Anyone know any good LPN schools in Dayton, OH area?

  1. 0 I FINALLY talked myself into signing up for LPN classes. The only school in the area that I can find that offers night classes is RETS Tech. I met with an advisor today, holy smokes!! $20,500! Wow that seems steep. I could have gone on to get my RN for $12k at Edison. Anyway, does anyone have any info on the cost for MVCTC or Miami Jacobs, or know of any other school around the area? Thanks so much. I feel defeated and havent even started!!

    I am a student at RETS right now, just over halfway done. It was a big chunk of change to hand over but... I tell myself it'll be better in the long run. I looked at MVCTC before i signed up at RETS. There tuition was considerably lower but it was pretty far from my house. I don't remember the exact amount but I'm thinking between $10k-$11k. You have to be an STNA to start the classes and I think uniforms were extra too. I called their admission office and they sent me a package for free with basic information.

    I am attending school at Ohio Medical Career Center (OMCC) in Dayton. The LPN program costs only $12K and you get uniforms, books, everything. I am recommending this school to all my friends.

    I have never heard of that. Is it new? Do they offer the RN bridge?

    Does this school offer financial aid or do you have to pay out of pocket?

    Did anyone happen to find out if OMCC takes financial aid?
    Also does anyone know of any school other than Hondros that doesn't require an active stna license first?

    im an lpn student at MVCTC, just about halfway done! i love it here, theres a few things that could use some work, but you'll have that anywhere. its about $14k here but worth it. you learn ALOT in the 11 months youre here! clinicals are wonderful & the clinical sites are great too. not every nursing school gets to do 1-2 quarters at a hospital setting! also you get you IV starting certification, not every lpn program offers that either. good luck!!!

    Thanks, Does CTC require you to have an active STNA license?

    Your welcome! & yes they do; they offer it here also. They have a small list of requirements before you have your spot reserved in the program- STNA, medical terminology & medical math classes (theyre 2 days a week for 1 month each; you can overlap them too!) & simple stuff like tb test & physical, etc. but theres no wait list! you can start in january or july

    I just graduated from Fortis (formally RETS) it is expensive but they have a flexible schedule. Over all I enjoyed it and met some great people. I feel they really prepared me for my nclex which I just took Tuesday and passed. Good luck where ever you choose to go

    I'm looking into Lpn schools & I am leaning toward fortis or Hondros.. Any advice? I need somewhere with a decent schedule because I am due in June & have a 2 year old son so I'm nervous about going to school with two babies
