LPN programs in CT or NY?

U.S.A. Connecticut

Published

Hello everyone!

I am a male looking for information on schools in CT (primarily) or in nearby NY that offer LPN programs. I am currently working a night shift position watching over people with psychological issues and addiction and have found that my true calling is to help people. I understand that New Britain Tech offers a program for 18k a year which is out of my price range. Would anyone currently in a program or a gradute of a CT or nearby program please reply with information on school locations and admission requirements? The idea that in a year I can have an LPN degree is very exciting and I am ready to get to work. Is it true that male nurses are highly sought after these days? I fear that I may have missed some application deadlines for some programs, but any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Tommy,

I start school Monday for a LPN program in Connecticut. It is through a vocational school that is state run. Go to http://www.cttech.org This is for all the schools in Connecticut that are state run. I will be attending EC Goodwin in New Britain, but I will tell you that they won't start another program until September 2005. Good luck, Nancy

I attended New England Tech. I looked into the state programs, but the waiting list is long, and they only accept the top scores on the entrance exam. It is a lot of money, but it's a tax write off, and you can apply for a government loan that won't start until 6 months after graduation. And CT pays LPN's very well, so it might be worth it for you.

At least when I took it, it wasn't so bad. They did give me a practice exam and I had to study up on my math skills (hadn't been in school for 10 years), but then I took the actual exam and did fine. See if they are still offering the practice exam. Then study up on whatever you need to. I didn't think it was too bad.

Yes, theyn are offering a practice exam I didn't know if it was like the NET test w/ a lot of reading comp...My math are excellent, BUT science and reading comprehension aren't my strong points....if you could compare this test to another type what would you say, it's been 15 years for me...I'm a little rusty but pretty smart over all, I just don't know if they try top scare you w/ this or what..I acn't imagine it being all that difficult, they offer many courses.Weather or not all courses need this testing to get in is another story.Thanks

TRY NETI, it's $19,600 now & you can get student loan up to 75% of the tuition...then they give a pmt. plan for the balance...chances of the votech school openings is slim, I'm accepted to neti night division (new starting 9-02), make sure your test results are excellent..if you PASS you qualify for the day...but the 24 night openings are strickly for the highest scores, this made me nervous to hear & the test was hard(haven't been in school for 16 years)..but hopefully it will work...I'm probably going to stay w/ NETI (night) over VINAL tech night program..even if I'm accepted, due to family obligations $ we don't have child care. The program is 21 months& from 5pm to 10pm...give it a try....they still have openings, was the first on the list yippy!!!! GOOD LUCK
