by MRS.PEREZ

This is just too much money for a simple certificate compared to a RN degree. I was thinking about going to this school but the price has been heavy on my mind. I was already accepted and theres no waiting list you just have to... Read More

    Just so you know, (I go to OCCC, but last year considered getting my LPN from Platt) Oklahoma hospitals and clinics will hire from a tech center or college or university before they'll hire from Platt or any other private owned college. As I was told by a radiologist from Oklahoma Heart Hospital "Platt college is pretty much the laughing stock of the medical field." She advised me STRONGLY against going that route, and I'm really grateful she did. The opportunities are much better as an RN than an LPN, but even if you just want your LPN, Moore Norman Technology Center was pretty easy to get into, and doesn't last THAT long.
    Not true. I, as well as my classmates and the classes before us had jobs before graduation.

    WorkofHeart8 im guessing you attended Platt? How was your experience & where were you employed after graduation?
    Everyones experiences are different, im just curious if you dont mind. I have quite a few friends who have graduated from Platt & some who are about to graduate. One of my friends does Hospice and also works for the Federal Transfer Prison, she graduated from Platt. Another friend works at the Detox center. With that info, im sure Platt being on your app isint as bad as most try to make it seem.

    Hi, yes I graduated from Platt and it was tough as the teacher turnover rate was very high so we had to get accustomed to every new teacher that came and change how we learned things and they made a lot of changes during our time there but we made it through. I work at a hospital and there are a few RN's there who got their LPN's at platt and had no issues with obtaining employment after going to school there.

    This is not true. Some of the best nurses I've worked with are from Platt. The CNO at my previous job graduated from Platts LPN and RN program. However, just about all of them did complain about the debt it put them in.
