I have been asked by several people if I would be interested in taking the LPN route in order to get into an RN program sooner and am debating this currently. I know that the part time program is 2 years long and I am trying to think if I want to stop my trek towards becoming a RN and do the LPN way so that I can guarantee getting into one sooner. There are so many things that would hold me back from becoming a RN (waitlists, the competitiveness and so on) and I just don't know which would be best for me. Not to mention I still have about 2 or 3 classes I still need to complete as far as pre req's ( I have completed all the co req's needed for most programs and just have to do A&P and Micro) Is anyone currently in the program now? And how has it worked for you all?

I am currently enrolled with "Doodles" at the southfield campus. We're in the full time day program which started in January and ends in December this year (11 months) I'ts actually going really good. I still need pre reqs to apply for an RN program and I got discourged by it seeming that you had to have well and beyond a 4.0 to get in anywhere. Everest is working for me, I went contingent on my job working some weekends, they just started a 2 year part time program which I unfortunately dont have much info to give you. I like the fact that its all Nursing classes, there is no government, economics, ect...although to apply for a bridge program you will need those and more. Only the Southfield and Grand Rapids campus offers the LPN program. The next fulltime program starts in May, September and then January each year. If you have more specific questions feel free to ask.

yes, they have a part-time program here in g.r. it's mostly for individuals who have to work/ or family oriented. the program takes 2 years, and is mon-fri 5:00-10:30 pm. clinicals are agreed upon the individuals in the class what days are best, such as: sat or sun and what times. i was gonna personally opt for this, but i work 2md shift 7-7a, so that would never work! i talked to them yesterday, they called to check on me, and right now they start the part time program again in feb. and the fulltime in may. i might have to do the fulltime option personally now, it's from 8-5pm mon-fri. let me know what you think! :) and yes, depending on some colleges, ur science pre-req's are good anywhere from 5-8yrs. just depends on the school. :)

brittany,

which schools accept 8 years old prereqs??? coz i have only 2 years left before mine expire! i'm totally frustrated by this! :)

hi want2banurse2,

i've got a few qs... (i wish their website was more informing...)

- how long does the application process take? (i've got all my adn prereqs done.)

- do they have an application deadline? i wanna apply for the may prog.

- how much is tuition?

- are they organized

- are the tests straight out of the book- lecture/labs - study guides...

- do you feel they teach quality stuff, or just prepare us for the nclex-pn?

thank you much for helping out!
