LPN Program at Lincoln Tech

  1. Hello everyone. I'll be starting a LPN program at Lincoln Tech at the Paramus location in June. I was wondering if there is any advice that someone can give me on what I can do to prepare myself before I start my program. Thanks!!!

    Stay focused and be flexible is the best advice I can give, I attend the Edison Campus and I am in my final quarter. It has been a bumpy road but a well worth it one. Be prepared to do a lot of studying on your own and make a couple of friends. My study buddies are great and very encouraging. A great at home support system never hurt either (lol). It has been a long year but a great and rewarding one. I have met excellent friends and future nurses and had great experiences in class and clinical. Good luck to you on your journey.

    I am just about to finish the first quarter of this program. My last final is tomorrow. You will need to pay attention in class. Read every night. They will tell you about evolve for your text books, USE IT! Do not fall into the drama. If you have ***TOS--Please do not post names of individuals*** for A&P you will love her, she is very animated and she will go over stuff quickly but she is willing to help. Funds is a hard class, you need to read the chapter at least twice. ***TOS--Please do not post names of individuals*** is a great teacher and she will answer all of your questions. Stay alert, do not use your phone in class other then recording lectures and you will do fine! I will be in quarter 2, feel free to find me and ask questions! Good luck and see you next week!

    P.S. Make sure you are always in uniform, they check shoes and socks frequently and you cant wear a jacket or anything while in class. So keep aware, ***TOS--Please do not post names of individuals*** will send you home!!
