Reasonably priced LPN School in Northern NJ?

  1. I have been looking around, and it seems every school around here is at least $15,000 There are no waiting lists for these schools, which is a plus, but I'm having a hard time trying to justify paying that much! Do you know of any schools in the northern NJ area that are a little more reasonable, with no waiting lists? Where did you all go, and what was your experience like? Thank you so much in advance!

    The going rate for all the schools seems to be about the same...but what you get for your money may be very different!!!!! Beware of those schools that are businesses. They take in loads of students and the pass rate/graduation is very low is comparison.
    There are loans out there.

    I graduated in '94 from Sussex County Vo-Tech which closed a couple of years ago. I no longer live in the area, so it could have been restarted. Check all the vo-tec schools. Also, any RN schools will usually prepare you to sit for your LPN before finishing your RN...that might be an option.
    Try help organizations...I don't know what to call them, but I got into school through the Displaced Homemakers group...my husband and I had recently separated and my education was completely paid for. I know when they closed, they were charging about $6000.
    Maybe you'd be better off considering a community college and doing something like respiratory or phsical therapy...you can get loans for college that are easier to pay than all costs up front. And college credits might transfer in the future into nursing.
    Keep looking. You'll find something.

    sussex county community college has a great program and not too expensive. We get clinical students from them and have hired alot post graduation.
