Central Tech LPN - Sapulpa

U.S.A. Oklahoma


Specializes in 6 yrs LTC, 1 yr MedSurg, Wound Care.


The time has FINALLY come! I've been waiting years to be able to go to nursing school and have narrowed my choice down to Central Tech in Sapulpa. With a husband, kids, and working, it seems to be the most flexible for what I need.

I have been trying to research, but can't seem to find any recent posts on All Nurses, or the web for that matter. The older posts here are very negative but looking at their pass rates (100% in 2010, '11, and '12), they seem to have gotten their act together.

What I'm looking for is anyone with personal RECENT experience with this school. I'd like to hear anything, good or bad, before taking the leap.

Thank you so much!


P.S. I emailed the school for more information and this is the response I received:

"Our Practical Nursing program is a self-directed program where you would be required to complete 1463 hours of curriculum. This is done in 3 different options. Option 1 would require about 120 per month, Option 2 would require about 96 hours per month, and Option 3 would require about 80 hours per month. Our classroom is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch hour from 11:30 to 12:30. We have instructors who will guide you through your contract of curriculum and clinical. Contracts are usually figured 1-2 months at a time. We also have a lab day to practice those hands-on skills.

Clinical is scheduled when spots in the facilities become available to us. Generally, you will begin clinical after 4 months into the program. Clinical is scheduled in the Sapulpa, Tulsa, Drumright, and Cushing areas.

Financial aid is available from several resources such as FAFSA, Oklahoma Workforce, and Native American Tribes. We do not accept student loans, but we can setup monthly payments to those who do not qualify for financial aid.

Our application is available at www.centraltech.edu or you may pick one up at our campus. It is about 20 pages long and will give you step-by-step instructions on how to apply."

I sent you a PM. Sorry it took so long to respond!!

Did you get into the program? If so, how do you like it? I took the TEAS 5 last month for Central Tech's LPN program and I did very well on it. I'll know if I got accepted sometime next month. I have been trying to find information about the program as far as what days the classes meet but I haven't had any luck. If you have any information, please share!

We just had a new class start this month. Did you get in?

I'm trying to find more information on this schools hours. I saw that they're open Monday through Friday from 8-4 with a lunch in the middle. But do you just go whenever you can during the week? Do you have a set time that you have to go in? All the site is telling me is that it's a self paced program, but I'm a little confused on the entire thing. It appears that you're in class now. How is everything going? Do you enjoy it?

I was previously in Tulsa Community College's RN program, but it was a bit much for me at the time. I just didn't have enough time to spend with my kindergartner. I want to go back to school and get my RN, but figured starting with LPN then doing a bridge program would be the best course of action for me. Is this LPN program really intense or is it somewhat laid back?

You have a set amount of hours you have to be at school each month. You can go any day you choose for as long as you want (as long as the classroom is open) but you have to meet your requirement for that month.

Your clinical days are scheduled each month and you have to go to them on the scheduled days, but other than that it's really flexible.

I have 2 kids, one in 3rd grade one in 7th, so it's been great for me. It's so hard to be a mom, work, & go to school.

Theyre taking applications again in February & classes start in April. You can go by and talk to the secretary, Tiffany. She's a sweet lady and will answer all of your questions.
