    Do you have any more info about this program ? I wonder if there is a waiting list since it is so new. Was it hard to get into the program ? I will call to find out more details. Thanks for posting this new information.

    No it wasn't hard because its the first class and I think they were trying to fill it. I took the SLE and the hesi and I was set. However next year may be different. There are only 2 LPN programs in town. There are a few people from CSN in my class. Tomorrow is the first day, wish me luck. Call them, I don't know when the next class starts. Get a head start.

    I can't say much about kaplan but I'm finishing an LVN/PN program in southern california on December 18th and all I can tell you is hold on tight...youre in for a fast ride. It's a great ride and you'll learn alot but some can get very overwhelmed.

    Stay up to date on all your studies and homework. Don't fall behind and ask lots of questions.

    Best of luck to you!

    I just went in to the SoCal Kaplan to inquire about their LVN program, has anyone been through it? It seems intense but well worth it to be done in a year, the only thing holding me back is the cost. I was quoted over $31K to attend, is this similar to those to have done their program??

    Here is some more info on Kaplan

    Yes it is accredited. So if you move out of state you are still good- assuming you pass the NCLEX. However, it is not a bridge program so if you plan on going to RN with your LPN - Kaplan isnt a good choice- they hopefully will open the bridge next year if they have high enough pass rates- but I know that some schools take a few years to get to that point.

    The program cost $25k

    The enterance exams are free- you first take a critical thinking test. When I took mine we had 25 people taking it and only 2 of us passed.

    Then you take the HESI - which I thought was extremely easy. But I have already taken college English and LPN Math class. It covers reading comprension, vocabulary, and math skills like fractions - military time conversions - percentages - etc. The day I tested 20 people took it - 3 people passed the first time. They give you 2 chances and you can buy the study book for $25. I dont know how they did the 2nd round. A 70% is considered passing.

    They accept students on a 9 pt scale
    4pts for the Hesi results
    1 pt for health care experience such as a CNA credential or MA credential or health care work experience. They do not consider volunteer work. : (

    They also give you 1 pt for each college class you have taken in these catagories:
    English 101 and higher
    Math Algebra (they do not take Math 100B from CSN)
    Biology 189 and higher
    Psycology 101 and higher
    Each will earn 1 pt



    I have been trying to find reviews on this school - but so far I am not finding much- since the LPN program is only 1 year old now.
