I had my panel meeting yesterday at Lincoln Tech in Moorestown and I need some honest feedback about the. LPN program. Im turning 43 in July and ive been working in healthcare for nearly 20 years with no title behind my name. I completed the MA program at Anthem Institute in November and even thoughI maitained a 4.0 throughout the entire program, I feel I didnt learn much because it was full of drama. I need to go further because my current position is a definite dead end. Ive been employed at one of the hospitals here in S Jersey and im" stuck like Chuck" with nowhere to go. In order to advance I need to become a nurse or get my degree in something else such Health Information Management. Before I sign on the dotfed line, I want the truth about this institution. Any and all feedback please. THANKS

! I am seriously looking at Lincoln Tech in Moorestown as well. I was taking classes at BCC but with all the pre reqs and the waiting list, I was looking at least 3 or more years to graduate! I am 38 years old and have 3 little kids and though I am a cna now I have not worked the past year in order to stay focused on my studies.I don't have that kind of time to be out of work though, I need to get a good job within the next year or so! I have read a lot of negative comments about the school , but I also happen to know 2 lpn's who graduated from their program (when they were in Mount Laurel) and both are working and are satisfied with the education they received. I was impressed by the new campus in Moorestown. It was very clean, and expansive! Also the labs and classrooms look really nice. I checked out their pass rate for the NCLEX and it is at 70 or so percent. So I am guessing that after you complete the course you are really going to have to hit the test review books hard! Hopefully that number goes up with the class I'm in if I do decide to go!
The only thing I can honestly say that is keeping me from signing the papers at this moment is the cost of the program. I am going to have to take out some student loans to cover it as, I only received about $3600 in pell grants. If I can not finance most of the amount, I will not be able to go as I do not have income available to pay a monthly tuition bill.
The recruiter I have is pushing a hard sale with me, I have passed their version of the "teas" -honestly I wonder if everyone does, lmao! Had to wonder if the proctor in the room was busy changing test answers on her little computer as I know I did miserably on the math portion but I still managed to pass the whole test with a 72! Than the recruiter was like "wow! you're so smart!" I was like "aww, you say that to all the girls!" lmao! lolz! They really pitch the sale!
SO anyway, I go back on Friday to sit in front of "the panel" -Hopefully I will be able to sit down with financial aid as well and get more insight on how much it is really going to cost me.
