has anyone heard of this lpn program?

its called americare institute in IL heres the link for it


the only thing is i cant find any thing about them anywhere else

they say their lpn program is approved by the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, a state agency that oversees all nursing programs in Illinois

as well as the Illinois State Board of Education

Americare is also accredited by the North Central Association Commission Accreditation on School Improvement

so what im saying is does this school have all the right credientials for an lpn program

i plan on going for an rn license later one but im wondering if this place might be good for an lpn program to start off with

  1. The big credential is if it is accredited by the nursing association. I don’t know if LPN programs have to be accredited by the nursing association. If it is required and they are not accredited, you won’t be able to transfer your credits.
    You can get a RN in 2 years. Skip the LPN and do a 2 year associates at a community college. Afterwards, while working, you can upgrade to the bachelors. For pharmacy, if you do not graduate from an accredited program, you are not allowed to take the licensing exam.
    I am from Illinois and I have never heard of that school.
    The Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation does not regulate the academic programs. They regulate the licenses. http://www.idfpr.com/dpr/WHO/nurs.asp
