    The Associates program at St.Elizabeths in Youngstown is 5 straight semesters. Not an easy road if you don't have any Pre-req's done either. I personally would not want 18 or so credit hours a semester, it's too much with class and clinicals. I started work on the "non-nursing" work 2 years ago(Kent State) and started at Mercy this past fall. I can't say enough about the program....my experience in class and clinical has been amazing.

    Are you doing good there? What do you mean when you say there is 'no support'?

    I applied about 2 weeks ago and I dont remember seeing an option on the app of whether youre applying to the Toledo or Youngstown campus. Could someone tell me whats the difference between the two campuses. Toledo is the main campus right?

    I'm at Mercy, currently finishing my prerequisites. As with other schools, there are some very, very good teachers, and some not so good. As far as I know, all of the science teachers are very good, and we are lucky to have tree great Anatomy and Physiology teachers. Since it is a catholic school, they are big on volunteering and charitable work, but I personally like that. What I'm not all that keen on is having to take at lest 3 different religion classes, but it is more boring than hard, and I'm done with most of it. I'm doing fast track BSN, and I will have good two years of nothing but clinicals (it is about seven semesters, but I'm doing it a bit faster). I have no idea will this be enough to get me prepared for the real life, but from what I heard, Mercy nursing students have a great reputation, better than other nursing schools in the region. Apparently, Mercy nurses know their procedures when they get done with school. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask, I'll try to help.
