Need advice for nursing school in Dallas area

  1. I recently dropped out of the ADN program in a small town in Big Spring, TX. because I just couldn't pass those lecture tests, I feel pretty bummed out. I question wether I'm capable of being an R.N.. I was the ninth student to drop the program out of 20 that had started. Is it supposed to be this difficult? or is it just bad instructing? Im considering getting into the LVN program and then transitioning to the R.N. program. I'm moving to Dallas is there any good LVN schools to get into that don't require to wait on a waiting list? Is it hard to get accepted into the transition program? For the nursed that's completed the program what methods did the instructor prepare you for the lecture tests? If anybody could give me some advice on these questions it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank You,

    Did you search this forum for LVN info? There must be older threads about this topic here. I know that El Centro has an LVN program. http://www.elcentrocollege.edu/Progr...rs/Vo_Nurs.htm

    What do you think about Wichita Falls- a couple of hours north of DFW. There are 2 nursing schools here. Vernon College has the LVN and ADN, Midwestern State has the BSN program.

    Thanks for the advice, I'm actually from Wichita Falls, but moved away and was offered an opening through the ADN program in Vernon College, but chose Howard College not knowing what I know now. I'm considering it, but would have to move away from spouse and two kids.

    well, I'm about to start an LVN program at the Dallas Nursing Institute. There is no wait, as far as I know. Full time classes start every 3 months and they are just starting an evening/weekend program. The tuition is quite steep, I am hoping loans will cover it. Here is their number, the advisors are super nice: (214) 351-0223.
    P.S. If you were accepted into that RN program, then of course you can do it! Earning a spot in an ADN program is very prestigious! Most schools operate on a 2-year waiting list! Don't get down on yourself; I think it is supposed to be hard, you just can't get discouraged.
