    she lives near the school so she do her clinicals in ohio
    she will finish in 2009 i believe march i think she said we'll start cliicals like the 2nd or 3rd week into the program these are just ur basic cna clinicals she said she likes it
    she said u must always get a 79 % or higher in the class rooms though if u fail the semester or mod u have to start all over from the beginning and pay the cost out of ur pockets i think

    clinicals are on fridays i believe from 6-2:30

    Hi there. I recently graduated from Athena Career Academy. I was part of their first graduating class. I also recently passed the NCLEX-PN in Ohio. Yes it is more expensive than the other LPN schools in the area, but you do get in right away, which is why I went there. I don't know what else to tell you, but let me know if you have any specific questions. Good luck!

    Congrats Bacy72! Have you gotten employment yet? And if so is the salary what you expected? How long was the program and how far did you have to travel everyday?

    Thank you. I am just now starting my job hunt and am looking for $20 plus an hour. One girl I graduated with is starting out at $23 per hour. The program lasted for 1 year, a very long year! I honestly drove one hour each way. After the first quarter it wasn't bad, because it wasn't everyday. For some of the clinical sites I drove well over an hour though.

    So it wasn't everyday? How many day's was it, and is Athena in Toledo? The person that has the job already, are they working in Michigan or Ohio? Last thing, is Athena's entrance exam hard, and do you have they're number? Thanks

    Athena nursing school in Toledo, Ohio is Terrible!!!!!!!!! The Instructor turn over rate is obsurd due to their unprofesionalism. The tuition is outrageously high. The only reason anyone goes to this school is because there is no waiting list. Well guess why there is no list, because this place is garbage. Go to any school but this one!!!!
