    I go to Brown Mackie in Cincinnati. I LOVE it.
    And to go to the Oaks, don't you have to have to be an STNA first?
    Yes the education is worth it. Most hospitals in Cincy don't hire LPNs that much. And yes students are passing their boards. They are VERY NCLEX oriented. and YES we are accredited though the state board of nursing, and the ACICS.
    The one class a month thing is cool, but VERY fast paced. You have to be totally on the ball or you will fall behind in a class and never catch up.

    My school is supposed to be getting an LPN-RN bridge program that is an additional 9ms. I am really considering that. If they don't get it, I am waiting until my 3 youngins are in school full time (5-6yrs!)

    I also heard that knowing your drugs and IV math will be helpful. I had an instructor that always said "The right answer is the one that isn't wrong"

    Gawd! I remember my first few care plans. They were BAD.
    We aren't allowed to use NANDA for some reason. Must be an Ohio thing maybe.

    I am a 24 year-old widow from Cincy. I have 3 kids: 4, 2, 1.
    I will be all done in July or August. I have an Associate Degree in Medical Assisting. (rolling eyes. I could have finished my RN in that amount of time. Serves me right for not doing my research!!)
