I wanted to know about the cost of the program. Is it expensive? Have you started taking classes yet? Are they organized? I know this is the first year of the program and that make me kind of nervous. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
It is quite expensive, but it does seem that things are pretty well organized since this is the first class at the Strongsville location. I am sure there are going to be a few glitches here and there, but so far so good. I have only attended 1 class so far, late start, but it has been fun. This particular campus is $493 per credit.
So far what i have seen of things, I love it! Very one on one attention since our class size is 9 people. If you need any more information feel free to ask. For me my tuition statement runs from 06/11-03/12 and it is $20,127 for that time frame. I am not due to graduate until 08/13. Anything else i can help with feel free to ask.
If you are worried about cost, the community colleges in this area are 1/3 to 1/2 the cost of this depending on how many prereq's you may need. I checked into Bryant and Stratton and it is $40,000 for the 2 year program. I'm not sure how they can charge as much as a university but they do.
They can charge that much because they are not state funded. I taught at a 2 year school and had mixed feelings about what students were actually getting for their tuition money. There are so many advantages to attending a larger school- mainly more resources!
I definitely worry about how ITT Tech and other ADN programs are perceived on the "hiring" end... I keep hearing mixed responses.. Many people alluding to the fact that all ADN degrees may soon be outdated and that a BSN will soon be required, therefore all ADN programs hold the same value..
As far as I know you would need to just see which credits transfer over. My advice is to contact the recruiter for the nursing program and he will be able to give you more information regarding the transfer of credits. I know that they do accept transfer credits, but I am not familiar with how that will affect your progression in the program. If you want the information for the recruiter feel free to send me a PM.
as 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
Thank 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!
