Tell me more about the Deconess program please.
Here is there web address
Be sure you go to "edu" and not "org" as this is a hospital named Deaconess.
I am enrolled and to begin in June. This is, to my knowledge, the only nursing college that permits students no former medical background or education. Having said that, depending on your background/education determines where you begin in the program. Obviously for those who are already LPNs then they would not begin at the same point as someone with no nursing education.
I have researched the college extensively and their reputation is outstanding. They are a nursing college and grant degrees in nursing only. They have a very long history which you can read on their website. The college also offers the traditional on-campus programs for those who are interested.
Good luck, email me too if you have questions. I will do my best to answer them.
