- Dec 14, '10 by krogers45In response to nursemel86, to categorize a "few" nurses that you have come in contact with that happened to attend MedTech School of Nursing is wrong! Any individual that goes to any particular college, whether it be IvyTech, U of I, IU, ITT tech, etc put forth an effort in order to obtain the knowledge and skills to become exceptional nurses! I have come across numerous "University Nurses" that I would consider incompetent, but I did not associate those nurses with that particular school. I based my "opinion" (which is what it was) on the abilities, or lack of on that particular nurse(s). You as an individual have the take the initiative to obtain an understanding for the science of nursing. It is not up to the school!
Please understand that all University, Private, For-Profit schools for nursing take the same NCLEX exam!!!
You are not provided an Authorization to Test form from the Pearson education based on the school that you attended.
From my understanding........if everyone is required to take the same boards and required to obtain the same level of knowledge in order to pass............and MedTech students pass
All pre-nursing and nursing students are working towards the same goal, which is providing EXCEPTIONAL care to our patients!
Let's uplift one another. Please
- Dec 15, '10 by Emmi7Well...I've almost completed my 1st quarter as an RN student at MedTech College (ONLY ONE MORE FINAL!!)
I have to say I am happy with my decision to go to MedTech thus far. All of the horror stories I've heard haven't proven true...but let me not speak too soon I've had one teacher who was a little difficult and showed a little favoritism, but even though I was not one of her favorites I am still getting an A so...oh well.
Other than never seeing my babies, between work and school, I have NO complaints!
- Dec 20, '10 by caring422I recently graduated from MedTech. I do not have any regrets going there. I feel I am ready to take my boards soon and that I am ready to be a nurse. Going to school is what you make of it and if you do not work hard, then that shouldn't reflect poorly on the school- it would reflect poorly on the person.
- Dec 20, '10 by krogers45Congrats caring422
Please, Please, Please, post how the boards were when you take them. I am set to graduate April 1st and I've been studying for them for the past 3 months already and I'm still pretty scared.
- Dec 29, '10 by caring422Thanks! I will! I have been studying for awhile now. I am waiting on my acceptance to test from pearson vue to schedule the NCLEX. I am nervous, but ready to get it over with!
- Jan 5, '11 by ShilamarQuote from nursemel86Ok. Its really funny when people think that putting people on a waitlist which can be 2 - 3 years long. That's not being competitive that's being tacky and overly choosy. I'm not going to compete for education. Its a not a game its a privilege. Waitlist do nothing but control how many are coming out at a time. As for whomever you worked with, they may be the ones that just happen to be in a bad batch. But they had to of done something's right if they graduated AND passed the NCLEX.I graduated with my PN from Ivy Tech and also with my ASN from Ivy Tech. They are competitive, but wouldn't you want that in a nursing school? I never attended Med-Tech but I have worked with a lot of nurses who graduated from there. For the most part, these nurses are not prepared to be in the medical field. Sometimes I wonder how they passed the NCLEX. I'm not saying that these nurses are stupid or anything like that. I'm just saying that they obviously did not receive the proper education. A lot of long term care facilities will put a new grad on the floor with as little as 3 days orientation. That is hard for seasoned nurses to do, nevermind nurses that are green and had little to no formal training.

- Jan 11, '11 by ShilamarQuote from ErinRN2BAnd what campus are you referring to?Ivy Tech has no wait list. They have merit-based entry into all of their health science programs.
- Jan 11, '11 by ErinRN2BQuote from ShilamarAll of Ivy Tech's campuses operate on the same system, although I specifically attend the Lafayette campus. I got in without having to wait.And what campus are you referring to?
- Jan 11, '11 by ShilamarWhen 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.
