Hello everyone! I've decided to go to LVN school (and later onto an LVN-RN bridge program).
I was looking into this school, North Texas Professional Institute, and I've met with the admissions officer and it sounds great for my situation (12 month program, and the entrance test is high school level). The only problem is that the tuition is around 15-17k. They do provide financial assistance (grants, loans).
There's also another school of the say type and I'm told it's 5k (I'll have personally look into it). I think it's Cisco. It's in Abilen. That's the problem. One, I've never been there and don't know what it's like (it looks so baren from google satellite) and it's about 3 hours away. I don't know if I can do that everyday with gas prices. I might as well cough up the 15k.
Any LVN/LPNs out there who went to these schools or other schools of the same type? I'm not interested in taking prereq classes for the programs at community colleges (like El Centro). It's too competitive for me and I can't really wait anymore.
Any suggestions? Advice?
