    Valencia Advanced Track Nursing Program Fall 2015

    It is all online except for lab check off the first semester and clinical. It's extremely fast paced, be prepared to spend a minimum of 60 hours a week reading, doing discussion boards and online assignments. Since you aren't going to class for lectu...

    Valencia Fast Track

    I am not working, but 99% of my classmates are working full-time. Honestly I am not sure how they are doing it because this is my only job and it's still a lot! I have two young kids yes

    Valencia Fast Track

    I'm in my second semester now. We have lost a few but we still have 17ish I think? It's very fast paced and intense but if you can commit your life to it, it's doable! The first semester was the hardest by far. By the second semester you are in a nic...

    LPN to RN

    I am starting a hybrid LPN-RN program at Valencia College in Orlando. You only have to go in for labs and clinicals which I have heard is about 1 times a week on average.. slightly more in the first semester and an occasional more during psych.
  9. I became an LPN because the waiting list for the RN programs here are 2 years long. By becoming an LPN I am bridging over and becoming an RN before I would have even been called to begin the generic RN program. 90% of my classmates found LPN jobs her...

    How long did you wait to go back to school?

    I did all my RN pre-reqs before LPN school. I graduated with my LPN November 2013 and am starting the RN bridge program next month (August 2014). I'll have my ADN July 2015 and then want to bridge straight away to get my BSN. I have two young kids bu...

    LPN Lake Tech Austis Florida

    I think me doing so well in LPN school helped me get into the bridge program. To get into the bridge program you have to do really well on your TEAS exam, good grades (B or better) on your pre-reqs (especially in the sciences), and they look at your ...

    I did feel pretty prepared. I graduated with honors and passed my NCLEX with 85 questions on the first try. I also got accepted into Valencia's LPN to RN program on my first attempt and start this August! The job market for me personally has been ter...
