I Need Some Info From Lanier Tech Lpn Students

5johnsons 5johnsons (New) New

I am starting class this winter at lanier tech. I hope to be able to get into the fall 09 program. I would love it if any current or former students could tell me what it was like, what was you gpa and what your score was on you nln. also did you find it hard to find a job after school. I would love to hear from you.:wink2:

I don't know if your questions have been answered yet or not, but I graduated from Lanier Tech a few years ago. I don't remember what I made on the NLN, but it was a 90-something. 93, maybe? I must say that it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Lanier Tech's LPN program is fantastic! The instructors are wonderful! It's hard work, with TONS of time reading and studying, but I swear, the experience is invaluable. I'm in an LPN-RN bridge program now, and let me just say that I'm glad I did LPN first.

It will seem like your whole life is nothing but nursing school. If we weren't in class, we were in clinical. And it seemed like any time other than that was spent studying. You will get so freaking tired of writing care plans, but it will get easier, and you will suddenly realize that you're learning sooooo much from your care plans.

I did not have any problems finding a job after I graduated. I worked as a tech at a nearby hospital while I was in school, and then transitioned from tech to nurse after I passed boards.

I really hope you get into their program. I don't think you will regret it at all!

thank you for answering. so you were able to work while you were in the program. what campus did you attend ?

I attended the main campus in Oakwood. Our class was really small, only 20 students. And our classroom instructors were our clinical instructors as well. So they got to know us on a personal level, and we them. I really liked that. Also, they will go out of their way to help any student who seems to be having trouble.

Sorry, I forgot about the work part. I did work while I was in the program, however, during the last half, I did switch to part time. A lot of the people in my class worked full time all the way through, though, and did just fine. I'm totally anal about my grades, though, and I was fortunate enough to be able to go part time at the end. But, if you do have to work, I know it's possible to do both. Just use whatever time you do have very wisely. :specs:

It looks like I will be traveling from Roswell to Gainesville to be there at 6:30am for 12 hours. Is this what you did? I'm attending the Forsyth campus. How many times do you go to the hospital per week? How long does it take to finish the clinicals?



Specializes in NICU.

That is a long drive! In the first quarter, class m-w then clinicals at the nursing home on thursdays. Since then, its been class m-t and clinicals weds and thurs. You dont finish clinicals til you finish school, its all rolled together.
