    Hey EMS Chick,

    I wouldn't worry too much about the entrance exam. To me it was mostly basic high school stuff. For example in the reading section you had to read a passage and answer some questions. I didn't find the material too dificult. Try visiting a few GED prep websites to brush up on some stuff that you might have forgotten, but overall I wouldn't fret too much.

    hi there! this message is for those who have already been in the program since feb. 2009. i am currently looking into the evening lpn program at bcit and am extremely excited at the prospect, however, i have several reservations and am hoping that you gals can help how much homework is a lot (say, in a manner of hours?), how many saturdays do you have to attend?, and most importantly, what is the attendance policy? i have three kids (15 1/2, 12, and 1 yr), my husband will be home with them but am worried about emergencies!! i haven't even taken the entrance exam yet, because i'm fretful of the commitment, but am soooooo eager to start!!
    thanks again

    I am in the day class but I am pretty sure that the attendance requirements are the same. You get exactly 8 days. Even a lateness after that and you will be automatically kicked out of the program. They are very strict about the attendance policy. As for homework, like I said b/f I'm in the day class so it may be different, but we don't get much homework. It really is no time to get it done if we did. We have 1-2 tests every day. Some days maybe even 3 tests. It is a lot of work. But myself and many of my other class mates are married/single with kids and we are all making it work. Short term sacrifice for a long term gain.
