    do u know if working hours count for clinicals? or do u have to work on time off for clinical hours?

    Did you complete San Angelos program? I was looking into it, and when I called the school i was told that in the DFW area there are no cooperating schools unless you already work for them. and in DFW VERY few LVNs work in Hospitals.

    No, it doesnt count. U need to be doing clinical days when your're off work.

    I see all posts for Lamar State College state that this is a 15 month program. I have completed all but 6 of the BSN prerequisites. Would that shorten the length of the program or would I have to wait until the others complete theirs & start then? Also, I think my A&P I and Micro may have passed the 5 yr mark. Would I have to retake them?
