    Athena is not more expensive, they just tell the costs all up front, not charge you each quarter 1,000 + for more books materials insurance, uniforms, everything is provided. the number is 877 233 4141 if that helps, your number was the wrong number!! My cousin went to PSI and she said you are training yourself, the labs are in the classroom and really bad they also have alot of pre-reqs and your tuition does'nt cover all costs. they and TSPN have a waiting list and Athena doesn't yet, when they get their Federal funding they will have a wait too!!

    Hey Mrsraggs, I mailed my $100 last thursday instead of taking it down there. I called the school yesterday (Tuesday) and they received my payment and my test date is November 14th. The lady said she should be mailing the information to me.

    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.



    HEY HALEY DREW.... HOW IS THE OVERALL PROGRAM AT ATHENA?? WAS IT HARD??? HOW WERE TE CLINICALS???? CAN U TELL ME IF THE NO WORKER LEFT BEHIND PROGRAM PAYS FOR IT THERE I LIVE IN DETROIT..WILL I HAVE TO MOVE TO OHIO TO GET FUNDING??

    I bought that NET Study Guide and have been passing it so far with 80% I'm hoping the test will be the same when I take it. As far as Athena I can't take out those loans for the program so I'll stick with a school that has funding or will take the stafford loans or something else I guess. MsRaggs, maybe I'll see you on test day in November, keep me posted when you get the info in the mail and I'll do the same. I was planning on driving back and forth to Toledo because i'm already in an apartment and my son is in High School and I'll be getting unemployment by then and saving a little money between now and then for any extra's. I know a few people that live in Toldeo but I won't stay there myself, I'll take my chances on the driving.

    O Cool MsRaggs you have a sister in the program already. Has she started clinicals already? Did she say where their doing the clinicals @ and how much longer does she have to go? Is she doing the commute back and forth or staying there? Its good to hear someone thats actually attending TSPN.
