I am about to start an LNA class and would like to enter an LPN class in the fall of 2004 (wish I could start sooner, but all the programs are fall entry only).
I am planning to apply to St Josephs School of Practical Nursing in Nashua and also Northern Essex CC in Haverhill, Ma. Is anyone familiar with either of these programs? Reputation? Acceptance rate?
There are plenty of opportunities for nursing schools in NH. Along with Rivier and St. Joseph's school of Nursing, there is a new school in Manchester called HCTA 622-8400 and you can earn your LPN in 11 mos. the total cost of the program is a little over $11,000.00. I am attending there for my LPN but will head over to Rivier almost immediately for my RN. I won a NH scholarship for LPN students so I have to complete that program first.
I hope this helps. I received my LNA in October through the American Red Cross and I now work at St. Joseph's Hospital in Nashua.
Hi..........I want to attend school for my RN. I have been working towards an Associates. I have almost completed my nonnursing classes (11 of them @ Northern Essex). Now I'm trying to apply to a program. Rivier requires you to take the NLN exam. I tried to take it this fall but the exam was full. They will be offering it again in May or so I was told. I am looking in to Northern Essex, there will be an information session this month. Call them maybe you can attend and have your questions answered.
If the NLN exam was full at Rivier there are several other places to take the exam. I took my exam at the Nashua Tech Center and applied the test scores to all the places I applied.
I heard through the grapevine that St. Joseph's in Nashua is in the initial stages of preparing an RN program. . . . Just e-mail them and get on the e-mail list.
I also heard from an employee that St. Joseph's is starting an RN program, but I haven't been able to find anything official on this. I'm hoping to get accepted to the LPN program for the fall.
Jennifer mentioned a new school HCTA which I checked out, and while they are approved by th NH BON, I can't find any other accreditations, nor do they have a school code for federal financial aid.
Also, I've pretty much given up on Northern Essex, as the waiting list is long and I would have to have ALL pre-reqs completed before even being considered for acceptance. St' Joseph's has no pre-reqs.
Could you elaborate on the LPN scholarship you won? Maybe point me in the right direction to search for something like that?
