    sharing is caring, my sister
    personally would not recommend that school..... not worth your time and money..... the following link could give you a good idea of the type of people they are..... and not to mention why they are really not accredited.....

    thanks for the link. this is what i have been trying to tell people. these types of technical schools have thrived during this recession for these reasons. they admit anyone as long as they will get paid. most of the clinical time is just on paper. attendence records, grades and anything else is fudged so that they don't have to expel anyone and lose their money.

    Hey. I wouldn't call it exactly a scam but they definitly are trying to milk you for your money. Think about it this way.....why start a CNA program and wait 6 months to start an lpn program when you can take a test for another lpn and get right into the program??? save your money and get accepted into a lpn and go straight through. You don't need to waste time. I know many schools in the NY/NJ area that has lpn classes starting in October.You will just have to take an entrance exam like any other. message me if your interested.

    i was in the same situation as u a few months ago, didnt know what to do, but one thing i will tell u im currently attending mildred elley lpn program, if you pass or score really high on thier test and take the test early, u will not have to take the MA first and then try to transfer, mildred is agreat school to me, the location is great, the hours are great, from 8 30am to 12 or 11, or 2 sometimes, only four days a week, morning and night and i think week end also, the tuition is a lil high but if u qualify for financial aid, do a great essay for the scholarship, take some loans, and transfer credit if u have them it will not even be a concern, and books and uniforms are included also, to me beside VEEB in long island, i dont know any other school i will rather go to...

    Im a lil late to this forum, but I use to go to Merit and I can tell you if your a very organized individual and looking for a set schedule do not go to Merit. Yea the class time n days of the week are scheduled but when its time to move onto the next class it may take 2-3 months sometimes. Meaning your 1yr LPN program can take a lil more than 1 1/2 yr. And they are very strict with their money. No money no test results. Financial aid forget about it. It doesnt exist there. If you tru calling the school you will be calling for hours!...But some of the teachers are very good and caring. The administrators may make you want to slap the xxxxxx out of one of them. Im definently moving onto my RN @ St. Pauls school of nursing.
