    That school went through some turmoil last year or the year before, as far as instructors go. Even so, they have to stick with the state curriculum and prepare you for the NCLEX. There certainly is alot more to LPN training than that!

    Do you know what books you have to buy? That should give you a clue as to what you'll be studying.

    Oh no! I might be starting that school in July 2005! Is this a bad move. Right now I'm just a COA..Which is a Certified Opthalmologist Assistant. So I'm making a pretty big change into PN. What do you think?

    Since it's only a slight possibility we'll be moving to that area I researched the school. I found their web-site from going to yellow pages, location-crossville,tn, schools, technical schools, scolled down and there is the web-site link and phone number. When you look at the PN course and description you'll see what I copied and pasted above. Might be a good idea and follow the above advice and call about the specific parts of the course that get you ready for state board. The surgical technology course looks interesting to me also. If you find out anything helpful, please post it. Thanks

    I attend the TTC in Jacksboro, let me tell you that if their program is anything like ours it is very challenging!! I am a EMT-IV with 10 years of experience and this has really pushed me to my limits. I do know that when I graduate in August I will be a great nurse.
