Returning to school on the right foot

“When deciding to return to school and begin a career in the healthcare field, I chose CSPN. I realized that if I want to be one of the best, then I must certainly attend one of the best schools. The instructors and staff are dedicated to your success and are available to give extra help when needed. After attending CSPN, I feel as though I have gained such a sound foundation that there is no reason I can’t succeed in obtaining higher goals! I am now enrolled in classes to become an RN.”

Bringing high standards to the VA health system

“CSPN taught me so much not just about nursing, but also about the work ethic. What I learned as a CSPN student has helped me to conduct myself as a professional and to hold myself at a higher standard. I am currently working with the VA health system and went on to earn my RN. I am proud to say that I am a graduate of CSPN’s 147th Class!”

Saiydah Weems, RN 



Inspired to be a good nurse

“The entire staff at CSPN is so unique and special, each in their own way, and they all are very passionate and caring women. I feel CSPN has not only given me the tools and knowledge to be successful but also the inspiration to be a good nurse.”

Christine Linde, LPN 



Well-rounded LPN program

“I am proud to be a graduate of CSPN. The knowledge and confidence I gained from the program have served me well. The program is very well-rounded and the staff was extremely supportive; their support continues post-graduation.”

Bassey Ijoma, LPN



No prior healthcare experience

“Due to the economy, I was challenged with making a career change. Nursing had always been a dream of mine, but with no prior healthcare experience, I was apprehensive. In the classroom, the instructors were always willing to take the time to answer questions and explain concepts. During clinical, the instructors were supportive and provided instant feedback. The individual attention CSPN provided has given me the skills and knowledge I need to succeed. I am confident in my new role as an LPN!”

Christina Gonzalez, LPN 





Reinforced learning

“Central School of Practical Nursing prepares the whole person for the vocation of nursing and the entire staff is supportive and encouraging. The curriculum is an interlocked building block system, so while you learn one subject, another subject is reinforced, and the clinical experience and instruction bring the whole thing together. My decision to attend Central is one I will never regret.”

Paola Marcuz, LPN 



Excellent education

“Thank you to CSPN for the help and encouragement, and for giving me an excellent education. Today has marked the change of my life forever — I have received my license number and I am officially an LPN. Now to the next step — the start of my career.”

Sheree Wilkerson, LPN 



Prepared to attend RN program

“Since completing my LPN, I am happy to be working in the field as a nurse. I am also attending an RN program, which is going very well, thanks to the strong background I received at CSPN.”

Annet Nazziwa, LPN 



Prepared to work in prison system and the United States Army

“My education at CSPN helped me in my work as an LPN in the prison system and as a medic in the United States Army. My learning was well-above the scope of what was expected for LPNs and the assistance I received from faculty even after graduation continued to be immensely helpful. I have recommended the school numerous times.”

Rick Reagan, LPN 



Opened new doors in the job search

“After thirty years, I made the decision to change careers and researched several nursing programs. Central School of Practical Nursing came very highly recommended by several nurses I consulted. The office staff was very helpful with getting started and each and every instructor taught with a great passion for the profession of nursing. The instructors and support staff were all very available to support and help each step of the way. After completing the program I was very prepared to pass the NCLEX exam and begin working as a very competent, compassionate, and professional LPN. I found when applying for jobs, being a graduate from CSPN opened several doors for me. I am thankful for the superior education CSPN gave me to be prepared for both a rewarding and demanding career of nursing.”

Dawn Kidney, LPN 



Foundation for a diverse, 20-year nursing career

“I got a great education from CSPN, which has led to an expansive career as a nurse for the past 20 years. I have worked as a travel nurse in Texas, New Mexico, Florida, Maine, and Georgia. In addition, I’ve worked as a nurse on a ship for a major cruise company. I’m glad I invested in my education then; I’m still enjoying the rewards now.”

John Barker, LPN
