    When I went to IvyTech, ro tried to, they said they were on a waitlist. Then I was told that my entry into the program is based off of an overall (statewide) score were going to be taken into consideration because the demand for their ASN program was so high.... I will not compete with someone for my education. Also I will not be told that I need to go to another location that isn't necessarily convienient for me to attend. It's nothing personal, just what I've encountered when I tried to apply.
    That's what I meant by "merit-based" enrollment - it's based on your score, which is calculated by adding together your points from your pre-req classes and your TEAS score. I believe that starting this year Ivy Tech is doing away with the "region" points that you used to get for applying at your home campus. To each his or her own, but I personally think that Ivy Tech's low tuition and good reputation make it worth the competitiveness.

    I will stick with MedTech, their NCLEX rate is practically flawless. They graduate students s almost every 3 months. All packed into a 21 month program.

    I am an MedTech RN grad. I feel that, yes I have much yet to learn about nursing. I also understand that I have a two year degree, and not a four year degree. You will not know everything when you initially graduate. If you have chosen to enter the medical field in any way, you will be a lifetime learner, and we all gotta start somewhere right? Well anywho...I can attest that several, of my classmates are working in "hospitals". I however chose to work in a rehab facility. They offered more money. Period. So I would say the only thing i'm not happy with is the amount of money this degree costs. They get a fat thumbs down on expense. I'm currently working with enrollment counselors from Aspen University for the RN to MSN program. Count me as a happy nurse! Yay!

    I am a 3rd quarter RN MedTech student. I agree that they have things to work on. I don't know anywhere that doesn't have some issues. They are working hard to improve things. Make suggestions (polietly). As far as not feeling prepared once graduated they make it clear this is an excelerated course and you have to do A LOT of OUT OF CLASS WORK. If you do not take full advantage of the resources availble and do not seek further instruction until you are comfortable you will not feel prepared. The entire staff of MedTech is willing to assist in any way they can. COMMUNICATE POLIETLY and you will be amazed at the results. Don't get me wrong I have a few issues myself, but I know if I went anywhere else I'd have things there too.
    MedTech does now take some transfers, there are certain things you can test out of, there are some schools that will take credits so you may further your education, and the LPN is accredited and RN is going for review the end of this year I believe. They are making strides in the right direction. Be patient and understanding. No matter where you go you will have to deal with different problems and learning all that you can is up to you the resources are here.
    I'll get off my soapbox now... LOL

    I currently was accepted to Medtech. I'm very excited and worried about finical aid. I do not qualify for any pell grants and there is a limit to the amount of money I can borrow through the stafford loan. Anyone have any suggestions about student loans?

    Warm regards

    Buying used books will save you some money...my cash payments would have been over 500.00 a month if I got all new books.
