  1. 2
    hey, i started the LPN program in September 2008 and was asked to withdrawal from the program April 8,2009 due to failing pharmacology and failing a 2 test in med surg, now i want to go back. I dont want to go back to the old school im looking for something new, maybe a school in NJ. Im in a better place than where i was in 2008 so i know im prepared. I was looking at Metropolitan learning institute in jersey city.....has anyone been here? Does anyone think "its too soon" to start again...

    I wanted to let you know that I too had failed in my first semester at school. I had past Chemistry and Pharm but got a 78 on the nursing course. My problem was test anxiety and over studying. I was devasted at first and then licked my wounds and applied to every school possible near my house 5 to be exact. I failed in Dec and by March was accepted into Christ Hospital School of nursing.

    Never give up on something you love doing!!! I have talked to alot of people and have gotten excellent tips to overcome testing anxiety and was able to bring those skills with me as I passed the NLN. I try not to let anything negative get me down everyone is talking about not getting jobs but for me I will cross that road when I get there. I love being in school and the second time around I am excited not ashamed that I failed but thankful and grateful for a second chance!!

    I also failed out of nursing school my first semester and want to apply to Christ hospital for the fall of 2011. Do you know if they require a certain gpa considering the fact that I would have a failing grade on my transcript? I was already told that I am exempt from taking their entrance exam because my SAT scores met their requirements. What else can I do besides raise my gpa this semester to better my chances of getting in the school?

    any advice would be great, thanks, and good luck to you!

    FutureRN Elizabeth,

    I'm sorry to hear that things didn't work out for you @ BALC. I remember coming on this site when I 1st signed up and endlessly looking for any info and asking so many questions because I had my heart set on that program. I was CERTAIN I'd get in and...that didn't happen.
    Instead I ended up attending Lincoln Technical Institute in Paramus NJ which is why I'm replying to you.
    I don't know much about the above named school that you mentioned but I wanted to suggest Lincoln Tech, I recently graduated from there and they have a really good LPN program, the instructors are there for you and encourage you to thrive. You can send me a PM if your interested in hearing more about my personal experience or chk them out for yourself(they have open house/tours every view days, gives you a good feel for the environment).
    I'm from NY as well, the commute wasn't too bad, its doable.
    Anyway, I Wish you the best of luck in your future Nursing endeavours.
    Lastly, I don't think its too soon to jump back in. If there aren't any obstacles and you feel ready then go for it!

    the hours at metropolitan are great 9am-1pm and the clinical sites are very convienent if you live in NYC or the five boughs.Ms. ****no names per ToS****and Ms ******are excellent nursing instructors. I would not go there if I were you. the school is not student centered and they do not care about the needs of their students. I think Lincoln Technical Institute is a better bet for you.
