    Hi, I went to BALC (Brooklyn site) there is no college degree required. Check cnetnurse.com for detailed info on the program. The course was worth my time. I am now an LPN and will go back to school this year for RN. www.cnetnurse.com

    Hope it helps.

    What time to what time is the school and how long? Tell me what to study for the entrance exam please.
    Thanks.

    Yea there's a lot to chose from. But they all have 150 questions that cover the same things and are written in the same format as the actual test. Each test has different questions but they all have the same three sections - Reading Ability, Numerical Ability, and Language Ability. They have 2 study guides that explain step by step how to arrive at the answers to the questions found on the actual test. The study guide includes 2 practice test. So its pretty much up to you on whether you want a couple of practice test or just invest 55 bucks to the study guide

    The second test is called the TABE

    I'm full time at my job also and a friend of mine that been through this program said they only accept people that are part time because its a lot of work. People that are full time usually drop out and they don't want that. I would love to stay full time but if they tell me that I have to go part time, then that's the sacrifice that I will have to make.

    Hope I helped!!
