Why did people choose their school for this program?Why did people choose their school for this program?

"It had one of the highest rated degree programs for Nursing - I figured everything else related to healthcare would be top rated as well."
"One, they're pretty fast, only 10 months till completion in their LPN program. Two, they're affordable, more so than many colleges. Three, at least in New York, the BOCES program is well regarded, and accessible."
"I picked this school as it has one of the best LPN programs in the state and the program had great reviews. It did not also hurt that the school is located close to where I was living at the time."
"I picked it based on the cost and location."

What surprised people about the school they chose?What surprised people about the school they chose?

"I was surprised at the amount of independence you receive once you start clinical. You really have to focus - you could have the leeway to get by clinicals without learning much."
"I was surprised at just how knowledgeable my instructors were. I'm not saying my school was, it's not by any means, nor does it have a reputation as such in New York, but I certainly would've expected such knowledgeable people to be working for degree-granting institutions."
"I was surprised by the amount of hands on experience I got through my program at Utah State university. We had numerous opportunities to shadow nurses as they worked in the clinical setting and we also got to do some hands on work under the guidance of a licensed RN at one of the local hospitals."
"We had cadavers in human anatomy class to dissect and learn from."

How do people describe their job hunt?How do people describe their job hunt?

"My job hunting experience was somewhat taken care of; my school helped prepare our resumes and everything we needed. It was relatively easy but I wanted to find a job in the specific area I wanted. I already know that I was going to go to an RN program eventually."
"I applied at various area hospitals, at first I was met with some difficulties because at the time not many were looking for LPNs and there were more experienced candidates. Eventually, through perseverance and really get myself out there I found my current job."
"My job hunting experience was relatively smooth and easy. I had made a number of contacts with some of the local hospitals while in school and I applied for a few jobs at this hospitals and got a job offer within 2 weeks of finishing my program. I feel networking while in school helped me to secure a job quickly and easily."
"I was offered a job before I graduated."
