    Good Luck with Riverside. I took am going to Riverside Lpn to RN program and I must say that I am very happy so far with the clinicals and what I have learned. There definetly is an advantage to attending a hospital based program. I have seen MCI students come in and waiting around for their instructor ( I was told the instructor is usually late). I am not knocking MCI because you have to do whatever works for you! However I am glad that my total for the RN bridge program will cost roughly $9000.00 instead of over $30,000.

    So with all that being said keep an open mind and do what is going to work for you!!

    I'm a current RN student in Richmond. May be moving to the Newport News/Va Beach area and transferring. Can anyone tell me anything about the clinical experience there (sites, etc)? All we seem to be able to get is nursing home facilities. Would really appreciate any information. Thanks

    What ever you do please do not go to ECPI at all. First off they are expensive as hell. You will be force to pay the school one hundred dollars month to the school. Which they claim goes into your account. Which you can not even access the acount. So no ones knows what the money is being used for. Two you have to pay for your own tutoring if you need it. I was going for the LPN class and i had to take a math class before i even start the course. And my advisor had told me that if i get a c or better i will be able to start in Sept of 2011. Well when i got my grade, she then said that i needed to get an B or better. That is not what she had told me. Then you have to pay for the LPN or RN test. And i had a friend who was in the RN program and she could not even passed the test to be a RN and she was on the honor roll. If you are really thinking bout going to school for nursing, please look into Riverside School for health.. They cost a lot cheaper. I think it is it is about eleven thousand while ECPI was clost to thirty thousand. Please do your research before you decide on a school..... I hope i help you some.
