    Congrats to all who have passed their pre-entrance exam. I am currently a VEEB student and wanted to let you know not to hold your breath. You might be waiting for a few months for an acceptance letter. I tested march 17 of last year and didnt get my acceptance letter until July 21. Im not saying you have to wait that long for one but dont expect it to come right away because they are still testing. But enough of that. I would recommend you all mentally prepare yourselves for 11 months of studying....studying and studying. This program is intense and you need to extremely focus. If you have a job you might want to consider to decrease your hours or just have no job. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

    Hey GLady17 I feel like I know you after reading this thread over and over and over again. I noticed that the people who end up taking the test later ..(march time frame) they end up waiting the longest for an acceptance letter versus people who tested earlier (february time frame). its seems this was also because of the bridge program and waiting to find out who would pass the 2nd exam. This year however they said no bridge program they would keep testing until they had 200 students. So things may be different I just hope mine is in the mail. I was very happy to read that you received your acceptance letter. I cant imagine how excruciating that was..now onto another topic ...I would like to put my name in the bucket for those book. I will be back with questions

    Will there be LPN jobs available or will they slowly phase out like the ASN degree? Also, what is meant by the bridge program? Is it the RN program (Helene Fuld) that VEEB graduates go if they've maintained an 85 avg?

    I hope they dont phase out LPN's but in our economy you never know. Nursing is still one of those jobs that is in high demand.

    The bridge program is put in place for those people who fell short it seems between .5-1.5 on either the reading section or the math section. Its a 2 week course and spots are held for the people who pass. It was $600 last year. However this program also puts people who did pass but tested on a later date on a waiting list.

    Helen Fuld is one of the nursing programs that is articulated with Veebs it appears to be the quickest because you can become an RN in a year.

    Hi Sim1479 I dont know anything for sure I am just going by what the test proctor said on my test day which was that they were not doing a bridge program and that this was our only chance if we didnt make it ..try again next year. However on this site this same thing was said before and they ended up having a bridge program.

    Hey from what I was told there are going to have the bridge program around June/July time.. I think to prepare for the ones who fell at least .5 to 1.0 behind points. But it is expensive, i think its $800- $1000.. The proctore did say that this is our only chance but if your only a couple of points behind don't see why not get another chance. Its more money for them.. I guess that's how business goes.. Money hungry business..
