    Nurse Residency Program February 2017 - Cone Health

    In all my 11 years of being an LPN I've never heard of that kind of program....does it get you your RN diploma? How do you even get in to something like that

    Desperate to start school

    Hey everyone! I'm a current LPN and I am so ready to move on and get my BSN. I looked into Chamberlain but it's far too expensive. Are there other local schools close to Shelby, Kings Mountain, Gastonia besides the community colleges that offer nursing? I don't want to wait another 5-10 years. 20 has been long enough.

    nursing school interviews

    When I had my interviews at 2 different schools, they both asked me the same basic questions: why do I want to be a nurse, tell me about yourself, where do you see yourself 5 or so years from now. I would just say go in there being confident with yourself and just be you, thats what they want to see. Good luck:roll
