I'll be starting at VEEB in the Fall and was wondering if there are any current or past VEEB students that can give some info on this program.
What are the Teachers like?
What are the required books?
Is the program as intense as they say?
Do they have articulation agreements with other nursing (RN) programs? If so, with who?
Are there any disadvantages in taking the LPN course outside of a Community College setting?
Do they provide job Placement at the end???
Any information that ANYONE can provide will be GREATLY appreciated! I really want to have a full understanding of what I'm in for. I have 2 year old Twins and I am a little worried about whether or not I'll be able to juggle school/studying and Family!
I have VEEB students that come to my hospital for clinicals, and had one instructor that left VEEB to become a clinical instructor at my college...she was a tough one!
The only disadvantage of attending a vocational school verses a community college is that if you decided to get your RN, you would have to retake anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, english...etc and on a college level. But, I do think that most vocational schools give you just what you need.
From what I have seen, their students have to wear white uniform dresses with blue stripes going down on each side, they told me that it is hard (then again, any nursing program
is demanding). According to their old professor, it IS as demanding as they promise to be. But, sacrifice, time managment and dedication should be on your side if you wish to do this. I am not sure if they have job placement, but, I don't think it would really be necessary, to tell you the truth, because most new grads here in New York have been able to get jobs quickly. I don't see the books that they use, because in clinicals, most people only bring a notepad and a drug book. Also, not sure if they have an articulation program to the RN. Good luck to you!
