    Actually, you can go on to Indiana Wesleyan to bridge RN-BSN.

    It is not "easy" to get accepted to Medtech's nursing program. They require tease testing only accepting scores that are in line with other programs in their area. The cost is high, but it is an accelerated program, unfortunately it is a "new" accelerated program. Accelerated programs are always going to require an even larger comittment of students due to the amount of material covered in such a short time. I am confident that Medtech isn't going to allow students to remain in their program when those students are not meeting the program's standards, especially if the school is seeking accreditation. Stay the coarse, learn what they are offering you and take it as a stepping stone in your path to becoming the nurse you want to be. Best of luck to all of you!

    I am currently a student at Medtech college in Greenwood, and im half way through my ASN, for the RN degree. I actually laughed at alot of the posts i saw put on here. The school is not as bad as everyone thinks it is. Yes it has its drawbacks, but so does every school.

    Yes, you do pay alot of money to go here, but you have to keep in mind you are paying for a private school. I like alot of the teachers here, unlike big name schools, all of our teachers hold at least a MSN, or NP in nursing. We also have several MD's that teach here. Each teacher does offer private tutoring if needed.

    You can transfer you credits to Indiana Wesleyan for the bridge program.

    The school has made alot of changes in the past year because of the future NLNAC accreditation, we will be applying for within the next month.

    It really is a great school. It is an accelerated program so you do have alot of studying and homework.

    I have worked in the hospital for 3+ years before attending medtech, and im also in the RN program, so i know what im talking about by saying it really is a good school, if you dont mind paying the money and working hard.

    All instructors in the state of Indiana, in a didactic setting must have a MSN, preferably PhD. This is not exclusive to MedTech.

    I went to Ivy Tech's LPN program. Sounds the same as MedTech's. Unorganized, teachers didnt seem to want to help you, too much crammed in. Instructors mostly read from books. Then you had to re read it and study it at home. Spent more time doing homework than I spent at school. I think instructors forgot we were paying them to teach us.

    Hmm odd. I've heard wonderful things about ITCCs nursing programs. Maybe its just my campus and a couple others?

    I went to Ivy Tech for my LPN. It seemed to me that they tried to cram too much info into too short of a time. A lot of our material was "self-study" that was tested on in class along with the material that the instructors "lectured" on (mostly it was just teachers reading power point that was copied verbatim from the text books). I'm not saying that I feel that Ivy Tech was a bad school, just that it was IMO, very disorganized and confusing at times when most of the instructors wouldn't go out of their way to explain things. "Read your text book" was the phrase that I heard from the vast majority of my instructors or "nursing isn't for everyone" was another whenever a student would ask what else they could be doing to raise their grade. Maybe this is just the way that all nursing programs are.

    Hi, I am a ADN student in Fort Wayne, in my 4th quarter, and the second ADN class that has started up here. A lot of us are VERY concerned about the NLN accrediation status with the school and the transfer of credits and being able to get a job when we graduate....can anyone let us know what they have been through? Thanks!!!
