The MA/LPN program at Eastwick is longer BUT the classes you take as a MA are the SAME classes you take your first module as a LPN. I have LPN students in ALL of my classes. It's the same A&P, Medical Terminology, Clinical lab & Lecture, etc. During our last module, we focus on MA classes while the LPNs go on to clinicals off site. IF you're in teh 2-in-1 program, you join up with the LPn class while the MA class graduates. The classes are done this way since I believe most students take the MA into LPN route. Yes it's a little loner but it helps to prepare you (in my opinion). I too was in your exact predicament. I chose Eastwick (Hackensack campus) over Lincoln Tech. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask!
BTW...The classes that you take as a MA that count towards your LPN are deducted out of your LPN tuition. They dont charge you the general tuition since you already took A LOT of the classes needed. It doesnt come up to teh $19K after all! That was a BIG relief for me when I learned that :)
