Hi everyone. Iam looking into the kaplan college in sacramento lvn program that starts in october. I went for the tour already and passed the first test. What i was wondering was does anyone have any thoughts on this school? are you currently attending this class? how are the teachers what type of finacial aid do they have? any info would be greatly appreciated. also i was looking at csi college in vacaville anything on that school would be helpful too.

lol.. I'm going tomorrow too to retake the test. i passed the first time but i want to bring my math score up a bit.. Oh yeah no I changed my mind about csi. after all the financial aid and my grants i still needed 14k to go there. I almost laughed in the ladies face. are you nervous? i originally took mine 7/22. i dislocated my wrist about a week ago. hopefully it wont hinder me from getting a good score. are you from sacramento?

lol. Have you checked the evolve website? so far i figured the average score is 78% i passed with a 73%. my "advisor" said that they will be testing till the 2nd week of august. i hope i get in. i've been studying my but off with that math. my scores we're really good but that math brought it down soooo much. hehe. i started rushing because everyone started to leave and i felt like a loser. tomorrow... im not going to care. im taking my sweet time!!!! lol. it sucks that they wont let you just take the section you need to take again and not make you do it all... i wonder if it is the same test..do you know? oh and i think i know who you are...i think we spoke going to the bathroom???

Yup I live on base!!! see i gave into peer pressure and rushed hehehe. I know what you mean i dont want to go to a jc for all that time and stuff either. Yeah im 24.. my mom says one day im going to like looking so young. that day has not come yet!! i figured people were going to have trouble with the vocab if they didn't have med experience or a&p done with. im hoping it is the same test because the few questions i missed in the vocab test i have memorized!!!! Do you what they use for financial aid? i wonder how many people have taken the test...

lmao. yeah ALL the time girl. did you see how much western career college charge? 40k i was like seriously!!! i wish there was more schools for nursing. everywhere you go its schools for criminal justice,cosmetology and they are like dirt cheap!!! 26k isn't that much i guess.. especially sine you're in class for a couple of semesters you might be able to get 20k in loans then hustle the other 6. yeaah im married. lol. it will be a year on the 23of aug. he is in the military but he is getting deployed in jan so if i do get in i'll just have to practicing my skills at home on the dog.. lol!!
