as stated in the terms of service:
while it is important to be able to network, everyone should be mindful of the following:
the best to all of you! thank you for your cooperation.
It it too bad that the name and numbers have been deleted from the post. I guess I have to agree that is for the best. Also that information gets out dated anyway. If you have any questions on who to contact send me a personal message or vist the EAYL and PTEC websites.
I went to the interview today. I met with the director of Eayl and spoke to her for about ten minutes. To get there is a little tricky. I went to the blue education building [across from the ER] and parked behind the building. I went to the second floor and waited in the EAYL area at the end of the building. I was asked again about work-related personal situations. My paper work was reviewed [test scores and work history]. It was relatively short. I learned that if you get accepted you will meet with the LPN supervisor to determine your schedule. The director said the supervisors are pretty flexible. Your duties will be patient care [aka cna] type work. I was excited to hear that as you progress you will be able to practice your LPN skills.
Hi Everyone, found this discussion on Google and I am sure everyone has been anticipating July 1st as much as me. I still have not received a letter regarding my application status & was wondering if any of you have? I hit refresh about every 5 minutes on my email's browser, ha-ha. I know it states they have until midnight tonight, but I would think that it would be sooner than that. Please let me know if any of you have received any news!! Thanks and good luck!
I received my acceptance email today about 12:30pm. I declined the seat tonight at about 6pm, and I'm sure no one is there to see it until tomorrow. M.S. stated that everyone should have an email today (if one was included in your packet) and if not then they should call on 7/2.
But don't be discouraged if you don't get in right away...seats do open up if someone declines their offer!
Good luck everyone!
I received my acceptance letter as well! :] Thank you for your quick reply!
I received my acceptance letter yesterday as well. Congrats to us!
Its been a while since I have posted! The reason why I want to add to this discussion is to keep you updated on my latest endevours, since I feel it will be of benefit to many. I have also looked around and have not found any current information. Hope this helps!
Some sad news --
I am no longer with this wonderful program, but you will discover that it is worth researching as you consider alternatives.
Please feel free to research pTEC's Practical Nursing Program via the website at www.myptec.org - Nursing Information or visit either the St. Petersburg or Clearwater campus.
Just to condense my story;
I used to work at a restaurant but decided to find a better job. So I went to the Red Cross and did their CNA course. After I finished I went to take my CNA Cert. test and failed. Mean while I got greedy and looked for work and tried to get to the LPN course at PTEC via LPN EAYL w/ BAYCARE and did not get choosen.
So I took some time to lick my wounds and gave it another try. I called the EAYL program and got my foot in the door with the Nurse Assistant Earn and Learn program. Now I am three-weeks into the program and lovin it! But, being the greedy person I am, looking into the PTEC LPN program again.
Okay so here my two-cents on the perfect approach.
Since most of us are broke but looking to better ourselves, I believe finding a stable job that while support and help you is key! (Thank God I found one!)
The Earn and Learn program I am doing is wonderful and very generous. You study for five weeks. The instruction and books are covered. You get paid 200 bucks ea. week. You graduate and get sent to work on a hospital unit. The shifts are mostly 3-12hr shifts. There are differentials for evening, overnight and weekend shifts. You get two weeks of on the job training and if you ask you can ask for a third. After a month you can be recommend to train two days as a PCT. This allows you to perform more duties and gets you about a three dollar pay increase. After a year you are free to apply for another EAYL program (LPN/RN) if you qualify.
Benefits are great!
401k traditional/roth with .5 match from baycare up to 6% contribution plus 2% annual core contribution after a year
Cheap full healthcare, dental and vision
Life Insurance free = your salary and small rates for multipliers
Accidental Death and Disability Insurance
and so much more!!!!!!
