    Hello! Yes we both graduated August 6th! We take our nclex-pn next week, on September 24th! Wish us luck! I liked the school, and the price ... I liked all my instructors.

    San Antonio College LVN TO RN Program

    Can you tell me more about the program? I heard it was really hard, and a lot of people don't make it. What grades did you have for the preqs and core curriculum if you don't mind me asking, did you have a high GPA? Is it hard to get in?

    St. Phillips LVN Program - San Antonio, Texas

    Hello! Yes! I would also recommend that you take some classes before you start the LVN Program at St. Philips College. I would take Human Anatomy I, Human Anatomy II, Psychology Growth & Development, and Nutrition. I'm in my second semester of the LVN Program, and I had to take the full 18 hours the first semester, and it was a lot! Another reason, besides course load, to take these classes before is that they are required for the LVN to RN Program, and at least you have them out of the way now! :) I've heard a few people talk about Excelsior, what exactly is that?

    It is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing. You may continue to get your RN after you finish this program for the BSN. This is a certificate program, like all LVN programs. You can continue to go on for your RN if you choose which would be an associates degree. From there you may get your bachelors. No problem. Also for Quest USA aka Project Quest. In order for you to qualify for them one thing they make you agree upon is working full time for 12 to 18 months.

    You have to turn everything in together. But one set of your transcripts go to the school and the other set gets attached to your application. I had to wait several weeks before I knew if I was in or not, and I turned my application in the last day. haha.

    Here is the LVN program description for St. Philips: http://www.accd.edu/spc/acad/nursing/LVN.aspx There is additional pages at the bottom in blue you can click on to read more about it. It has the admission criteria, info. about the accuplacer, etc. I hope this helps!

    Yeah, the website is okay. It still leaves a lot of unanswered questions. I would email them and say you live far so maybe they could send you a copy of the application packet they give to all those who apply. Another thing I wanted to mention but forgot is you need a lot of vaccinations! They have a list of all you need. You also need current CPR for Healthcare Providers. Thank you for the congratulations on my first semester! I would send in all your transcripts now just to make sure they have them. I remember one of mine took a very long time to get there and that was all I was waiting on. You also have to take an accuplacer test, it's just a basic skills test in like reading, writing, and math, you can find practice tests and study guides online. And yes taking classes before hand I would def. recommend! You can take Anatomy & Physiology 1 and 2, nutrition, psychology growth and development. Medical terminology is not required but I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND it. During the first semester you have abbrev. and med. term. quizzes every week. I'll keep thinking and posting what else you may need or may need to know.

    I was just thinking about what I wrote, and I want to point out that I don't think all Galen students are rude, just that one girl. Everyone else I talked to from there and there teachers seem really nice. I believe that it is a good school as well, my only issue with them right now is it costs $18,000 while St. Philips only costs $6,000. You get the same education, and you both take the same state exam.
