    yeah akanni said that is what is on the first exam I took a&p already so that shouldn't be a problem but if you continue to read the threads akanni discusses both the 2nd test at orientation and the workforce program where they pay your tuition iin return for 2yrs work

    What kind of work is the workforce program?
  5. by   prospectivestudent
    from what I've read its working for 2yrs as a lpn in a long term care facility . . . . . .they pay your tuition and you work for them for 2 yrs thjats the way I understood it. It doesnt sound so bad but I personally didnt wanna specialize in long term care but they say it is a little difficult getting a job be cause most places want 1-2 years experience so this is a guaranteed job with pay right after you graduate from the program I really dont know all the technicalities about what qualifies you but I think it is something to look into for an entry level position as a lpn. . . .hey you never know!

    Do you think that Veeb will require a laptop, or if we will have to type up paper and such?

    No actually I read it from TRINIANGEL.But AKANNI was very helpful as well. And Personally, I would not opt for a sponsorship b/c they pay rate is lower than the starting salary for a LPN. And I would not want to feel like I am obligated to work some where for 2 years. AKANNI choose that route b/c she has her BA and she does not qualify for financial aid and she didnt want to take a loan for LPN school when she will have to take out a loan for RN school.

    driven, I understand i has my a.s in community health and education and I to do not wanna take out a lpn loan I dont qualify for financial aid and I intend to go for my rn immediately after so its just an option for those who intend to further there education but do not want any ongoing financial debt I am stable enough to pay out of pocket for veeb but if i wanted to go to adelphi afterwards I need another 30,000 so it is something to think about. But thanks on your advice I might have to take less pay and work parttime and in those 2 years earn my rn debt free or take out a not so overwhelming loan but thanks you gave me alot to think about!

    You don't really need a laptop, but it is very beneficial. VEEB classroom grades are all based on testing, but each clinical rotation requires a paper or two, and lets just say some instructors are partial towards typing.

    I'm not exactly sure about the VEEB policy about using laptops during class, but I'm thinking about bringing one now since my handwriting gets sloppy at times and during 2nd semester the notes are dictated at a much faster pace compared to 1st which seemed slow at times.

    And its not like college, where they'll post notes online, everything is dictated.
