New to Ohio and frustrated - page 3
Hi all, I am from Michigan and was in nursing school there. The Friday before I started my first nursing class my husband was offered a job here. I only got one semester of nursing classes in... Read More
Sep 25, '04[QUOTE=tomkat612]Hi all,
I have an appointment with a counselor at Wright state in June and Kettering on the 21st. In Michigan I was in an associates program.
I read this thread and wondered what you ended up doing? How did your meetings go?
Jan 17, '05Quote from tomkat612You have talked about the waiting list's. Will your credits transfer? If not, you could be working toward that. I am not sure how far you are willing to drive, however, springfield has a ADN program at the community hospital. I think that they will help pay or pay for your education as long as you sign on with them. The possiblity is that you could work as a CNA, while going to school.I worked in hospitals in Michigan as a PCA while doing my prereq's and I know LPNs could not dose narcotics, push meds and the nurses had to sign off on all their charts. I didn't mean to offend anyone, I never said you weren't a nurse. I said for myself, I would rather be an RN. If you noticed I also said I was willing to become an LPN until I can get my degree.
I also did not choose Ohio, I would never have left nursing school in Michigan if given a choice. My husband was offered a position here and for him and his career it was just too good to pass.
Although I will say since being here that most of the people have been very nice and it is a beautiful state.
Just a thought. I am in the same boat you are, the difference is that I am working for my LPN, but ultimate goal is BSN... Also if you go to www.nursing.ohio.gov, click on education and there is a PDF file of accredited schools in OHio for LPN and RN. Good luck in your quest.
Apr 23, '05Hi!
I know this post is old but I am kinda new and thought i'd reply. TOmkat, I am interested to see where you are now! I dont know where Centerville is exactly but you mentioned Dayton in one of your posts, Cincinnati is about 45 mins from Dayton and we have quite a few programs here! NKU has a BSN program that I dont think has a waiting list, C-state has an ADN program but the waiting list for clinicals is about 18 months ave. UC has an RN program but I hear their wait lists for ADN are long but they have a BSN that I dont htink waits. Xavier Univ-has a BSN program, Mount ST. Joe has a BSN program with no wait and an Masters of nursing progam, which is the route I am taking...Also Good Sam Hospital and Christ hospital both have a nursing school in the hospital (no waits, 24 mo program), they are certificate programs, you would basically be an ADN, wouldnt be LPN...there is one LPN program here that I know of at Brown Mackie College, but I dont know about their waitlist..There are so many ways to go!!! I say go the quickest and cheapest route! LOL good luck!
