Does it matter what LPN program you choose?


Hi guys,

Im new here. I had a question about LPN programs. I am looking at an adult center LPN program, and I am not sure if I should try to get int a Community College instead. This program is through the Board of Ed, so it's legit, but does it matter if it's not through a College? Im new to the world of nursing and want to make sure that I have all my ducks in a row. Any advice will do. Oh, a little about me... I have an AA in liberal arts and a B.A in Studio Art. Been a photographer for most of my life, but am looking for a career change. Nursing has always been something I secretly wanted to do. Im a people person and think caring for others is one of the most admirable careers one could do.


Any advice would help.




Here in FL, there is a list of approved and accredited programs, but I still called the colleges that offer the LPN-RN track and the LPN-BSN track to make sure I can apply to their programs after I become eligible to sit for the NCLEX-PN and/or hold my LPN license and that it didn't matter which school I graduated from.

So to answer your question, it probably doesn't matter if you attended a state college, private college, or Adult education center, just as long as it is state approved or accredited. But it is always safe to do your homework and call around. =)

By the way, some schools may convince you otherwise, but do your homework! One school told me that I was making a mistake because I would only be able to go to one school after getting my LPN license, and that of course isn't true! Just to give you a glimpse of what it may be like when you apply to several schools and choose one over the other. =)
