A local private LPN schoolsl here are running close to $30,000. VERY expensive! The State run LPN schools
are around $6,000 BUT they have long waiting lists. To some (me included) the end justifies the means..meaning, I am willing to shell that money out to get into school ASAP with no waiting list, no major test to take, close to home, great NCLEX pass rate (100%) and be done with the schooling, sitting for my boards and passing to then work as a licensed PN. While, those who can't or won't pay the $30K wait and wait and wait just to get in while I am already working.
It is crazy to think that that the class is that expensive but if you think about it, at $30K, with 2500 clinical and classroom insturctional hours its only $12.50 an hour. Of course when you take $30K X 40 students thats one MILLION two hundred thousand dollars!!
