    [font='comic sans ms']
    [font='comic sans ms']i wish i could have got into ivy tech in time, this way i would not have to worry about transferring credits and i could go right into the rn program. one of my girlfriends graduated from ivy tech in either hammond or gary w/ an lpn diploma. she now works @ st. anthony crown point. i have the same idea most of you have. lpn to asn, rn & then a bachelors of science in nursing. i want to work in er or ccu. yes, waiting lists are very long. this is why i am considering @ a proprietary school. do u know of anyone who attended the lnp nursing program @ brown mackie college or olympia college? if so, can u give me any feedback on the training and program? they are both accredited, although their credits do not transfer over, and both start in september. i have to decide which one i plan to attend, both schools have accepted me and i did pass the compass & psb entrance exams @ olympia. what would u suggest, the sooner i start school the better! but reputation & training is extremely important!

    If you are still considering Brown Mackie I would strongly advise against it. I too was thinking at going there because I could start the LPN program right away but after hearing and reading so many bad things I have decided against it. You should look at the thread "looking for brown mackie students from merriville indiana" One of the repliers graduated from there and it sounds like she wasn't impressed. Also, the tuition is outrageous!!!
