    Yes u gey to choose where u want to go! I know one teacher goes to the veterans hospital in philly bc she worked as an army nurse for 11 years. But we have acute psych peds longterm amd al we have to go to all of those types ill keep you posted to specifoc places but you pick the place you want based on,where you live or as far as you want to drive one teacher maybe at a place in philly and one in delaware and one in jersey you,chose where you want to go even if its not your teacher as long as its the same clinical skills which all teachers do at the same time

    How have the courses been so far? Do you know anything about when the NEXT set of classes (for another group of LPN's) might be starting? I just lost my job a week ago and am figuring things out and would LOVE to get into nursing.

    How is Moorestown's campus? Hope you are all doing well!

    Hey there, i went to Lincoln Tech in paramus. I did the evening program because I have kids. My take on lincoln tech is that they are all about $$$ my tuition was 23,000 and I felt like they rob their students. They keep taking in students left and right without having aproppriate staff. Many time we would go to class or clinical and wouldnt have an instructor. Also, sometimes we wouldnt have a classroom because they would over book classes! It was crazy! I did finish the whole orogram and Im sitting for nclex tomorrow.

    Hi everyone! I'm new to this site & I have been looking into LT in Moorestown for a few weeks now. I was attending CCC for the past 2 years but after being told I will be on a 2 year waiting list for the LPN program I decided I need to do something now, that's what led me here. I have been looking up information & this is so far the first positive forum that I have found on this school. I have read horror stories but it's hard to tell if they are from serious students or not. Can someone please answer a few questions for me, if at all possible? It would definitely settle my nerves so I could set up an appointment to view the school!

    1) Is it true that the teachers do not teach?
    2) Do you REALLY have hands on training?
    3) Will hospitals/doctors offices accept a technical school over a county school graduate?
    4) How much does it cost?
    5) If you have graduated already - How difficult was it to find a job & is it true that the school takes forever to send you your diploma?

    Thank you SO much in advance

    I actually had to reschedule an appt I made last week so I'll be going to speak to someone this week in admissions. I'm in the same boat as you but I think at the end of the day it is what you make it. I think MOST of the program is SELF STUDY. which is why most students say that it was hard, and they didn't learn much and so on. I mean expect some of the teachers to suck..lol. Wasn't there ALWAYS a teacher who sucked? You pretty much have to learn what you can in class, and study as much as possible or invest in a tutor if needed. Now thats what I gathered after hearing so many people's testimonies which didn't dissuade me from going really.

    The pros about this school were, FOR ME, the fact that I don't have time to be on a waiting list, and I didn't want to have to apply to a college where you need SOO many requirements and have to deal with all the competitiveness just so you could be wait listed! Some folks have the time but with me hating my career (I'm an underpaid CNA), being a single mother and having children I've decided to take matters in my own hands. The cons of course are THE COST! Its up there...expect 20,000 or so. FA helps a lot though. For me not so much.

    Also LPNs are slowly being phased out so most who graduate in a LPN program plan on becoming a RN asap next. RNs are becoming the NORM. These programs are just a shortcut for some. Most hospitals these days have "patient care techs", so you can see why its harder for LPNs to work in hospitals these days. Most end up in nursing home facilities and so on. which is pretty tough but hey, you gotta start from the bottom to get to the top sometimes.

    As far as hosp./doctor offices not accepting Lincoln students, I don't think that really matters to most employers. I think experience and having your NCLEX is what counts the most. Being licensed is what counts.

    No one can tell you what YOUR EXPERIENCE may be like. It may be a perfect fit for you (especially if your a go getter) or you may hate it. Either way, I think making an appt (keep in mind admission counselors are sales reps lol), taking a tour, and speaking with some students won't hurt. Now obviously, Lincoln won't amount to a college because its not BUT as I said for some of us, this is a shortcut and our last resort!

    but your questions were great...i know I can't help you more but if ANYONE DOES HAVE THE ANSWER to some of those, then let me know too.

    If you decide to go, and end up taking the TEAS, then let me know! It would be nice to keep in touch with someone who's thinking of enrolling soon. AND ANYONE ELSE WHO's been accepted.....I'm not planning on starting until this fall if all goes well.

    I've read a whole bunch of reviews for LTI. Some were scary, some were encouraging. I am starting the 16 month program tomorrow, 10/17/11. I have a need to succeed. I am choosing to take each negative review with a grain of salt. In my opinion, this course is going to be challenging. It should be tough, I'm trying to be a Licensed Nurse for goodness sake. I would hope that it takes some effort. Bottom line, I've been in many healthcare situations, as a patient. I am determined to be one of the top students in my class. I believe that it does not really matter where you go to school... All that really matters is that you learn the information and conduct yourself in a professional manner. Passing the test to become licensed is the ultimate goal. I don't expect to be coddled during school, I expect to be taught and given information to process as knowledge. If anyone has any advice or help to offer, please speak up.

    Old dog...good luck!!

    I started LTI in September...so far so good....you will get out of it what you put in to it, so far everything that I was told I would get is what I have gotten,theres A LOT of book work & if you don't stay on top of it you will quickly fall behind...before I started LTI I read all of the negative comments & I am so glad I didn't let that stop me from going to the school..those that write the commentator are probably the ones that didn't do well...the first few days is gonna take some adjusting but soon as things get underway you'll be just fine...again good luck!!
