    I was born and raised in Kent, and then went to Ohio University in Athens for undergrad. I moved to Columbus after that, and have been here for 8 years now. I will be starting the online ADN program at Columbus State in September. I am SO excited!!!! Right now, I have my heart set on being a NICU nurse, but I'm going to keep an open mind throughout nursing school.

    Hello everyone...

    I am raised in Cleveland, Ohio all my life. I have been a nurse for 3 1/2 years and I did one year of step-down unit and then have been doing critical care ever since. I am actually interviewing this week for a night position in a NICU. I think it is time for a change and I have been watching for a night position in a certain local NICU since I graduated and it finally has become available so I am hoping that I get the position..

    Hi Chel!
    I was "borned" and raised in Lawrence Co. Lived in the area all my life until 2.5 years ago. You would know where Chesapeake is then....LOL. I worked at River Valley Health System for 14 years until they closed in 2001. :angryfire Which LTC do you work at?

    Hi ! I'm from central ohio been an LPN for approximately 16 years and have worked mainly with the geriatric population in LTC facilities. Currently burnt out and attending school to obtain my RN degree to change directions within the field of nursing. Extremely interested in finding a way to finish my degree in a shorter period of time than the route I'm currently taking. It appears with many colleges they require the LPN to test out of several courses and take additional electives then do a transition before you can even attempt second year which is nine months. Why is it so difficult and does any one know of an easier route to obtain their RN degree?

    I just graduated from an LPN program last week and haven't even taken my NCLEX yet. However, I am bridging at Sinclair in Dayton and have already started working on getting to ball rolling so to speak. They are not requiring me to test out of anything . I do have to take their math placement test since it's been so many years since I've taken it. I guess I have to prove I can still do it. As I have a degree already, I don't have to take the Englishes, Humanities, Communications, etc. classes that normally go along with a degree program. I do have to retake Psychology because my credit is 21 years old though.

    At Sinclair, the following are waived: PAX RN exam, Chemistry, ALH 103 & 120, BIO 141, 142 & 143 and you get advanced placement credit for NSG 120, 121, 122 & 123 (you can go to www.sinclair.edu to look these up if you wish).

    I believe that the LPN to RN role transition courses are required by all schools....my guess would be that it's an OH Board of Nursing requirement.

    Good luck!
