    WIA and Concorde in arlington,tx

    It depends on the state and the amount of funding that they have left. WIA is paying all but a small portion for my classes, books and uniforms. I think that it never hurts to try, even if you do get 1,500, that's 1,500 that you didn't have before to pay for school. The process is very long and can take forever but for me in the end it was worth it.

    Head to Toe Assessments - 3rd week

    I know the feeling. I'm in my second week of LPN school and the amount of material is overwhelming. I also have to study at least 2-3 hours a day to keep up. I don't think that I worked this hard while getting a B.S. degree!!!

    First off, you need to go and talk with a WIA counselor ASAP!!! Here in Louisiana the process takes about four weeks. The program pays for your book, uniform, tuition and other necessities. You may also need to take a test to qualify for the money. I started the process in early December and today I found out that I am receiving WIA funds, so the process can take a long time but stick with it.

    How much does WIA pay toward your degree???

    You do not have to qualify for unemployment it is just throught the unemployment office here in La.

    How much does WIA pay toward your degree???

    You could possibly qualify but you need to contact your WIA agency BEFORE you enroll in your program (Here it is the unemployment office).

    Our Lady of the Lake College, BR, Traditional ASN

    Have you considered taking your pre-req's in WA and then applying to nursing school at OLOL. (Without going into much detail yes it is hard to get in because they have so many applicants for those 100 spots).

    How much does WIA pay toward your degree???

    Thanks for all the responses. I just wanted to know if they were putting a cap on the amount given for the WIA grants.

    How much does WIA pay toward your degree???

    I don't qualify for grants anymore because I have a B.S. degree and the program is slightly more that $10,000 because it is offered at a private catholic college and they have a bridge program for your RN available at the school.
  9. I am starting a Practical Nursing program on January 11 and I was just talking to my WIA counselor and he told me that WIA will only pay $10,000 toward your degree and I would be responsible for the rest. I was wondering if any of you that have WIA grants have heard anything different. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Starting LPN program January 11, need some heads up

    I also start my PN program on Jan. 11th and I don't have my books yet either but I do plan to get them before class starts. I have heard that some people carry a medical dictionary to class, I am looking for a pocket sized version.
  11. BR NURSE2BEE

    Do you bring your medical dictionary with you to school?

    I will be attending Our lady of the Lake College in Baton Rouge. I'm a little nervous too I haven't been enrolled in school in a while either but I am sure that we will make it. I think it is healthy to be a little nervous because it makes you work harder. Good Luck to you!:spin:

    I would like to know the answer to this question too... btw/ what program r u starting, I'm also starting my PN program on the 11th.

    How long is your LPN Program??

    My program is 4 semesters or 16 months long. I start in January 2010, I'm so excited. I'm sure that the time will fly by, my only concern is the NCLEX exam. I have started reading some of the questions and I don't even know how I will be able to learn all the material to answer those questions properly.

    What Is The Total Cost Of Your LVN/LPN Program?

    [color=sandybrown]you have to consider the type of program that you are going into (private, cc, tech school) and you also have to keep in mind the cost of living in your area. in louisiana $13,000 is really expensive for 16 months of college where as in a place like ca, it may not be that expensive.
