need advice on nursing programs in or near Toledo, Ohio
- 0Feb 13, '13 by mommahartHi, I just moved to Toledo Ohio with my husband and I am looking to start a RN program as soon as possible. I hear Owens community college wait list is long and after I talked to them I found out that having to take prereqs including chemistry and to be a STNA first that it would be at least next January before I would even be concidered. I didn't want to do a LPN program because of the fact it seems that most schools that I have seen that has it, it would be hard to transfer that to continue on to my RN which I want to do anyway. Right now I am concidering Bowling Green State University Firelands school but can't find much info from actual students as to how the program is there. Any info on that school or any other ones would be appreciated thanks!

Mercy will make you take Chem if you did not have this in highschool however not STNA first. Let me know if you want any info about this program.

I heard mercy is great as well as Lourdes. However Lourdes is super expensive. I'm not sure who told you there's a 2 year waiting list at Owens, but my friend applied& got in for fall semester with a 2.9 gpa. The only thing is their program lost their accreditation back in 2009 and I believe they're getting it back this fall. Good luck with whatever you decide! I know a lot about all the Toledo colleges except Mercy. Let me know if u need more info!
