    Are LVN jobs still in demand in Los Angeles??

    Hello, I am just curious as to which state you moved to? I will be taking an LVN program in Northern California but plan to move out of California as soon as I finish, I am just not sure quite where yet? I have a small child so where ever I move I have to take School systems into account as well. Thank you for your time!

    Hello I remember you posting something on here about St Francis. Did you decide not to go? It is more on the expensive side but a very good school. They will have a LVN-RN Bridge program in 2011 as well. Good luck to you

    Got my acceptance letter from St. Francis...should I go?

    Which St Francis Location are you attending? The one in San Jose? When did they start the Pilot Program? I am currently a student at St francis and I absolutely enjoy it. The instructors are great and it is a smaller environment with more hands on experience. I would definitely say go for it. Best of luck!

    Anyone going to St. Francis Career College?

    I admitt that the program is on the expensive side but they DO offer Financial aid for those who qualify. They also have convienent class schedules. They have the day class which is Mon-Fri 8-2pm and the evening class which is 4-10pm Mon-Fri as well. The Instructors are great as well as the atmosphere. Compared to the other Vocational schools in the area WCC (western career college)which cost about 10k more and you get treated like a number instead of a person not to mention their pass rate is VERY low. St Francis is a great school.

    Anyone going to St. Francis Career College?

    Hello I am attending St.Francis College in San Jose are you in So.Cal or The Bay? I really enjoy st.francis the instructors are always there to help and the atmosphere is small so the learning process is really great. i have No complaints about the school. I have already recommended two of my friends that should be starting in September. You can write me with any questions you may have.
  14. Robert First let me say Congratulations to taking your first step in Nursing. You will not regret it! I would recommend connecting with a counselor and letting them know that you do have Diagnosed ADHD. From there they should be able to connect you with the appropriate resources. You will be just fine. Take advantage of all resources provided, you will need them. I too have ADD and 28y/o in a Full-time LVN program. Its is challenging at first but gets better. Be sure to get connected with a study Group(that will keep you on track). Buy an Organizer to keep track of everything. If you need additional info please contact me. Goodluck to you and Welcome. ADD'ers are a special breed...lol

    LPN Tuition-how much did you pay?

    Hello Christine2009 I am Attending St.Francis College. It is a great small atmosphere where some of the staff are nuns. I am not a Catholic but it is a religous setting. We dont where Scrubs, we all wear the same uniforms and once we go to clinical we where the White dress with the old style nursing hats(lol). The professors are really nice and help you with anything you need. It is a great school and I plan on staying for their LPN-RN program in 2011.
  16. Hello I recently broke my ankle in three places and required numerous screws and plates on July 5. I have been out of school for two weeks and expected to return This monday. i am so nervous in that I have missed so much and midterms are in two weeks, not to mention that I have clinicals the end of August. Please any supporting advice would help. Nursing is my dream but I feel like I may be too far behind.

    LPN Tuition-how much did you pay?

    WOW You guys and gals have it really easy as far as the cost. I am in the San Francisco Bay area and it is going to cost me $33,000 at a private catholic college. Although IV cert is included(if that makes a difference). I did however qualify for more than $10,000 in grants due to me being laid-off. Its amazing how a geographical area makes such huge difference in cost.
  18. Hello All I just want to start by first saying that is site is the absolute best! I will be starting the LVN program at St. Francis College in San Jose on Monday.

    Starting LVN Program in Three Days! NEED ADVICE

    Where are you located? St. Francis is a Catholic Private School in San Jose, Ca. They have a 100% pass rate and in 2011 they will have a LVN-RN program. It is a great small private school and they accept financial aid. Since they own hospitals in the area we do all of our Clinicals in three different locations. Admission into the school would be an Interview, Cpat and TEAS testing along a few other things. The staff is VERY helpful. I would recommend this school to anyone. Good Luck to you

    What is the typical starting pay for an LVN in the SF bay area (CALIFORNIA) with no experience??? What is the job outlook like?
  22. Hello I am VERY interested in starting the LVN program soon. I am currently taking the CNA program after completion I will attend the Medical assisting course as well as the basic Phlebotomy course for Med Professionals. Please tell me if this sounds like a good career path to becoming an LVN. In my state(BAY AREA-CALIFORNIA) Any nursing program is competitive to get into and I feel that not only will I be learning the basics but it will also look great on my school application that I have taken further steps to prepare for the program. I look forward to and appreciate any additonal advice that is offered!
