    You should look into HoHoKus school at Ramsey. I attend it and its a great school. Its an Lpn program though. Which you would be better off doing if you havent fufilled the pre requisties for the rn program. I also commute from queens ny.. its worth it. i am also wondering where do u work at because I just completed my cna certification and am looking for a job..

    U said U live in Long Island? Have U ever looked into BOCES or V.E.E.B.S.? Both offer the LPN program. I'm starting BOCES in March for their LPN program. I live in Suffolk County, so the Northport BOCES is closer to me. VEEBS is in Nassau County. I believe they start taking applications in the beginning of February for September admissions. U can go to veeb.org/lpn or call them @ 516 572 1704. Hopefully this info is helpful to u... Good Luck!
