  1. Kapiolani Community College?

    Just doing some research and wanted to know how competitive the ADN program at Kapiolani Community College is? I was thinking the waitlist would be pretty long since, from what I've gathered, it's the only ADN program on the island. Any info you ha...
  2. I'm about done with my prerequisites and I've found out my husband may be tranferred for 3 years to Ventura county. Does anyone know what the waitlist usually is at these two schools? Or do you know of any other schools in that area that may have a...
  3. Mini Diem or Super Diem?

    Anyone know what this means? I've seen a couple of ads on Monster advertising for this. I'm aware of P{er-diem, but I though this may be different?
  4. Working weekends/schedules? r/o

    Thanks guys for you supoortive posts! I think I just needed a boost of reassurance. This is a big decision for me but I think I'm going to go ahead and sign the final paperwork and pay my deposit next week. I'm just going to go for it and worry ab...
  5. Working weekends/schedules? r/o

    I know-that is completely true. That's why I'm getting cold feet; hence the original post. I wouldn't blame employers for not working around my crazy life! I'm just concerned that I'll put the time, money and effort in to school and I won't be abl...
  6. Working weekends/schedules? r/o

    It's not a shallow reason and I am dedicated to being a nurse. I've already got 10 years in the medical field. However my husband is in the US Military and is sometimes gone months at a time. I have to worry about childcare on the weekends. On to...
  7. Working weekends/schedules? r/o

    Just when I've about been accepted in to LPN school I'm getting cold feet. I've starting researching jobs and the reality has dawned on me that as a nurse I'll probably always work a good deal of weekends. This concerns me because that is my only fa...
  8. Because the wait for the ADN programs in my area are very long I'd made the decision to go with an LPN program first and then do the transitional to RN later. But after visiting all the LPN schools in my area I've found out that they either have abo...
  9. I really want to take an ADN program but it is several years waiting list and very competitive in my area. However the LPN program has openings for August and it is only 12 months. There's not many LPN openings here but I've seen a lot of LPN to AD...
  10. Rural Nursing Scholarship?

    I used to work at a medical facility and we had a nursing student doing clinicals that was on a scholarship. The scholarship payed for her schooling and even helpd a little with living expenses but she had to sign a contract that when she graduated ...
  11. Does anyone know if this is possible? I found out about a good vocational school that has a LPN program I can start fairly soon. But it is full-time and I will have to cut my work hours down to part-time. I'm going to need a little additional mone...
  12. LPN jobs/salary Broward County?

    My ultimate goal is to be a RN but with the waitlist for schools being so long I'm seriously considering going to atech. school to become a LPN fist. Anyone in Broward know how the job market and starting salary is for new graduate LPN's? Thanks
  13. Hello! I live in Broward County, FL and the wait to get into a nursing program is long I decided to go the LPN route first. I was hoping to go to a Broward County Vocational School but I saw on the website that they don't secure student loans. I a...
  14. Probaby a dumb question...

    I keep seeing the abbreviations for LVN ot LTC. What type of nurses are these? Is it the sames as an LPN? :imbar
  15. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!! I've spent about the most frustrating week of my life researching colleges in Broward. I've made the decision and I'm ready to do this and the waitlists were killing me because I'm kind of on a time constraint; on...
