Hi! Sorry I don't know about any 1 yr programs near Detroit. Could you please post the name of the 1 yr program with no prereqs in Ohio? I didn't know about that one.
Thanks a lot! Good Luck!:spin:

st clair county community college is about 40 minutes from detroit (detroit it huge!!! and i don't know where exactly you're coming from). i went there and had a friend who drove from warren to go there.
there are no "prereqs", you are able to take the a&p and psych in your first semester (that's what i did). had no trouble. there program runs from january to december. it's tough, but doable.
it's a straight shot up 94 to get to st. clair. i wish you luck. i believe oakland community college and schoolcraft also have LPN, as does wayne county community, but i don't know if they require prereqs
good luck in whatever you choose. st. clair has an excellent reputation around here!

Wayne County Community College does "not" have an LPN program, just the Associate degree RN program and it does require pre req's. There are a few LPN schools in the Toledo area that seem to be nice. I don't think there is a wait list either, but I could be wrong on that one. I called a few them before I got in to WCCCD's nursing program. Good luck.

Ill stick it out in college but I am just wondering do the 1 year LPN programs that these establishments are offering allow you to move up to RN since there are no pre reqs?

Hi, i went through a one year program through latoya health ed and training center in saginaw, thats roughly 2 hours from detroit. Its a brand new program , its one year and it costs 10,000 dollars for the whole duration.
It was an intensive program and personaly i had a good experience but im not sure i would do it again if i was to do it all over.
Im going to start my Rn in spring since i had a lot of college credit i was going through saginaw valley and it was takint too d,,,, long

Sandey- you should check around there are some schools that have lpn to RN programs. I know Monroe community college has it...maybe something around you might as well. Good luck!

Sandey37, Your experience with Latoya health ed was ok? I have prereqs for ADN but did not get in. I am looking to do my LPN then pursuing RN due to current time constraints
Any info would be helpful.
