nursing schools in ohio(dayton area?)

  1. 0 i live in ohio and i have been looking for decent schools with good nursing programs...
    ive been trying to find lists of schools noted for their nursing programs and i havent had much luck. pretty much just want a decent program with helpful teachers, not a huge school if it can be helped, affordable and no religous affiliation preferably.

    thanks so much if you can get me pointed in the right direction-any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    I attend RETS College in Centerville. I will begin my 3rd term in the ADN program in a couple of weeks. I am pretty satisfied with the ADN program....a little disorganized, but the LPN program was pretty well organized. VERY expensive though.

    There are a lot of schools to choose from in the Dayton area. Wright State, Sinclair CC, Kettering, Cedarville, Edison, just to name a few.

    kettering is faith based. I attend Miami University in Middletown, just about 35 minutes down 75s. Its affordable and they have a pretty good reputation.

    Wait till you get to Term III and then IV. All Chaos will hit, and you will be re-thinking of why you went back. Only 7 students passed term 3. Need to talk to some students ahead of you.

    Fortunately, NO.
    However, I am losing many of my fellow classmates from term 4. I have a friend that is with your group that is going into term 3. I have filled her in on about everything that has happened to us. However, I would have to call her everyday just to keep her updated on the issues that have arisen. I wish you luck!!!!

    I went to Brown Mackie College-Cincinnati for a little bit, but then transfered to Miami Jacobs Career College in Springboro. I will graduate in January with my LPN. I didn't want to wait for every school's 2-3 year waiting list for RN school. This way, I get my LPN in a year, graduate and work and then go on and get my RN and by pass the waiting list because I already have my clinicals done. Half the problem with the nursin shortage is that we don't have enough nursing instructors! The state of Ohio only lets 10 students be under one clinical instructor. So, hopefully after I do some work, I would like to go back and teach! Miami Jacobs has campuses in Dayton, Troy and Springboro.
    Good Luck with your search!:redpinkhe

    Miami Jacobs here in Dayton isn't accredited or something like that...Miami university doesn't have waiting lists.

    Please please please DON'T go to Miami Jacobs Career College. Please email me if you have any questions. I graduated from their LPN program April 3, 2009 and as of today the State of Ohio doesn't have our paperwork in regards to getting licensed. Not just mine, but my entire class! Their was a recent shake up in the administration and our paperwork got misplaced, etc. Anyways, what a horrible, unorganized program Miami Jacobs is. Please email me and I will provide more info.

    Thanks

    Hello all
    There seems to be a similar shake ups at other area colleges. The Centerville College has had the same type of turmoil more than a year now. Fortunately, the major problems seem to have just been recognized with a new director of the program. Many, many things were being destructed on a daily basis, such as losing big contracts for clinicals, constantly keeping students in a daily uproar over a few instructors and their deceitfullness.
    My classmates and I completed a program on March 26, 2009 and many still have not received their ATT. this is partially, due to the High volume of applications received by the state, however, the College was reluctant to send the applications out in a timely and prudent manner.
    Good luck to all.
    As in the previous posting, research your school, ask current and former students from a diverse group of people to get an account for the schools reputation.

    Before you go to RETS or Miami Jacobs or any of the "technical" type schools...check into their accreditation. If they are not REGIONALLY accredited, many of the bigger, more respected schools (Wright State, UD), will NOT take their credits. RETS is nationally accredited. KCMA and even the the community colleges will not take most, if not all of the credits you earn at RETS.

    Oh...and I forgot to add...that Dr. Rucker (spelling? -- a big wig who speaks at the RN new student orientation at RETS) specifically stated that credits transfer to KCMA...which is a NOT true, as I looked into transferring to KCMA personally.

    I would recommend planning out your career path, and then making your final decision. If you are happy with an associates degree, RETS may be great for you. However, if you want the option of someday attaining your Bachelors or Masters degree...and don't want to be limited as to where you are able to attend school, pick a regionally accredited institution. Unless you like taking A&P, Microbiology, English, etc...twice!

    My date of completion for the LPN program was March 27 and I just got my ATT June 25. Like you said, the board is backed up, but it still took RETS almost a month to send our paperwork in in the first place. What the heck?!

    I'm planning on returning in Aug for the RN program. I keep hearing that it's terrible - everything from Dr. Misner's tests to finding enough seats for a class - but I feel at this point I'm kind of stuck. There just aren't a lot of other places to go without having to repeat a bunch of classes... hopefully things on the administration side will be a little bit better now that the lady who was losing the clinical contracts is gone...
