I had no prior experience in the health care field. I only know that being a nurse was my goal. The teachers and their methods were exceptional. Latoya's prepared me for my state boards as anyone graduating from a community college or university. Latoya's changed my life! I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to go into nursing.
C. Hitts, LPN
Excellent choice of school! I would refer others to this program, very caring and attentive instructors and staff.
J. Ellis, LPN
Latoya's was one of the best things I could have done for myself and my family. I did not know enough about the medical field. And in one year I became a LPN. The staff at Latoya' s takes the time to make sure you are prepared. Latoya's is like a big family, were everyone helps out. Overall, I can say this was the best decision! I could have ever made.
L. Cnudde, LPN
I felt the training and individual attention that was given helped me grow into the role of a graduated LPN. I can't thank Latoya's enough!
D. Novess, LPN
2007- 2008 class
The instruction was far superior to any other classes that I have taken at neighboring colleges. The instructors were the most meticulous and knowledgeable available in nursing. The staff was always available day and night. Latoya' s far exceeds any local nursing program in preparation for a nursing career.
