    Massachusetts LPNs!!!

    I live north of Boston. There are a few places about half an hour from where I live, like Roxbury CC and Shawsheen Valley Tech in Billerica.

    Massachusetts LPNs!!!

    To all the Massachusetts LPNs out there... I'm thinking of doing the LPN plunge... so i'm trying to gather as much information as possible. If you could please tell me what school you went to, where you work now, how do you like it, your experiences, etc... Was it hard for you to get a job?? Any responses will help! Thanks!
  3. I guess I am very confused on what to do. I'm 22, live in MA, and I've been working as a medical assistant for 1 year. I have tried to get into an RN program in the past, however, although I did get into the schools themselves, I was not accepted into the RN program due to all the applicants that they receive. So what I was thinking of doing is going to an LPN program. Because of my financial situation (lots of bills and I have to pay for school myself) I cannot afford to not work full time for more than a year. At least if I go to LPN school, I'd be a nurse in a year and be able to find a job. Maybe even go on to get my BSN. My only thing is, I'd love to do my RN now, but I do not have the money. I was also reading some posts on becoming an army nurse and they pay your tuition to become an RN. I am just not sure if I want to enter the Army. I want to be a nurse so bad and just feel very unlucky in this situation. What would any of you recommend? Do you work as an RN or LPN and how has your experiences been?

    Shawsheen Valley Tech LPN

    i didnt make it for this fall, but i called them and they sent me a brochure of information and the dates for the nln testing. i already bought the book to study but am not sure yet if i wanna take the course that they offer since the cost is almost $300. for those of you who already started the program, was the admissions process hard? how are the classes so far? i currently work as a medical assistant in a doctors office. it is not the best job but ive gained valuable medical field experience. i really want to go on to get my LPN.
