    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.

    Merit is in fact profit focus but honestly which school isnt? I paid my tuition out of pocket and I graduated from Merit. The boards exam was a piece of cake, and everyone that took the boards from my class passed on their first try. Along the way i saw many students dropping out and complaining that the school was awful but what do you expect if you dont want to work hard. Everyone that stayed is now an LPN and those that dropped out are still unemployed and complaining! If you want to make it... they offer a way but you have to do your part and as far as the tuition cost is a small price compared to what you will gain.
