    I would think long and hard about going to a for profit institution. Yes, it may be easier to get started, but they are expensive. From what I have heard about the various for profit schools (Chamberlain, Bohecker, etc.) they do have a harder time finding clinical sites. They are not going to get first dibs on clinical locations when there are more reputable institutions vying for clinical sites. I know that Columbus State an OSU have enough work finding clinical sites for students and OSU is affiliated with one of the largest medical centers in the state!

    Also, I m curious-- Why is Bohecker not listed on the Ohio Board of Nursing under LPN or RN programs in Ohio or in the NCLEX statistics? Did they go by another name in the past?

    Bohecker-Columbus opened in November 2006. We were the first class to graduate from there so there aren't any NCLEX stats to report. They are part of RETS Tech I think they go under their name. I wouldn't recommend Bohecker to anyone. Some of the clinical sites were horrible and the instructors were even worse. The school was totally disorganized.

    Mostly LTC facilities. They couldn't any peds or L&D sites, so we had to go to a daycare.

    Just wondering if you ended up joining Boheckers LPN program. I am in my second term, and not too many complaints. minor things, but nothing major yet. Its awful pricey though!!! GOOD LUCK!

    I went to Bohecker in Ravenna (the 1st Bohecker) for my associates in business. I was straight loans and it cost me about 17 grand. Their credits do not transfer to public university's. I learned that the hard way. However you can take you NCLEX.

    I'm looking into attending Robert T. White and I can't seem to find anyone who attended Robert T. White. Can anyone help me. Just moved here from Florida, looked at Mackie Brown but can't justify $30,000 price tag.

    I am attending the Robert T White school in September of 2010. My mom's friend went there and I also have a friend attending now, they both had high reviews of the school.
