    Thanks alot for the information. Do you know where I get information on the classes needed before entering the program? Also do they have TEAS V as their entrance exam? When is the application drop of time ?and how long is the waiting time? Sorry was asking so many questions I just want to be prepared before applying.

    You can go their website www.johnstoncc.edu and click on the quicklinks to select program. I believe you can do the information session online.

    I believe they are using the TEAS V

    I had to apply by March and found out in June/July (maybe closer to the end of July) for the fall

    I know they have made some changes b/c they are going for NLN accreditation.

    I would recommend that if you have to wait at all, take nutrition, pharmacology, terminology course if you can. I think they have added a chem req. They are using a concept-based curriculum which is lacking a little bit in some of those areas. You don't take specific courses: it is based on concepts and they teach what you need to know for that concept. The book is horrible, but they are working on getting a better one.
    Good Luck

    Hey! Thanks for all the information. Does LPN program need all the classes you mentioned? I already have my medical terminology class and nutrition is almost done. So for the LPN program do they need the TEAS V? As i m applying from California, i dont want to miss the application day. I m happy to hear they let you know by July. Over here the process takes about 6 months..and after a year and half they tell you if the student got in or not. I will checkout the website again, i m still confused on few things. If i have question, will post them, so alteast i m prepared before I apply next year

    I'm sorry, I don't know anything about the LPN program. We DO have a student in our class that opted to take the entire RN program rather than the bridge and I am not sure why.
