Does anybody know anything about this program? I know it is a very new program. I don't even think they had their first class yet. But any information would be appreciated. Thanks... Read More
- 1Aug 24, '11 by sedmaidenas far as part time is concerned, it is 3 days a week from 8 am until about 1pm depending on the day. i had to postpone for the quarter due to financial issues. i am planning to go back if i can get everything straightened out with gas money soon. i absolutely have to say that the director of nursing program there is wonderful! i explained my situation to her and she has kept in contact with me via email and personal phone calls to see if there is something that she can do to help. the admissions rep is also great. my suggestion is to contact them and see what they say if you would like the number and the name of the rep personal message me and i will be glad to send it your way
- 0Aug 24, '11 by J845Thank you soo much for the information. I really appreciate it. My mom has been trying to get that info for the longest but no one seems to be able to answer all of her questions unless she is able to go to the campus (this is on the east side, btw). I hope everything works out well for you very soon!

- 1Sep 10, '11 by sedmaidenAfter much research and debate, I have decided to post this. Please ask many many questions regarding accreditation! The school is not NLN accredited and apparently will not be attempting to get accredited later, making it more difficult to gain employment after graduation. The credits really do not transfer, so if you intend upon seeking a BSN you will have a difficult time finding a place that will accept the credits. If you need more information please feel free to PM me. I can not stress this enough, find out everything before you sign on and attend the first class!! You will be charged if you attend 1 class, so locate the information and make an informed decision prior to that first class. I normally would not post this, but do not attend ITT Tech. It is not worth it to spend so much money and not find employment after or be able to continue your education!
- 0Sep 10, '11 by Lee J AYes this is true when you sign up for some of these nursing programs....Check the Ohio Board of Nursing website first and make sure your credits transfer. Everyone wants a quick fix but this is sooooo important. Do your research people and make an informed decision!!!
Tri-C takes so long but I know my credits will transfer and the cost is minimal.
- 1Sep 10, '11 by sedmaidenWhat these schools do, is prey on those that want to hurry the process along. You will not get them to tell you these things themselves, you must prove to this particular school that you know your information before they will tell you that you are correct. If you want the information you must do the research first, check the board of nursing, check the NLN website, also check job postings for what requirements you will need to become employed with them. I did these things myself and brought this to the schools attention and was going to be ignored until after Monday when classes were due to start. Basically they were going to get me to sit in class for the day and then the dean was going to talk to me. Make an informed decision please. If you can take courses somewhere else I would say go, you are going to restrict yourself after graduation if you attend this school. The entire point of attending a nursing program is to gain employment afterwards, keep that in mind. One of the locations that the Strongsville campus is doing clinicals at, will not accept someone from a non-NLN accredited school, so please do the research!
- 0Sep 14, '11 by sedmaidenA quick update, just got off of the phone with the dean of the Strongsville campus and he did explain some things that I can clarify for all. The campus that went for NLN accreditation was in fact denied the intial accreditation, however this does not apply to other campuses. This is where it gets complicated, the only thing that they can state is that they currently do not hold NLN accreditation. According to the dean, they can not say whether they intend upon applying for this accreditation. He kept repeating that he could only say that right now they do not hold the accreditation, but he said if or when the Strongsville campus were to apply for NLN accreditation, that they would not follow the same process as the campus in Indiana that had been denied initial accreditation. I can only assume that they will at some point attempt to get the accreditation, but as of now they are not accredited by the NLN.
I was able to point out some concerns that some people may have about finding employment after graduating, so I hope that the campus takes these things into consideration when choosing whether to seek NLN accreditation. I know that I personally would not want to be denied employment because of lack of accreditation. Since the school is not currently accredited and can not say whether they will apply or not, we need to look at the options. You can hope for them to apply and get accredited while you are attending, but there is no guarantee that this will happen. Yes 2 years is a long time to attend school and $53,000 is a lot of money to not have any clue what will happen.
This is a very difficult situation, but I wanted to throw the information out there for people so that they can make an informed decision. If you are looking at the school of ITT Tech for nursing, you need to weigh your options.
