    is A & P 1 and A& P 2 through straighterline.com definitely accepted by Excelsior for their ADN program? I called them and they would not give me a direct answer. Thanks

    Got my acceptance letter!

    don't be nervous, you will be fine! the questions are very general. what are your strenghs and weaknesses, why do you want to become a nurse, what if your car fails, how will you get there..if you see someone cheating what would you do..just be honest and sincere with your answers and you will do great! lots of luck to you!!

    Got my acceptance letter!

    so sorry to hear that..I would suggest def taking the prep course before retesting for next year. It was SO helpful for math.

    western suffolk bobes

    they are probably work like Eastern Suffolk Boces..I had my interview with them on Feb 1st and was told I would know by late March or even mid April. Since they have exams taking place through March sometime and wait to get them all back. HTH
  19. Hello, just wondering how common it is (if you worked as a CNA first) if your employer paid for your LPN schooling? and how long were you a CNA before this was offered? thanks much!

    CNA mandated in NY

    Can someone please tell me if this is legal? is this something I should call the dept of health and find out? this is in Long Island, NY. I work at a LTC facility (first CNA job) that is union and 8 hr shifts. I work 11-7am.(part time 22.5 hrs week) They ask you to stay at the end of your shift since they are short staffed. I sign a paper stating I cannot do it and the reason(my children need to be watched since my husband goes to work in AM) and was told I can only do this twice and then you get spoken to and suspended. Upon hiring I was NEVER told of this at all! thanks

    CNA mandated in NY

    thanks, that does make sense since NY has no staffing ratios, they should be just dealing with the number of CNA's they have on shift. My paperwork says nothing about madation. They are shortstaffed because multiple people call in daily.I am so upset since this is my first CNA job and I feel they are very misleading about things. I am still looking elsewhere since I cannot stay somehwere like this, as I have no way of working the morning shift when I am done with my night shift. ugh!

    new CNA going into LPN program next year

    Thank you both for your feedback. The more I think about things, staying at the LTC facilty is my best bet as tuition reimbursement is my goal, and so is LPN school. thanks for listening to my vent, appreciate it!
  25. ok, any advice you can give me would be greatly appreciated.. I got a job two weeks ago p/t nights which I wanted (8hr shifts) working for a nursing home which is part of 1199 union. My plan is to get into the LPN program nights (17 month program)beginning Sept 2011..great news the union pays for the program after a year which ends up being great..only thing is I have to remain working 3 night shifts a week (at least 21 hrs a week) for them cotinue to reimburse. Now, I just got called for a second interview at a hospital around the corner from me- no union, no LPN reimbursement at all(vacation,sick days,pension though)..its part time two 12hr shifts a week. It seems to be like night and day between the two facilities, morale is low at nursing home and work enviroment is very outdated (manual beds, punch clock, no computers, etc) but still managable for me. Is it feasible to go to LPN school m-thur 6:30-10pm and also work 3 nights shifts (8hrs) during the week?? I hear the program is very intense with alot of homework to cover. I have two toddlers at home and my husband works during the week only until around 6pm or so.. not taking out a student loan would be awesome but at the same time not sure if that sacrifice would be worth it?
