1. Does anyone know the cost to attend a vocational school not affiliated with a community college i have to take the tabe test that cost$50 but was wondering about tuition apposed to a community college because they dont offer full grants or financial aid only a portion.

    I actually found ut this one cost around 13k i dont think i am going to attend this one and look into the community college i am alraedy at i am just double guessing myself because i cant get into rn school until end of 2010 and the lpn course is only 14 months at this same college and dont think my finacial situation can wait until 3 years to make descent money so i am trying to consider weither or not i should ge my lpn first then go back for rn after i am working at a hospital ?

    i think that 13k is pretty stiff...state run schools are not that expensive and some or most of the costs will be covered by loans, grants and scholarships
    is it possible for you to relocate at least temporarily
    the schools in lafayette, alexandria come with very good reccommendations and a high nclex pass rate
    if you cannot get into an rn school for a couple of more years, an lpn license will give you a lot of experience and an income while you are in school
    good luck

    I wish i could relocate for a while but its impossible i have two small children and all my family is here in new orleans i think my path for rn will happen i am applying for the 2010 spring semester to see if i can get in and make my descion from there about lpn school i should get a reply by the summer of 09 i did my first clinical today at a nursing home for my cna course wow was that an eye opener those people do not get the best treatment they deserve. I think i will stick with children in my nursing career. My heart cant take seeing those people like that every day.
