    Im currently a Merit Student, I started in February 2009....Yes the school is money hungry and you must pay as you go along...however when you applied if you pass the entrance exam you get right into the program. All the local county nursing program has long waiting list. Merit has a good pass rate for the state board...and they are listed on the board of Nursing for New Jersey.....If I had a choose I would prefer to go to a local county school, but I can't wait 18months to start a program. If you stay focus and really want to make it work, you can with merit....all nursing programs are hard....

    yes, the practice entrance exam is the same as the acutally test....if you did the practice test with no problems than you should be fine...now if you been out of school for a while than you may need to practice. the test is timed so you must finish in that time period.....Good Luck...Im sure you will do fine..

    yes...i started at merit in feb...2009....expected grad date mar 2010.....merit school is okay....but very unorganized between staff and students....you must study very hard and stay out of trouble cause there is alot going on with the students.....it will work for you only if you are serious about nursing.....

    the professor will give you a syallbus for each class....you should get a handbook at orientation...

    Merit is straight BS in my book. They are in it for the money. I actually called them out. The director actually was afraid to let me sign up since I shot so many questions at him that he couldn't answer. Or when I corrected him on the BS he was tryna tell me. The don't even have financial aid. ***??

    I went in there with a little attitude because I didn't like how when I first came to take the test they ask for the $40 and my ID and didn't even say HI. How rude.

    The school cost about 15K that you have to pay $500 to hold your spot... 1K by orientation and about 1K a month afterr that for 6 months. The rest you can take a loan out (Not sallie mae or Chase) but their own private loan company. Ha yea right. If I'm not mistaken you have to pay the balance of the loan before you can graduate.

    Oh...books and uniform is not included in the fee.
    LOL..those people are ridiculous. I actually had a smirk on my face the whole time he was talking to me. He gave me a BS story about how they don't tolerated ghetto people or people who are roudy and act as if they grew up in th projects.... So they whole time the smirk is on his face.

    Well I let that bum know that I grew up in a middle class neighborhood,never been arrested or anything an I've been to school for info tech, networking, paralegal studies and graduated HS at 16. And I work at 1199SEIU (Which he didn't know is the union that represents healthcare workers) so I know what I'm talking about. Mind you I was 24 years old at the time. He was straight up sweating bullets. His mouth was all dry. He actually said That maybe this wasn't the school for me.
    Oh and I actually went there with 15K cash (pic on my social site page) to show him that paying for this school wasn't a problem. His eyes lit up when he saw all that cash. Hahaha.

    Well right now I'm just waiting to start Lincoln Tech in Paramus, NJ where I will be going for my LPN... Wish my luck people.

    You will have the same problem at LT only their program costs 22K. All those technical schools are alike, they admit anyone with a pulse as long as they get their money. They tolerate all kinds of ghetto behavior and the educational experience is a poor one. If you graduated HS at 16 whay are you not in college?

    Well I was pregnant then. And after that I went to Job Corps for about a year. When I was 18 I went for computer network training. After that I went to a 2 year college for paralegal studies. Around that time I was 21. I went to a community college to see if I can get into thier LPN program but didn't get in. I just missed the the minimum GPA. 2 years later I'm here..Going to Lincoln Tech.

    I'm sure there's gonna be cattiness and all that hot mess. But at least I didn't get that from the Director. Him and his secretary barely spoke English I mean come on. On top of that I don't want to be paying as I go even though I have the money. I would pick LT over Merit anyday. Out the 22K I have to pay 15K in loans so I'm fine. I saved 7K. That I will start paying $300 a month as I go so I can clear it out before I graduate Nursing School.

    You will get the syllabus on the 'interview'. Girl please you don't have to beat yourself up for the interview. It's not that serious. You will be sitting in the directors small cramped office where he's gonna explain the schools status and what types of students they desire. You will also be asked questions about yourself and why you want to become an LPN. He will also tell you about the cost of the program (about 15K). If you want to hold your seat the expect you to pay $500 then and $1000 by orienation. I wrote all this stuff already some where on this thread so go back and read. There's the payment plan too.

    But don't beat yourself up it's not that serious. .
