    thanks for your information linda but i gave you a wrong city. i meant to say suwanee, ga. do you know any colleges in that area that offers lpn to rn program? and are there any hospitals or nursing homes that are hiring lpns?

    I live in the Suwanee area. I am in the second semester of nursing school at North Georgia College and State University and absolutely love it. I think they have a LPN to RN program (I'm in the ASN program). Living in Suwanee you would also be within an easy drive to Georgia Perimeter College. I personally would never choose to drive to downtown Atlanta just because I hate fighting traffic, but I have plenty of friends who don't mind that go to Georgia State, Mercer, and Emory. Suwanee is a very central location and you would have plenty of choices. Good luck!

    i haven't forgotten you. i have been tryng to access some sites to get you some info. i haven't had much luck. i'm beginning to wonder if the current weather has something to do with the problem. i've not been able to bring up the pages. i will keep trying.

    I think you should try Gwinnett Medical Hospital. They hire LPN's and its about 15 - 20min drive from Suwanee, also try georgia perimeter college - lawrencville which is about 15-20min drive from from Suwanee. I'm a nursing student at Georgia perimeter college - l'ville. I've done my clinicals at Gwinnett Medical Hospital pluse I work part time in Suwanee. If you have any questions do not hesitate to ask!

    Does Swanee have a county hospital or a hospital that has good benefits? Im planning to move to Suwanee soon and have never been there and need info. Thanks so much.
