  5. Galen Tampa LPN-RN program?
    A&P can be taken at Galen but it probably won't transfer to other schools as of yet, also it is very difficult so I hear. I believe most students who failed in those first 2 quarters did so because...

  9. Galen Tampa LPN-RN program?
    My advice is to stay on task and not get behind. Most of those we've lost are from A&P and/or Micro. I believe we also lost a few from Pharm (very tough) and CPE's. Thankfully I didn't have to take...

    I didn't find the PAX too difficult, but I know they do have a practice booklet if you wanted to do some practice before the real thing. Check and see if any credits transfer, it definitely saves on...

  16. Galen Tampa LPN-RN program?
    I don't think it's that hard really, you just have to have your licence and CPR card and pass the PAX. You also have to be willing to pay the costs, which can be reduced if you transfer credits in.

    Yes, as far as I know it still is 3 terms long and Term 1 is the only one that's offered in the summer. This is why I ultimately decided to go elsewhere, I didn't want to start in Jan of 2011 and not...
