i really appreciate any and all information that you and others are able to share.

She used the term waiting list as a possible way to get me to come in and do my testing. I told her I was atleast a year out for starting school. I still don't know if I can justify that kind of $$$ for school. I'd rather just get my LPN and take the long route to get my RN.....

IE what the classes were each semester etc until just the core nursing class were left

That does cut down on the $$$. I am at the end of Block II now. Just a few weeks before finals. There have been ups and downs. Some of them associated with the problems of it being a new program, and some of them I believe you would have anywhere. All in all, I am glad I chose this program. I am almost half way through and my education, which is what is important, I feel has been top quality! I cannot say enough about my instructors. If any of you have ?s, let me know. I am happy to answer as many of them as I can.

I was impressed when I went there and figured that even though it was a new program that their goal was to provide the best education. K was impressing when I spoke with her. Its all about the money why I didn't go there, but I got into the Gateway LPN program for spring so I'll just take a little longer to the RN. With loans I think I'll have about 10,000 in student loans at the end instead of 45,000. Keep us posted and congrats on the program!
