    I also read that they will now be a 4year school..did u hear that also? Did you take advantage of the articulation program or did a normal application process?

    The 4 year school will take a while. It's not in effect yet...I did the normal application process.

    Here is the link to VEEB's web page.http://www.veeb.org/LPN_admission_requirements.php You can get most of the info there. Whatever isn't there you can call the admissions office and they will help you out. The testing is normally starts towards the beginning of February ( I believe). Start date of each class is determined by the school. I don't think they have released the info for next years start date. School is from 8am- 1pm. There is parking on the school grounds. Clinicals start like the 5th or 6th week in and they are located all over Nassau County. Passing grade is 70. Tuition covers just that, your tuition. Books, uniforms etc are additional cost.

    WOW.....I haven't been on in a while...so much information I have gained from you guys. I'm happy I passed my midterms but still want to work harder. I can't understand why are they splitting us up again for the second section. And why would they just call you and say "don't come to take the final....or don't come for the second section". I think thats a bit rude.

    If you are on BORDERLINE, VEEB will call you to come in and you will be counseled on what score you need on the final to make the 70%. From what I've heard, Veeb will call you AFTER the final to come in if you didn't pass the semester. So obviously with that, you won't go to 2nd semester. Your sections will stay the same each semester, but your clincal groups will change (which is a good thing, trust me).

    Ya the school is weird with that, especially in 1st semester, they let people come in the last day to get their grades after the finals on the two previous days. But some we never saw again the next semester.

    I concur about the clinical groups, you're either going to love or hate your clinical group.

    this question is to all veeb alumni:

    i feel like everyone including instructors are bashing "becoming an LPN". They keep saying "use this as a stepping stone" which is great and motivational. But some I feel are just making me feel bad. I do want to get my rn but going this route was best for me. Are there really NO jobs out there???

    There are definitely jobs, but if you're a new graduate with no healthcare experience such as my self it can be tough to find an ideal job. And take in to count I said "ideal", there are a few places that would take me in a heartbeat, but I've had to turn them down either due to wage or the workplace setting.

    For example I was offered $18/hour for home care. I'd love to do home care, and I know I have to pay my dues, but it's just not comparable according to other LPN's I've spoken to.

    I've been looking and applying to hospitals for the past 2 weeks and what I've found is that most vacancies are for RN's. Most of the LPN vacancies as expected are for long term care. I'm trying to avoid LTC but I'll probably be using it to get my feet wet.

    The instructors can say what ever they want, but at the end of the day do what you feel is right for you. But when you're actually in the thick of things like I am right now, the RN degree can't get here fast enough.
