I am wondering if anyone knows of any hospitals on Long Island in NY that are offering free or reduced cost LPN programs? I saw one hospital and believe they said they would train you to become a CNA first and then after some time they would train for an LPN but I am looking for different options. I don't want to go to Boces or VEEB or anywhere where tuition is 10k or higher. I looked into suffolk comm college but it is past the application deadlines for summer or fall of 2009 and I don't want to wait a year to start the program and another year to finish. I don't really want to do the CNA training unless I can't find an LPN course to get into quickly...Does anyone know of or has taken an LPN certificate or associates program on Long Island ? :nurse:

You have to apply and take the pax-lpn test....They have one more testing date this month and the program starts in January. You need to do well on the exam which is basic reading, math and a little of each of the sciences physics, bio and chemistry. I also applied to suffok but they are taking forever to respond and I don't know where on the island you are but their program is way out in riverhead and when I called to find out the status of my application I was told they look at pple taking prereqs at suffolk first and they don't let people know till late january which was a waste of my time...try farmingdale...:coollook:

lucky for you there is one starting this fall it is called CNETNURSES, this is the lowest cost lpn program out there it cost exactly $2,300. but your application must be received by january 2010. to fill and application you must pay a $35 application fee. This fee holds your spot to take an entrance exam to be qualified for the program. the program only excepts those that score at least in the 40th percentile of the group that you will be examining with. in other words it is like a SAT and you score and entrance is dependant on how well you did along side all other fellow test takers for that session. Application can be found online via this link. i hope that this is hopefull.
