Is their lpn program hybrid? do you know what the schedule is like and how difficult it is to get into their program?
Thanks so much!!
I've applied for their LPN program for fall 2013 and here's what I know about it. It is a hybrid program, with bookwork/theory offered online and labs/clinicals offered nights and weekends. Testing/lab is held on Thursdays from 4-10 pm, and clinicals are held on Saturdays or Sundays. Labs meet on the Davie county campus, which I understand is about a 30 minute drive from the main campus.
There are only 20 students admitted per selection cycle, and admission is weighted pretty heavily on the results of the TEAS exam. You can earn additional points toward admission for completion of A & P (depending upon your grade).
I was concerned at first about whether or not an online program would be as thorough as face-to-face class meetings, but I've checked the BON website and the program has a 100% pass rate on the NCLEX for the last three years. So they must be doing something right.
Their application deadline is January 31, which includes completion of the TEAS, so if you're interested in attending next year you'll need to work fast.
