Hello ☺️ 
I’m currently in the process of choosing between what school I want to attend. Bryant & Stratton(12 month program) OR Fortis College(15 month program). The curriculum for these to programs are not that similar. Will the 12 month program be more intense ? I’m not sure which one to go with, can I get some advice ? 
I attached the two curriculums for each program..... 1st image is the 12 month program & second image is the 15 month one. 
another thing to add I’m EXTREMELY bad in math, the 15 month program does not include math but the 12 month does.....

What do you want to specialize in?

Would any of the different or extra classes help/train you in the career you want?

Would 20,000 be more reasonable if it was a RN program instead ?

adn community college rn program around $5000 and adn-bsn around $6000 (wgu online program) i still think $20k is too much for RN program unless you have 80% paid up front and taking out little to no loans.

pharmacology has a lot of math so you will be doing math no matter what. 20,000 seems very high for an LPN program.

Not all states have that cheap of community colleges. In Colorado most are 15k+ for an ADN (not counting prerequisites).


Compare your options, and your difference in income.
