Degree of Difficulty taking LPN through distance ed.

  1. I am thinking about taking the LPN course through NorQuest by their distance ed. program, and I was wondering if anyone knows hord hard it is / how much time daily needs to be spent working because I need to know if I could keep my job while doing this course. I work 5 days a week 8:30 - 6:00 so I would have to do all the schoolwork after work or on weekends. Would this be possible or would I not have enough time?

    Just a question- how do you do your clinicals?

    Never heard of an online LPN program. Where is the clinical portion?
