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.
