I have a choice between two schools to attend for my LPN.
School #1 is known for their great LPN program, and it's only about 10 minutes away from me. Their NCLEX pass rate is 100%, and they just added an RN program a year ago, so I could hopefully do the LPN-RN bridge program there after completing the LPN program. The downside is, it's about $16,000, and it's 2 years long (4 semesters) as opposed to 1 year.
School #2 has a very good reputation, and is also known for having a great program. It only costs $6,000 for the whole program, and it's only 11 months long. No RN program there, though. It's about 25 minutes from me, but it's in Mass (I live in NH, right on the border....the good thing is, I'd be making a lot more in Mass).
So, my question is....which would YOU choose and why?
