    Do they offer the pre requisites there or do you have to take them elsewhere. I'm interested in bridging over to RN but my school isn't credit based. We don't take BIO or CHEM. any info would be greatly appreciated :-)

    Yes they do, I am currently a nursing student.. Its a nursing school within the college so the prereqs are offered. Unlike schools who are the "School of Nursing", which wont"

    Hello all,
    I am a lpn(8 years) that has been accepted in the monroe college nursing program. I just finished my 1st semester and have 2 more to go. I have to say that I am very impressed with the program as of yet. They have just the right amount of "really hard" professors with "easy going" professors to balance things out. My grade point average was 3.9 and that with taking 3 nursing courses at once in the first semester. Its really a smooth and professional run program. Im am excited because the bsn program is to start within 2013. so it will be lpn-rn-bsn( can be completed in 3 years). I am noticing that no hospitals in nyc will hire associate degree rn's fresh out of school nursing homes which was always easy to find a job is not hiring fresh out of school lpn's or rn. if any more questions about Monroe, please ask.

    Sojourn, im currently in bmcc (liberal arts) to my understanding after completing my pre reqs i would b transfered into the rn program. Well it isnt so easy ur competing w others who hold 4.0 while im holdn nothing compared to that. Ive heard of the monroe lpn to rn, r u guaranteed a seat into the rn program upon finishn the lpn program. Would it be cheaper to attend monroe or go to a school thats offers the bsn?

    Hey I have a question about the nursing program at Monroe. When you went for the interview at Monroe did they tell you the same day that you was accepted into the program or did they call you or send you a letter to tell you that you was accepted into the program?

    Mildred Elley seems to be not a great choice,even though they have evening classes, it's just not for me. So Monroe it is! I spoke with someone on the Nursing Dept today and I was told that you can complete your pre- req's there and also i'm scheduled to sit for a nursing information session next week, i'm looking forward to begin classes soon!

    I just finished my associates RN at monroe college , WATCH-OUT!!!! this program is NOT ACCREDITED( its accredited by the state which they will tell you, but it needs to be nationally accredited), if you looking to work in a hospital- do not expect find a job when you graduate, almost all hospitals require students to graduate from an NLN or CCNE accredited college.

    Im currently going to an RN-BSN college that is NLN CCNE accredited- thank- god I'm not making a mistake this time around.

    Also 20,000 a year LPN year
    Another 20,000 Associated Rn=$ 40,000 (this college is WAY too expensive) prob cause its for profit
