    Can anyone tell me about Ashland Community College and its nursing program? Is Ashland a good school in KY? I am possibly going to be relocating there. I have heard alot of good things about kings daughters medical center, and I was just wondering if ashland community college has a good reputation.

    The website for Ashland CC is www.ashland.kctcs.edu.

    I would check with the KY board of nursing to see if ACC is NLN accredited because about half of the community colleges in the state are not. If they are non-NLN accredited you can still get your degree and you are qualified to sit for the NCLEX. But if you plan to go further than the associate degree (such as nurse anesthetist, management, teaching, etc.) itís best to go to an NLN accredited school.

    I was accepted to two of the community colleges and decided to go to the NLN-accredited one. Each school had different points systems for ranking for acceptance. But basically, you pretty much have to have all your pre-reqs out of the way to have enough points to get in.

    Also, most of the community colleges require you to complete a 75-hour training class and pass the exam to become a certified nurse assistant prior to being admitted.

    Since Iím in southern KY, I donít know much about the Ashland area or hospitals.

    Hope this helps some.
