Anyone going to Willow Street this year?

  1. 0 I just got accepted into LCCTC Willow Street's LPN program! I have to go to the orientation/group interview thing later this month, but I'd like to start in Jan.

    Anyone else here attending this school? I'd love to meet some awesome LPNs-to-be, even if we won't be in the same class. I have a feeling that , since I'm traveling all the way from Harrisburg, that I won't know anyone.

    Hope to hear from you soon!

    I'm not sure yet. Jan is day, but because of work and living so far away (Harrisburg) I think I'd like to start evenings in March. I'm calling to reserve my space tomorrow! Whch did you attend? How'd you like it?

    I attended the evening program. It was the only option for me as I had to continue working. Plus I had heard that you got better (more) hands on clinical experience in the evening program vs. day program. It was tougher than I thought it would be, but certainly well worth it when you receive your diploma! Good luck to you!

    I'm thinking about entering the LPN program at LCCTC and would love to hear from anyone who is going/has gone and what you thought of it. Were you in the day or evening program? Did you have to wear uniforms every day of class or just for clinicals?

    I was in the evening program. Yes you have to wear uniforms for class and clinicals. From what I hear, the evening program is better than the day program - there's a little more breathing room - ie: it's fast paced, but not as much as days; and there seems to be more clinical time. I know the students who come to my facility (on days) are oftentimes leaving after half a day d/t having to be checked off on something or for other reasons. Overall, I thought it was a good program. After reading posts on here, they teach you alot compared to other programs. Obviously you have to do what is best for you, but I'd recommend the evening class.

    I know this is late, but just in case someone comes across this page, YES the LCCTC is approved by the PA BON. It's on their website:

    http://www.lcctc.org

    They have a printable brochure with all the info...

    Rich,

    I have applied for the May program. There is a brochure on their website. You print out your application and mail it them with a $55 app fee. I have not taken the entrance exam yet. I will take it March 17th.their website is lcctc.org. Look under adult education.
    When you mail your app you have to also request that your transcripts be sent there. They will not call you to schedule you for the entrance exam(which is the TEAS test) until they have all your transcripts. Hope this helps!
