Rockland Boces LPN Program

  1. Got my acceptance letter for Fall 2010 today. Not sure if I will attend, it all depends on how my other applications go. Anyone else receive a letter, or testing for this program?

    I wanted to know if you cared to share info on your test scores and the admissions process. What was the interview like? I received my interview appointment today and I am very nervous.
    Thank You and Good Luck

    I got a 100 on the English section, and a 97 on Math.. crazy, I know.

    I was kind of nervous for my interview as well but it wasn't really bad. I went into the room and there were 4 administrators there; they asked questions about my working situation and home situation because they wanted to make sure I had the time to commit and be successful in the program. I was in and out of the building in 15 minutes. About 2 weeks later I received a letter saying I had been accepted, along with orientation information for May.

    Good luck to you!

    Well I hope it goes well for you. Did you apply anywhere else or is this the school you want to go to if you are accepted? What is your name / where are you from?

    I've applied to other schools as well. In fact today I too the Teas at Putnam Northern Westchester Boces. The science area was very difficult for me. I also applied to Southern Westchester Boces and I take that test in May. I'm coming from Northern Yonkers and I drive but I'm idealy would like to go to a school near transportation just in case. I have some other schools in mind but I'm applying slowly to ease the damage on my pockets. Are you looking into other schools as well?

    Yeah the application and testing fees are ridiculous. I was interested in Southern Westchester BOCES as well but I didn't apply. May sounds very late for testing, doesn't it? I know I have to decide what school I will be attending by May 21st because that is the orientation for Rockland BOCES and the money you have to pay on that day is non-refundable.

    Hi Stephanieee, Had my interview on Friday
    I felt good after I left the interview. As you said it was relatively short. She said my test scores were good and the timing was good and the fact that I have previous care experience is a plus. Im just a bit worried because she didn't ask for references. Im just curious did she ask for your references. I hope I get in, Ive applied to other schools but this would be the best option so far. Did you make our school choice yet?

    Hi! Yes, I think I'm going to attend this school. When I got my acceptance letter in the mail it had a piece of paper for I believe 3 or 4 personal references, but it said I could just bring it to orientation. Sounds weird, right? Bringing your references to orientation when you've already been accepted.. Oh well, whatever they want lol. It took me about 3 1/2 - 4 weeks to get my acceptance letter even though they told me approximately 2 weeks. Orientation is May 28 so I'm guessing you will be hearing from them very soon!

    Hiii I guess we will be classmates! I just received my acceptance letter. I'm so excited. I also had my interview for Putnam Northern Westchester today but that was a second choice so I know where I'm going. That was the longest two weeks ever!
