    Akanini,
    Do i have to buy the textbooks at the school or online? Which way is better or the cheapest. For the physical how much money i have to bring. I already know it costs $125 but as i was not born in this country maybe i will need more immunizations. It is just i do not want to go there with a shortage of money.:uhoh21:

    The pre entrance test/orientation is mandatory. Last year we did the written assignment and they only collected the interviews. You had to interview three older people. The written assignments are what you will learn in the first weeks of class. Its for your benefit but the instructors wont check it so its up to you. I know you guys are anxious. We have 14 more weeks until graduation. It will go by so fast. You just have to study hard. BLESSINGS!

    Buying online is cheaper and the physical gets added to your tuition bill. Did you pay a $1,000 deposit yet?

    yes, i already pay my deposit a month ago. But, I see on the paperworks i have that the price for the physical is $125. I was thinking the school wants me to bring the money for the physical. it seems the textbooks are cheaper online. Awesome!!!!:typing

    thanks. i am going to have to take the day off then. but it wll be worth it in the end

    Last year I called to change the date and they told me no. This is the only day a doctor and his staff will come in and do the physical. It's mandatory you be there. Your immunizations must be in order and you have to take their drug test. The test is to see where you are at. You are already in the program. This test has NO effect on your grade whatsoever. The teachers use it as a tool when you start to see your progress in the program.

    Akanini,
    Do you think someone in LPN school can work part time? From the way i see things for myself, i will probably buy a car for the school. And with this carpool thing i think it will be to much for me. Therefore i will buy my own car so that i can do the carpooling. Are You working while in school? How many hours do you work in a week. Do you think it will affect my grades?:uhoh21::typing

    Some people work full time, part time and none at all. I left my day job to do this program. Thankfully my husband supports the family in order for me to do this. It's a personal thing. First semester is easy so you can start off working and take it from there. Are you sure you want to get a car with these outrageous gas prices?

    hello guys i was unable to log on cause i did not have access to a computeer. then when i was able to log on i already done forgot my password so i had to re register again. anout this car pooling thing. I am looking for somebody else who also drives to carpool with. Number 1 it will ease the money situation. right now the gas prices are so ridoclusly high that if i have to pick up somebody and drop them off every day i would have to charge them at least $55 a week(SUV). then it will be a better ease on me not to drive every week. I could drive for 2 weeks and another person drives for the other 2 weeks. therefore no money have to be exchange and nobody have to really depend on any one if one cant make it one day. If anyone is interested please let me know before the may31 so we can arrange to meet eachother at the medical.

    DO U drive? if u drive i am not asking for money at all. U drive your car for 2 weeks and I will drive my truck for 2 weeks. if i can get a third person who drives that will be even better cause each of us will only drive everyother month which will save money in our pockets and ease from the hassle of driving everyday. and plus not to mention the fact that we wont have to depend on eachother cause if one of us can make it one day or is running late, you still will have your own vechicle to make it out there. I live somewhere between flatlands and East 105 street.

    hey george, i m a driver i am interested in your car pool. i agree with your proposal and is defintely willing to take turns driving with you. considering the fact that I dont drive in real bad snow i can make them up by driving an extra 2 or 3 days added on to my 2 weeks of driving or i will just take the train. i m sure we can work something out. i will private message you.

    I have a tuition question.

    So do I pay the 9,500 in one shot? Or is it by semester and if so how much?

    TIA.

    Every semester. You pay roughly $3,600 for 2nd and 3rd semesters. They $1,000 deposit is deducted from 1st semester's tuition so it will be about $2,600.

    hi
    I wanted to know if after the first semester, how long after could u take the state board to becoome a certified nurse aid? I currently just have a weekend job, but i think it is go to become to much for me to work every weekend plus go to scholl 5 days a week. i rather work a per diem contract shift and get at least everyother sat/sun off.
