I’m looking into the LPN program at Gateway CC. I see from other posts there is a morning and an afternoon schedule. Is the program every day of the week? Can any Gateway LPN students or grads tell me more about your schedule?

Thanks in advance!

I had a nursing advisement appointment today and both the day and evening classes are on an 18 month waiting list for the LPN program...

Yikes—so it sounds like the wait has gotten longer! Are you currently on the waiting list?

I hope to get my application in by the end of the summer...hopefully the wait won’t be extended even further by then.

I just finished Block 1 of the Evening Cohort LPN program. The schedule for evening is Mondays and Wednesdays 5pm to 9pm. Plus a 12ish hour clinical day each week on either Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays...I was in the Saturday clinical rotation. The clinical day is from 5:45am until 5pm.

So far the program has been wonderful. Keep in mind that not all clinical sites are created equally for the LPN program. I lucked out and got a site that allowed us students to do a lot of hands on medication passes, foley insertions, and tube feedings. Some of my fellow classmates that went to different sites, got very little opportunities to do actually nurse work and so mostly were there as glorified CNAs. When you get in, my biggest advice is to study the power points and fill in any supplementary worksheets given as you do. Practice NCLEX style questions as much as you can because it'll help in the long run to retain the information.

Anybody take the placement PN test for South Western Boces? Anybody know the passing score and or percentile needed to get accepted? I received my test scores but it doesn’t say if I was accepted, on a waitlist or denied. I’m literally going crazy if anyone knows I would greatly appreciate any feedback. Good luck to you all. 

Thanks in advance.
