    $200 50 (# of people tested per day) = roughly about ONLY $10,000 PER DAY!!! LOL If I were them, I'll still be testing too! Hahaha. Testing=easy money-maker.
    One thing you will learn is that VEEB is very money hungry! Just one of the many things we have to deal with at VEEB, but the bottom line is we deal with it because we want our Nursing Degree's. They probably know this, and take advantage of us, but oh well.

    Good luck everyone, I hope you get your (POSITIVE) results fast! They said the same thing last year ( I am a current student) about "being a month behind in grading". The bottom line is you will get your results when you get them. It seems like there is no rhyme or reason to the way they do things. All that being said, I will say that VEEB is an EXCELLENT school, I have learned SO MUCH in such a short period of time. Its a full time job, but its well worth it. If you look about 50 pages back in this thread you will see all of us from last year anxiously awaiting our results, It might make you feel better to see we all went thru what youre going through now!

    Hi i took the entrance exam for veeb it was pretty easy common sense type of test. However i recently found out i am pregnant if i get into veeb i will start in September but my due date is October. Does anyone know of anyone that is pregnant and is in veeb? will I be able to miss a week or a few days I plan on giving birth and going right to school I know it sounds nuts but i really have no other choice. I cant afford to wait another year to become a nurse.
    First of all congratulations on the pregnancy!
    Second, only YOU know what is right for you, and what you are capable of. I will say, being a student at VEEB, i really could not imagine missing a week of school. They cover SO MUCH material in such a short period of time. ALso, you dont know what kind of a birth you will end up having (God forbid any complications) and how long it might take you to heal, etc. Also, do you really want to give birth and then immediately be away from your baby? These are all things you have to consider. No one can make that decision for you. I am NOT trying to discourage you, because there have been people who went to VEEB and gave birth during the program, and still finished the program. If I were you, I would wait to see if you got in, and then go speak to Mrs. "I", the counselor. She is very nice and can help steer you in the direction that is right for you.
    If it turns out that VEEB is not right for you at that time, I UNDERSTAND you dont want to wait another year to get your Nursing career started. May I suggest checking out Western Suffolk Boces? They have an LPN program that starts in March. That might be a better choice for you, if you want to recover from giving birth in October, and into some sort of a routine.
    Whatever you do, Don't get discouraged! It will happen for you if you have the drive! Let us know how everything turns out and if you have any more questions, we are here!

    My advice is to pick up an application as early as possible, so you get an early test date. The school runs on a first-come-first-served basis. I know people who actually passed the exam, but because they had a later test date, were not able to enroll because all the spots were either taken by others who had passed, or reserved for people inthe bridge program (which i personally think is ridiculous- no offense to those in the bridge program, but it is obviously just a way for the school to milk money out of people...but thats a whole 'nother topic!) Anyways, the point is, if you want to go to VEEB, the earlier your test date is, the better chance you have of getting a spot. Good luck!

    You have to figure out what will be the best thing for YOU, and whats going on in your life. All i can tell you is, VEEB is no joke! You have to devote ALOT of time for studying. VEEB is the focus of my life and beleive me, when there is drama going on in your life (like everyone has, to some extent), it is going to affect your grades. If you were planning on relocating anyway, then thats a different story. Make sure they dont charge more for "out of state" students, because they may not consider you a resident until you have lived there for a certain amount of time. (I'm not positive about that, but i know thats how colleges look at it). Good luck in your search!

    Actually VEEB is $12,000 for Nassau County residents....its $12,500 for those not living in nassau county. I'm not saying this to discourage you from VEEB, because VEEB is worth the $$$, in my opinion. What is the name of the LPN school you were looking at in MD? Maybe you could make a list of pros and cons? If it were me, I would probably want to try and find a way to stay in NY. I dont know if I would want to move out of state for an LPN program, but that is just me. If you do decide to go with VEEB, there are plenty of people on this site who can answer your questions and help you along your journey. Welcome!

    I can't understand why are they splitting us up again for the second section. And why would they just call you and say "don't come to take the final....or don't come for the second section". I think thats a bit rude.
    What do you mean? Did i miss something?

    Very stressed about tomorrow's Pharmacology test! I went to the tutoring this afternoon, and all I got out of it was the teacher making me feel like I was stupid for asking questions.

    Ok...did anyone else get freaked out today when hearing we should be studying about 5 HOURS A NIGHT??? I dont know about the rest of you, but that is pretty much impossible for me since I work full time. I think the maximum I would be able to study and read in the evenings would be about 3 hours. I hope I can still do well! Is anyone else here going to have trouble finding 5 hours a night to study? I hope I'm NOT the only one! Ok, now I'm getting off the computer to go study science before i have to be at work at 3:00!
