Hohokus LPN: Anyone have any info on the program?

  1. Hi, I tried typing Hohokus into the search engine and didn't come up with much. I was just wondering if anyone out there could give me some information on the LPN program at Hohokus. Do the classes there count as college credit if you try to apply for an RN program after graduating? Is there a lot of competition to get in? Approx. how much is tuition? I didn't find too much information on their website and I would call but I am in Spain right now. Thanks

    HoHoKus School of Business & Medical Sciences Hackensack- Proposed Bilingual Practical Nursing Program

    Representatives from HoHoKus Bilingual Program provided the Committee with an in depth presentation regarding an innovative Bilingual Program which the school would like to institute. Admission criteria, tuition costs, textbooks, and the curriculum plan were presented. Essentially, HoHoKus plans to provide ESL education in conjunction with the nursing program. The plans are to progress from Spanish to English in the presentation of the practical nursing curriculum. This will lengthen the curriculum from 12 to 18 months.

    The Board President, and Executive Director have received letters of support from Ruben D. Fernandez, MA, RN, Vice President, Palisades Medical Center regarding this program. After discussion the Board, upon a motion made by Leo-Felix Jurado and duly seconded by Constance Wilson, voted that approval be granted to the HoHoKus School of Business & Medical Sciences Hackensack Bilingual Nursing Program, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 13:37-1.16 (d). In addition, the school is to submit an evaluation report to the Board within 3 years from the date of implementation of the program regarding the effectiveness of the Spanish-English curriculum. The motion carried. http://www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/nursing/minute/nur919.htm

    Hi thanks for the reply! I'm actually a little more interested in finding out more information about the regular LPN program, unless of course it is easier to get into the bilingual program. Haha but I don't know if I would be allowed into the bilingual program since I was born in the USA and speak fluent English:roll .

    I go to the Hohokus Hackensack location. Go to HohokusHackensack.com for more info. If you want the Ramsey location, just click on the eastwick college symbol and chose Ramsey.
