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.
