I had the same issue!! Took me an hour to figure out! Lol just click on the book icon once they’re in your bookshelf it should automatically begin to download. Same applies if you’re trying to download it to your phone.

Thank you for your response. I’m in the VitalSource Bookshelf. When I click on the big book it just opens it to read. Is there another icon?  We download it from the VitalSource Bookshelf and not Lipcott, correct?  Thanks again for your help ✌🏼

Is anyone in here applying for Spring 2020? I got the invite for the interview on the 20th. Or is there a Spring 2020 thread already? I couldn't find one.

I applied for the advanced placement lvn to rn program. I am working on the answers to my written interview questions now. I must reply by the 29th.  I believe the point system is different for the generic option 

Hello;) I applied for the Rn program and recently got invitation for the interview. It says interview is based on both written and oral communication skills. Will you be able to give any advice for the interview how should i prepare for it? is it more general questions about nursing or group presentations? Thank you in advance and good luck with your school

Hi, 

I recently got accepted into Spring 2020 program and I couldn't be more grateful.I've been feeling really stressed out because Ive been seeing alot of negative reviews about LACONAH . As far as people geting by with C's , the high drop out rate and that some professor arent that great.If anybody is in the process of this program and is experiencing any of this please share your advice. The thing is that I  got another acceptance to another program and I want to make sure I make the right choice .

I believe it comes down to which clinical instructor you are assigned.  Some students breezed through clinicals while others went home traumatized.  Each instructor has different expectations as far as nursing care plans and worksheets.  The first couple weeks it took a lot of us 8 hours to maneuver through their charting system and complete the packet for just one patient...but then again it comes down to the expectations of your clinical instructor. The first few weeks aren’t too bad but then expect to say goodbye to everyone in your life depending on who you are assigned to. 

With this said, the clinical opportunity is unparalleled and you’ll have preference for hire at a lot of places.  Graduates from this school are highly regarded supposedly.

However, this school is not ACEN/CCNE accredited so we do not qualify to work in a VA hospital (unless you get your Masters I believe)...

Where else did you get accepted?  Depending on your other option, I would not go to LACONAH.  Who knows, you might luck out with an easy going clinical instructor and havhe a different experience....But I know we lost 12 people this semester and an instructor from an advanced semester failed half their clinical group last semester...

I think the key is to get through the easiest school possible and just pass the nclex .... you can always learn on your own and through experience. A harder school is not worth the heart attack especially when you’re risking not passing and it’s not even ACEN accredited.

Thank you for replying!! If you don't mind me asking what semester are you in ? I appreaciate all this important feedback . I really want to attend LACONAH because of the clinical experince but it is  not worth risking everything I worked for.Im not saying that I don't work hard because I do, but it is really surprising and upsetting to see so many negative reviews about LACONAH. Friends and family keep telling me to ignore it but its written for a reason.  Did you get lucky and get a reasonable clinical instructor ? Are student stuck with the same  instructor for the two yaers ? Futhermore, I got an acceptance to Antelope Valley College Nursing program . I know a couple people that went there and its accredited. I live in Santa Clarita which is 30-40 minutes away. Its like a regular community college rn program.

If you don't mind me chiming in, I live in the AV and AVC RN is one of the best programs around for your ADN. I know MANY people that went through the AVC program and they loved it and are amazing nurses. None of them seemed unnecessarily stressed through the process. I do know someone that went with LACONAH and while the clinical experience is unmatched, she seemed to have NO LIFE outside of school while she was in the program. I don't think you can go wrong either way, I do think you'd be making a great choice with AVC.

It really just depends on your time management. A lot of the students who are extremely stressed out are the ones that have children, jobs, etc. Not to mention, a lot of them that don't have extra responsibilities tend to leave things until the last minute (or so it seems). My weekly routine is this: 

Monday: prepare for clinical worksheets/concept maps DURING class.* I'll either finish them bout in 2-3 hours that I'm there, or I will finish up the last of it at home. 

Tues: Clinical site. Come home. Study for 3-4 hrs. Take a break. Get back at it until I personally feel confident about the material. 

Wed: Repeat.

Thurs-Sun: Because I have my own schedule of things, more than likely I'm studying something behind or ahead of the school's schedule. As long as I follow my set schedule, I am almost always "ahead" of the game and prepared for my exams. I pretty much will break down each lecture into halves or thirds depending on how much info is on the lecture powerpoint. So if I split it into thirds, that's three days that I spend studying the material to make sure I fully understand it. Again, this is all dependent on how long it takes you to study. Each individual is different as you may know. It may take you a day to understand Maternal information where as myself, it took 4 days.  

*During lecture, instructors are mainly reading off the slides (which you can do at home). Rarely do they ever say "you don't need to know this" and even if they do, you can follow along to the recordings that many of your fellow students will have. 

Some instructors do in fact have more expectations from others but you can either look at that negatively or you can look at that as a positive. Entirely up to you. Where some might be able to slack off, others may just end up being overly prepared (which isn't a bad thing). 

Wish you the best of luck and just remember, no matter where you go... you will be a great nurse so long as you put your maximum effort in!
