There really isn't homework. Every lecture there's a test from the previous lecture. So as far as homework it's just to study. Some subjects are harder than others so really how much you study everynight will vary. The test starts right at 8am everyday. If you're late you have to take the test after school and get 5% off. But they usually grade the test immediately so you don't have to worry about the results. The tests really aren't bad, especially because getting the lecture the day before keeps the information fresh. Clinicals there's usually some project or care plan but there's plenty of time to finish those. I think the first five weeks were just lecture but I could be a little off on how long. then you have 6 weeks clinical. with clinical weeks you will have 3 days clinical 2 days classroom. after that clinical you have another 5 weeks classroom only. then the rest of the year you have clinicals. the clinical sites go 6 weeks while you're "freshman", two 8 week clinicals while your "jrs" then two 4 week and one 8 week while you're "srs" All the clinicals are in SNFs with the exception of one 4 week clinical that's with peds. I think a lot of the other LVN programs in the community colleges around here are suppose to be better programs but the wait list was too much for me. Maric/Kaplan got the job done and I did learn a lot there. Especially in clinicals, volunteer and that's where you really learn!
