New LPN program in Brandon,Fl?

  1. Hey there,

    Has anyone living in the Tampa Bay area hear of a Brandon Regional Hospital sponsored LPN porgram through Center for Allied Health & Nursing Education? I was checking for LPN schools online and it came up. Their website is really limited. Any info?

    i just checked them out myself .... rec'd a call from one of the advisers there. they are a private school and are only affiliated with brandon hospital as being one of their clinical locations. kind of deceiving .... thought it was a hospital nursing school (of years past). it's just another private nursing school. expensive like galen at around 14K for tuition. the adviser seemed nice enough, very helpful. they really work with you too if you don't qualify for financial aid and DO NOT conduct a credit check on you -- so if you don't qualify and have lousy credit, you can still get a loan from the school.

    if i find out anything further, i'll update this post. still in the process of checking them out further.

    I went there myself. According to the advisor, the school is going to qualify for financial aid assistance to be given to students only after it being open one year. That should be around september, according to him. So it may be worth waiting, because 14K is a lot to give back even if it's on installments.
