St Joseph School of Nursing

  1. Any went or going to St Joseph School of Nursing for LPN-RN classes please?
    I will like to know if its possible to live in MA ( Lowell, Dracut, Tyngsboro area) and commute to Nashua.
    Are all classes held on Nashua Campus?
    Is TOEFL still compulsory if you took some college english classes ?
    Thanks in advance.

    I have tried to look for a forum for this school and I can not find one. 🤔 I am applying for the Jan RN program, examining for the Teas tomorrow.

    I'm currently in the program. Got accepted in July. Yes, all classes are held at the Nashua campus. It's very helpful if you've already taken tedious classes like micro, English II, & Sociology. That way, you can focus more on nursing and pharmacology. You definitely need to have A&P I&II (like many programs) to be considered for a spot. Any more questions, just ask! Good luck. It's definitely accelerated too. (LPN-RN 1 year program)

    Hello, do you say you have to have A&P 2 to get admitted in the St Joseph school of nursing LPN-RN ? Thanks

    Yes. Definitely. To be considered for a spot, you must have already completed A&P I&II within 5 years of your application...good luck!

    Hey Hun, my Teas didn't go really well - however today I received my acceptance later. Since they look at your overall accumulated GPA, I believe it helped me big time. I have a 3.9GPA overall. Good luck guys

    I have the orientation scheduled for 12-18-2015, I am very happy (ecstatic) I can not wait, when it comes to my studies I am done with all their non nursing core classes (sociology, psychology 101 and 41, A&P1, Biology, English 101 and 102, Algebra) I am only left with A&P and Microbiology.
    How far are you with their application? Only difference is you are an LPN and I am not so we might all need different pre-qualifications.

    I need to schedule a TEAS V to complete my application package. Where do you plan to take the A&P II if you are starting this January 2016? I thought they offer A&P at the school... Im quite disappointed to take it somewhere else because I tought I could just take it all together when i start in May. Especially now that my finances are tight and that I was hoping on financial upon admission at the program...

    I will be taking A&P 2 with them in January because it is on the curriculum, however if they do not offer micro in my first semester, I will register it at another local community college. As someone mentioned above - you being an LPN, it might be required before you start your program in May - as for me, it was not required because they offer it.

    You know... I start this week. Most students started in Jan but my schedule was for Feb 24th. I am excited.

    Hello Linexox hope everything is going well for you....NurseTrae same for you too I applied to take A&P2 with them during the summer. I keep in touch with them by email, they are not very responsive. I wanted to find out whats the A&P 2 schedule will be in May (days or evenings, how many days per week and what time) Im planning to take a couple of courses during Summer 2 at Middlesex , so I need to plan ahead.

    @Nurse Trae are you able to work FT with the program? Do they have interviews for LPN-RN applicants?
