    Hi Nurse Robin

    I finally called and wouldn't you know it, it's full. The next opening isn't until August of 2004. I then checked with many of the local colleges, but they only have a 4 year program. (That must be an RN program??) Now I don't know what I'm going to do. I wouldn't think they could teach something like this online? Don't you need hands on?

    Thanks Nurse Robin,

    Thanks for all your wonderful information. I believe I am leaning towards the LPN program. I need to call them and ask some questions. They had a 100% placement for cna's, but only 58% for LPN's. I'm not sure why. Do you know if there are very many job opportunities for LPNs in Kansas?

    Hi Robin,

    I found a technical college here in Wichita. There is a CNA Program starting in December, and an LPN Program starting in January. I have the brochures, but haven't actually talked with the school.

    Is there a very big pay difference and duties difference between the two? How do you like working as an LPN? Do you like working where your at, or do you wish you had worked at a hospitol? Please tell me what your definition on Lots of Homework is! I need to be careful not to bite off more than I can chew, then get discouraged and quit.

    Hi everyone! I need your advice.

    My kids are finally grown up enough I can now focus more on what I want to do. I've alway wanted to be a nurse, but since I'm 40 and the cost factor, I think its to late. Becoming a CNA might be a consideration, but having trouble finding information for the Wichita Area. Anybody know where I can go to get info?
