OCVTS Toms River 2014

  1. 0
    I am actually posting this topic for a friend of mine. She applied to a lot of Nursing schools (both RN and BSN) but did not get accepted in any of them. She has is losing hope, so I suggested that she try going the LPN route then bridge after. The closest program offering LPN to where she lives is OCVTS. The thing is, we can't find any info about their LPN program on the website. Are there any current or past students from OCVTS who can give any info on the program? How rigorous is it? What's the daily schedule like? What entrance exam is needed (TEAS V?) and what scores are minimum to get in? Thanks for any response you may provide!

    The entrance exam is TEAS V. I don't know the score you need to pass. It's not an easy program. The program runs from Sept to July. It's very fast paced with at least one quiz per day, sometimes 3. The day is divided into two subjects. Each teacher lectures and you take notes. You'll be tested on the material usually the following day. So that night, you study your notes, study the text and then read ahead and outline the chapter to be taught the following day (x2 because you're doing two subjects per day). You also have workbooks that accompany the textbooks that you need to keep up on. It's not impossible to do, but it requires discipline.
