My friend is looking at attending an LPN school soon and she found out about CMK's LPN program. The cost of tuition is around $15,000 and the program is for 10 months.

CMK also has an agreement with Saint Xavier University to accept CMK's classes for their LPN-BSN program.

Does anyone have any more info on this school?

Edit: Can a staff member please move the thread to the IL program discussion forum? Thank you.

Thank you. The lady left me a voice mail saying the program cost $15,000 and you need to leave a $2,000 deposit before the class starts. You pay the remaining balance with 10 payments of $1,300. They don't offer any finalcial aid at this time.

Ok - here is the listing for approved LPN programs in the state of IL and yes, CMK is listed:

State of Illinois, Illinois Center for Nursing - Education Opportunities

Here are the graduation rates for LPN programs in IL:

And here are the pass rates for nursing programs in IL:

Apparently, CMK is a new program in 2009.

Personally, if you are going to spend $15,000, I would just get an RN. However, if the waiting times are lengthy then plan to do the LPN and go STRAIGHT into an RN program.

i went to cna class at cmk and it was great. now i'm planning to enroll in their lpn program in january 8 2011 in westmont campus. in my case, the good thing is that the classes will be held only on weekends :)

the new thing is that now they have another more prerequirement - pharmacology course...it costs $700, and the class will be in october for 5 saturdays. terminology is also $700, and anatomy $1000. they accept transcripts from other schools but for people who don't have time to waste in community colleges, it's better to finish these 3 subjects in cmk 'cause you can finish all that in less than 3 months.

clinicals on cna course was nice, teachers were ok. clinicals are in meadowbrook manor nursing home in bolingbrook.
