdGurl I live in Jackson to and was wondering what program you got into. I got into HindsCC Vicksburg campus. The Jackson campus waiting list was tooooooo long so I took the shortest list they had available.

    I graduated in Aug 05 from Vicksburg campus(LPN). It is actually the best campus, not so many different teachers and only about 35 students. No one to tell you it is too many of you like I was told about the Jackson campus (they try to weed you out). I just graduated from the LPN to RN bridge program Aug 1, 2008. Only one instructor in class(a good thing only one personality to get to know). Bye the way I think Jackson takes at least 50 students(LPN).

    I used grants and student loans for LPN school. I used WIA for RN schoool. Think about where you probably want to work and see what they offer for tuition assistance for LPN school, hospital is best. I went to a nursing home afterwards for 19.50/h 3-11 shift. The hospital would have helped me more for LPN to RN bridge. I still made it thank God, waiting to take boards.:imbar

    I had heard that the Vicksburg campus was the best. I was working in a nursing home as a cna and a lpn told me that she transfered from jaxon to vburg because of the way the teachers treated the students. I've been thinkin about where i wanted to work and still dont have a clue. Good luck on your boards i'm pretty sure you are gonna pass.:wink2:

    Bump. Does anyone know if this program, the Educational Advantage Program through Mississippi State hospital, is still active? Thanks for any info. I will be starting LPN school in August, so I am looking for funds.
