Hi fellow Buckeyes:roll
I am just getting a good start into the ADN program through Excelsior College and am wondering before I go any further the job outlook in Ohio for EC grads?
I am looking to work PRN at a busy level 1 trauma center in the Cleveland or Columbus area, I have been a firefighter/medic for 14 years and would love to do this.
Any advice appreciated.
EC's ADN or any other ADN is fine as long as they are NLNAC (which they are). As long as you have your boards and decent contacts for getting you that first job (maybe where you work right now?) as an RN, you are all set.
I personally LOVE EC!!!!
In my opinion its the best value for people with some health care experience (LPNs etc) because its as fast or slow as you make it, no waiting list, but watch out for the mother of all nerve wrackers : the dreaded CPNE.
If you survive that you have what it takes to survive RN requirements
It cost me approx $6000 from start to finish, including attending one cpne workshop to get to RN
FYI, for what its worth, I now have 2 jobs, one as instructor and another in telemetry and love them both.
