My gosh you mean Texas Careers is a legitimate school?!? I was trying to look into it and it seemed like a scam to me. They are not forthcoming with information. I wanted to know if there were evening class offered, program cost, etc. Can anyone tell me any information on them?
It's been a couple weeks since you posted this, but I thought I'd go ahead and give it a try in replying to your question.
I agree that TC was not forthcoming with their info. I went there a couple of weeks ago to get info. Didn't realize I was going to be "interviewed" to go to school there. They gave me a tour around, and it seems fine enough. I finally had to ask, "What days/hours are the classes? Do you have night classes? How much does it cost? Do you have financial aid?" The cost for the LVN program is $20,000. It's 13 months if you go to the day class, which is basically full time (8a-4p). If you go to the night class it takes 18 months and is part time (6p-10p). They do have financial aid, and they don't make you pay it back until 6 months after you graduate. But, you'll have to qualify to 2 separate loans unless you can afford to pay for some of it yourself. They also asked for $1000 up front to get started. I wasn't sure about that one, but then they said they could roll it over into one of the loans, so I don't know. Anyway, I didn't sign up yet. I'm still thinking about it. It's great that it's so fast, but I want to go to the RN program some day and by not doing ALL of my pre-reqs there I don't want to get screwed in the long run. I still need to find out more about that.
Well, if you do end up reading this, I hope I helped a little more.
