    I live in Southfield and I'm going to take a cna class too before i start. I haven't heard anything bad about the school just that it's all what u make of it. You live closer than I do, but I'm going I don't care the distance. When r u going to take the test? I bought the book they recommended and it seems pretty basic, but that comprehension is what i'm struggling with so hopefully by November I'll be ok.

    I've heard of WIA too but I'm not sure what it is. I know Detroit had a WIA program along time ago. I know u can get WIA through toledo if u live there.

    When you get a job as a CNA They may help pay for some of it. I would ask before you get hired, and ask about working around your school schedule. I quit my job a few weeks ago, because it was a bit much with Med Surg. Im at PSI. The clinicals at our school can be days or evenings, im in the evening program.They are saying now dont count on having your choice of clinicals, they try to please everyone but next we will have 2 clinicals in 3 weeks. Good Luck

    hi i was wondering after TSPN sends u the app why they tell u one date but once u submit the app they say another starting date? is this possible if the testing dates haven't even started?
    do u know if they have an alternate list?
    if someone fails the exam will they consider another applicant?
    i called TSPN the end of oct but they sent the app in the beginning of sept so i mailed it back but the class apparently filled fast so the lady said the next class starts in july 09

    MrsRaggs, you took your test already or your trying to take the next available test (NET)? I called and she told me the March class was just about full and the next NET test would be in November so maybe thats what she meant. So I'll be going for the July class and if don't get into that one hopefully I can get in the September one. If you fail the NET then you have one more time to retake it.

    no i have yet to take the net i'm waiting for the testing date their suppose to send you in the mail
    i'm hoping to get in the mar 09 program
    someone told me that alot of ppl either fail the net or don't show up for the orientation session and their seats become available so i'm keeping my fingers crossed

    They do have an alternate list. We started with 44 people and I believe they keep 4-5 as alternates. They do seem to fill up fast. I had to have afternoons and I started doing the process in about November an got in the next October. If I wanted days I could have got in April they said. I have seen alot of people complaining about the time frames. I do know some people don't pass the test. Personally I thought it was alot harder than the net I took at HFCC. Good Luck

    I graduated from ATHENA CAREER ACADEMY, it is a prvate school and their pass rate exceeds Toledo School of Practical Nursing, I heard TSPN was losing their lciense because of poor pass rates and poor NCLEX rates, Athena is in a much better location and they really care about their students, they also include IV certification in their program. Conditionsl spproval means they are a new program it doesn't effect whether the students graduate, all school are on coditionsl spprovsl their first year. What is really bad is if they lose their full spproval as TSPN and Browne-Mackie College are in danger of!! Half of our students come from Michigan. They are also working on an online LPN-RN program and I sm tranferring to Lourdes College they have an affiliate agreement with ATHENA for the LPN to BSN with no wait for seats. ATHENA looks more expensive because all books/materials/lab fees, uniforms, graduation, NCLEX fees are al included with the price everyone makes you pay extra money each quarter. There is no federal funding, they have Sallie Mae and a higher quality.

    Athena Career Academy LPN program doesn't require a net test and has no wait for seats the new class starts in October. We had great clinical experiences and a better progrsm. My brother went to TSPN and he said our Athena program was MUCH better!! Another class starts in January.
