LPN programs

  1. Hello everyone!
    I hope you all don't mind me posting here. I have a question that I can't seem to find an answer to. Do any of you know of any LPN schools around Tampa/Zephyrhills? I just moved here about 2 months ago and want to go through an LPN program, but can't find one close to me. I live in Zephyrhills, but wouldn't mind traveling a short distance. If anyone has any ideas, I would greatly appreciate it!!! Thanks in advance.

    Hi, also, a drive might be worth it. I applied to PTEC, and was told 2 days later a start date of Jan 8th. NOW, the difference is my timing. They have filled their classes through May, but if lots of people like ME applied, they will be giving up their spots if they get into an RN program, which I'm 95% sure I'll be starting this spring. I'm on the alternate list at SPC for their RN program. Might be worth researching since erwin puts you on a lottery system. You have no control if you get in or not....I HATE THAT! good luck keep us updated.

    I had planned on going to Erwin but chose another school that was closer to my home in Saint Petersburg. I was impressed with Erwin's process and looked forward to going there. I hear it is a good school. They go on lottery system but if you are not chosen, you will be put on the back up list. The class was in August, I was #21 on the back up list and was called for January's class. Over all, it was not a long wait. Good luck to you.
