BROOKLN ADULT LEARNING CENTER-LPN Program

  1. 0
    Did anyone attend this school, or know any info. about their LPN program?
    It's more convenient for me to attend this school, and was hoping it was a good school. I think its free or at least cheaper than most schools out there. So i was wondering if they had clinicals, and were thorough with material, and so on...?

    Well, any info. would be greatly appreciated. Thanks all!

    They have to have clinicals or the NYS BON won't let their students graduate.

    There's almost no information on their website, just a mention that the program exists and a link to the pre-admission testing site. I find that vaguely concerning, but that's just me and my internet-dependent self.

    Brooklyn Adult Learning Center

    C-Net testing site - it looks like all the 2007 tests are full.

    Good luck!

    I tested for the program: The tests start in february and end in May or June....you must score at a certain percentage in order to progress to the next level, which is taking another exam...(TEAS, or something like that)...after that you are interviewed and they select a certain number of people to train to be an LPN. I have heard of people who went through the program and liked it....I scored well on the first exam and was contacted to take the second exam, but decided to attend a university for my BSN instead

    Brooklyn Adult Learning Center has a full list of students but no teachers.

    I was suppose to take this test but missed the date. I have the study materials . I heard the test was hard and the program is not all that great. ($60 for the materials went down the drain). However for $2000 a year, I guess you really couldn't ask for a lot. However, I am not one that likes to believe what others say sometimes. I do know someone who graduated from the program. I haven't seen him to ask how it went. I did hear however that you are pretty much "on your own" so maybe the "no teacher" thing is true. You will have to call in December for the application forms. It's a shame if it's unorganized though because I think this is the only program in Brooklyn. Please try other schools as well and best of luck.

    Nah, the test wasn't hard at all...basic math, readings skills and grammar skills...

    I'm not entirely sure how many students they take in...and ALOT of people take the exam....I was one of the first test takers in February and the number of people who tested with me that day filled a high school cafeteria...then we got divided into groups and tested in different classrooms
