No, I'll be coming from Arkadelphia, which is about 30 minutes south of Malvern. I'm still excited!

Y'all will have to keep us posted on what the schedule is like. I plan to begin their January 2017 class, once I have the money saved up to pay for tuition.

I literally just graduated from the LPN school at coto last friday...ask away whatever you want

edit: ill just post some random stuff about the school to start out..

-the dean is a horrible teacher but is awesome at everything else..she will really work with you..she teaches just once a semester one time..so it isn't that big a deal

- our first semester was wednesday and clinical stuff thurs and friday

- 2nd semster for us was hell, it was summer and was like 9 weeks.. 2 days class, 3 days clinical...so much information

- 3rd was a breeze compared to summer... it was wednesday class and thursday and friday clinical

-classes were not that hard..just read the textbook and do questions

- most of the teachers were good, you have one meh one..but she rarely taught

Thank you for the information! I plan to attend in either January 2017 or May 2017. I am in the process of saving to pay my high ass car payment off 2 years early, and save some cash to help pay bills while in school.

I had some issues with transportation so I had to wait until May. Ill be coming from Litte Rock so having 1 vehicle and 5 children and a husband would have been a nightmare :dead: They were kind enough to defer my admission until then. I just got my acceptance letter today. Anyone else starting up in May??

Thanks for the info Gille! I heard they changed the program to where we will be there Monday - Friday. Are you continuing on with the RN program there. And congrats on completing the LPN program, even though the summer may have been rough you made it through :-)

Yes there definitely is a new dean. She seems awesome and very fair. They had the PN and RN students there for orientation together. Someone asked about whether or not the credits will transfer as an RN and I heard from an LPN that just finished the RN program that the RN isn't accredited. Is that true? Do they have BSN completer agreements with other schools? If so do you know which ones?

Any updates to graduates or students enrolled in this program? I recently turned in my test scores and am curious to the entrance process. Thanks in advance!
