ITT Tech Orland Park Nursing Students

  1. 0
    Hello Out There,


    I would like to know if there are any ITT Tech students from the Chicago area out there. I will be starting there program soon (December 5th) and would like to hear from any of ITTs current nursing students. I know the program began in September of 2010. I was supposed to start a year ago (December 2010) but had my reservations about starting a brand new program. That has all changed. After applying to Wright College's bridge program for LPNs only and not being selected (they had 40 seats and 200 candidates that sucks), I decided to call ITT Tech back and go ahead with their program. I did really well on the HESI and was told that I didn't have to worry about getting in. So can anyone out there tell me what is it like at the Orland Park Campus. I am dying to hear anything. Of course regardless of what kind of input I get from this thread meaning if it's negative I will take that in consideration but will still be attending. Hey I'm not getting any younger. I've been a LPN for 7 and a half years now and want out of the nursing home NOW. It looks like ITT is my way out.

    Thanks in Advance

    You guys might want to read the last few posts of this thread from someone who attends ITT. They may not be an accredited school.

    Thanks for the heads up but I have been researching that subject and have only one thing to say about their accreditation. As long as I know that the school is approved by the illinois dept of professional regulation which they are then I know I can do two things 1. Work as a rn in illinois and two get an illinois license which is my priority. After I finish ITT I'm going for my BSN at Chamberlain. I'm not woried about the whole magnet hospital thing with the associates degree I will earn at ITT because the BSN program at Chamberlain is NLN and CCNE approved. Besides the few short months I will be working with my associates degree I will still be at my current job.

    And yes I was in orientation yesterday.

    Well, I wish you the best. I am graduating in May from an accelerated BSN nursing program in Illinois. It is the only Evening/Weekend program in the Chicago area.

    Resurrection University in Oak Park, IL. 16 month BSN program.

    Classes are 3 nights a week and clinicals are on Saturdays or Sundays.

    It allows me to keep my day job in finance until I get my RN license.

    All prereqs are completed prior to attending. You have to get an 80% on the TEAS.

    They also have a day program.
