I am interested in becoming a LPN before advancing my career because I have to pay for school myself and The school closest to me(and cheapest) is a private school. My original plan was to become CNA (so I gain experience and save up for a more expensive RN program) and I thought I had found a cheap program but it turns out it's almost as much as the LPN program I found! Since the NCLEX-PN is the same for any nurse graduating from any LPN/LVN program, wouldn't it be fine to go to a private school (and not have to worry about the results as you would have to for other professions)?
So far, I have done my research and the NCLEX-PN pass rate for this school I am considering is really high and they are accredited. The reviews are also really good for this program. What is your opinion on private nursing programs?
What do you think? Thanks
