  1. Hi, I plan on starting school on May 4 to get my LPN at MCI in Richmond VA. I'm getting cold feet though because I don't want to make a mistake in the school that I choose. This one kind of fell into my lap so to speak. It was incredibly easy to get in and the time it takes to complete LPN is like 14 months. Now I'm feeling a little skeptical about it, I checked it out it is regionally accredited, 100% passed the Nclex (Spell??) but do employers look down upon the school? Did anyone who graduated here have a hard time finding a job in Richmond? I've called several hospitals and they all say that it doesn't matter where you went to school...but I've heard otherwise from a family member who actually did the hiring for Bon Secours and a Registered Nurse. I'm also concerned about going from LPN to RN, as long as I am a licensed practical nurse, does it matter what credits I have to transfer to a new school like VCU to get my RN and work as an LPN at the same time? Someone help please! The reason why I chose this school is because of the timeframe it takes to complete. I am a single parent of 2 little preschoolers and I want to be able to have a decent job while continuing my education. I would love to hear from anyone who knows anything about this school! :redbeathe:redbeathe:redbeathe:redbeathe
