Does anyone attend Career Training Solutions in Fredericksburg?

  1. 0 I'm looking for students that have attended or currently attend Career Training Solutions. I saw some posts from a few years ago, but nothing recent. Can you please tell me what the program is like? What the schedule is? What the time frame is for graduation? Where the clinicals are? I'm looking to hear about either LPN or RN.

    Thanks!

    I just graduated from Career Training Solutions RN program. I also attended CTS for LPN. I will tell you this: The Instructors are very knowledgable and professional. The amount of clinical sites that you will get a chance to work in is better than any around. Yes, it is expensive, but they do financing, student loans and grants. They will also not change their requirements several times while you are on a waiting list to get in like Germanna Community College did to me. BTW, there isn't really a waiting list. Also, the programs are tough, like any nursing school, however the instructors will work with you if you show an effort and willingness to learn. And, their NCLEX pass rate is one of the best in the area. And, they include an NCLEX review at the end of the program, most Nursing Schools make you do that on your own. So yeah it's expensive, but the results are proven.

    I haven't had any issues yet. It takes a little while to become accredited. The administrators are working very hard to get the final approval through. Several of us are moving on to get Bachelors degrees and we haven't had any issues yet.

    No offense to anyone who has been to CTS - I'm sure the program is great. Just to give some perspective, the 2009 NCLEX pass rates were nearly identical to Germanna CC (Virginia Board of Nursing Education Programs), while Germanna costs about $30,000 less.

    Germmana (sorry dont know how to spell it and im typing on my phone) also takes about 3 years maybe more considering all the prerequisites and tthe waiting period u maybe given based on priority and the fact it only takes in during fall and the applixations are due months before so economically your loosing at least 2 years nurse salary which would add up to the same amount I feel like.. I know what ur saying though.

    Good point. I don't really think about the length of the programs.

    Where are you pursuing your BSN? I will be graduating grom CTS shortly; and I am concerned that I won't be able to transfer the credits toward my BSN.

    The credits at cts are not transferable anywhere. They are not regionally accredited.but you can still do a rn to bsn program.but you will have to retake all the book work classes.

    I am moving very soon to the area and I was pursuing my LPN program elsewhere, but now that I have been looking at other LPN Programs in Virginia Ive realized that the price differences are crazy, where im frm (illinois) the average lpn progra is anywhere from 20k-32k, and in virginia i have found some for as low as 9k thats crazy, but as far as quality i would hope they are just as great. I talked to an admissions person from Career training slutions and it sounded promising, but i didnt find it in the current nclex pass rates, and it is ot accredited? I was also interested in Standard Healthcare Inc because of their 100% pass rate, but I saw mixed reviews, i kno cts offers finacial aid, so did it help alotwith tuition? and Would anyone reccomend either from the two? Thanksss
