congrats on getting into VEEB!
i don't know if there is more than 1 VEEB, so i'm basing my responses on the one on long island.
i don't got there, but i do have a good friend of mine who is there now. from what she tells me, it seems that she really likes it there! she gets along with the teachers very well. sorry i don't know what textbooks they use. i believe that the program is intense. according to my friend she has like 3 tests a week! and during finals, it's almost a test everyday. the tests are based on specific topics (cardio, neuro, peds, pharm etc). you attend clincal every other week. so one week you're in the classroom, the next you're in clinicals. they're done at various LI hospitals, and some nursing homes, LTCs. i don't believe that taking an LPN course outside of community college is a disadvantage, but an advantage. some schools
will allow you to challenge the fundamentals semester so that you can continue where you left off so to speak. as far as job placements go, once again i'm not sure.
that's all i know about VEEB. i attend nassau community college pursing my RN. i hope my knowledge eases some of your anxiety! congrats again! and good luck!
