    NCTC Spring 2013 LVN program

    I haven't applied yet... But I have paperwork ready! I live in Ft Worth, but at only 2 travel days per wk, I think I can handle a long commute!

    If you don't mind commuting 1000+ miles for clinicals every weekend!

    Hmmmmm...did not know about the RN program. Very interesting...
  5. AAMA and AMT offer the Certification/Registrations. There is a test you have to take, usually around $100, however, I would contact them about the qualifications needed to sit for that exam. It's been about 8 yrs since I sat for the AMT/RMA exam, though, so my numbers may be off! Good luck! :hug:

    Gotcha! Well, if they take me, I think the online deal will work out best for my schedule. So many other schools don't have part-time/weekend/evening programs. I think it's a good way to allow those who have to work a way to become a nurse. The more traditional programs are just fine if you can just do that, or part-time work.

    Sounds like math definitely doesn't bother you if you managed to save $700! Math only bothers me if it gets much more complicated than avg algebra problems. Did you guys form study groups of some kind (whether in person/online, etc)?

    That sounds wonderful! :) I know someone who went through the traditional program and she loved it and had no trouble getting a job. But yeah, I believe it will be rather difficult no matter where I go or what schedule I take. Discipline, I got that! Other than discipline and time management, (which go hand-in-hand), what else helps? I know about a good attitude and not being afraid to ask for help, etc...

    It's online, but only takes what, 1 yr like the traditional program? We would learn skills and do clinicals on-site, correct? Sorry, I know, loads of questions! Anything you can tell me would be so very helpful.

    From Pre-LVN to NURSING STUDENT

    A much belated congrats to you! Since you've been in for a semester now, can you tell me a bit about Hill's VN program? I'm looking at going there, already applied for general admission...

    Thanks I really appreciate it... Do you prefer open communication here, a PM through Allnurses.com, or via email?

    NCTC Spring 2013 LVN program

    Hi, berrynurse9, I am also looking into this very program... Looking forward to getting some information!

    msshun1973, do you mind if I ask you about the NCTC Online LVN program as well? I work full-time and a weekend/part-time/alternate schedule nursing program really appeals to me.

    anyone get into fortis college (medvance)

    I would be interested in those who are attending Fortis in TX to say a little bit about their experience. If need be, I would accept a PM. Thanks. Just considering this school.

    I wish I had info too! Gonna go meet w/ them and get some more info about their program.

    Anyone failed nursing school and went back and was successful?

    I was so thrilled to get back into the VN program, but things took a different turn this time around... Clinicals did NOT go well and I chose to withdraw from school. Now I'm looking at being a medical assistant again and possibly a private school for LVN. Glad that this thread has continued on. My own confidence had diminished to almost nothing and I second guessed myself all the time. So here I am, at a crossroads, of school vs. work or school AND work at the private school w/ part-time VN program. Hmmm so much to weigh in on...
