    MCI is ECPI. It is 39,000 for RN and 31,000 for LPN. I am doing the evening RN program. Starting Aug 30th. I have to do a chem w/a lab since my chem from community college was not a lab chem. So I start the chem tonight and will begin the RN classes in Aug.

    It is very pricey. And I am all about getting all the grants and scholarships I can to cover whatever the PELL and government loans don't. I am super excited!!

    I'm going to the Virginia Beach Campus for LPN program..I was wondering because it's $32.5k here for the LPN program...guess I ought to check ab out the difference in price in campuses..

    It's already been a struggle to find the $32.5k in funds..not sure how I would do another $6.5k..how many pre-req's are you taking? How long are they each?

    yeah, i have noticed that the ECPI locations all have different prices. someone told me that it is different for each person. not sure about that.

    i have to have chem, computer, and algebra. all of which i have already had. but of course have to re-do. whatever. as long as it gets me there. all to gether, is is about 8 weeks i think. some people took one at a time. some did 2 and then one. I am doing chem and then the other 2 together.

    my bff is at the northern va location doing LPN. she has plenty of complaints about it. but she will graduate in about 6 weeks. and so excited.

    in my class, there are 4 LPN's that all WENT to ECPI!! LOL. and NONE of the credits transfer. they have to pay the same amount as the rest of us. sucks.

    Those of you who are taking chemistry, are you taking it because you've never had it, or is it a requirement regardless? I took chem in high school, 13 years ago! So, I'm not sure if I would have to take it again if I end up at MCI.

    nope, the computer, math and chem classes do not transfer at all. no matter where, when, or what grade you go.

    $34,000 is insane to me, still! good gracious ..

    about SRMC -

    i need to have: two semesters of english, a math course, microbiology, anatomy and physiology (2 semesters), nutrition, speech, and medical terminology i think?

    all the prerequisites are listed on srmconline.com's website under the nursing program info., i think.

    the program will be challenging, of course, like any nursing program, but i have a good feeling about it and i think the instructors are very good.

    we'll see..

    i start monday! ahhh! so scared!
    SRMC is a waste of time 1 1/2 years to 2 years to get pre-reqs just to enter program and that if your even accepted out of all the applicants and its GPA based. Once you get accepted the tuition is roughly 15,ooo with all extras in it, MCI is more yes but pre-reqs for them is 10 weeks and if you get accepted you get in quickly. You pay about 40,000 but it soooo worth it. Just think about it by the time you finish pre-reqs at srmc you are graduating as an RN at MCI, work faster make money faster dont have time to waste. I start in Aug I am really pumped up about it and I researched every school first b4 i enrolled. More money yes better outcome from MCI, faster (as long as I dont screw up) and if you talk to people around about the best nurses they all say MCI so i guess you get what you pay for but if you have 4-5 years waste go ahead

    To aabad0717, do u know what your class hours will be after u finish your pre reqs? also what are your class hours for the pre reqs and how much do you have to pay the school each month? Thanks

    I am doing the day program so m-f 8am to 430pm my monthly payment is 175.00 a month guess everyone is different depends in their financial aid some students in my pre reqs pay only 100.00 but you have to pay for your precreqs at 200.00 each up front but there us only 3 of them. Good luck

    i am in the evening class. m-thur 5:30-10:30. i know that that will change later on and it will be m-f and then weekends for clinicals.

    yep about everything the last person said. seems to be a lot "easier" to get in. pay more, but get it done!! the pre-req classes are the same times as the nursing classes. you can choose either day or evening. the hours do not change from that.
