Professional Skills Institute LPN Program is a Joke Toledo - Page 2Register Today!
- Jul 19, '11 by sushifiendI graduated in March of 2011 from PSI. I took my NCLEX shortly after and it took me a week to find a job! PSI graduates have a very good reputation in Michigan and Ohio. Everyone I am still in touch with from my graduating class is employed.
PSI is legit. Don't let the lack of online information scare you away. I felt like their website did not give enough information for prospective students, and was pretty impersonal, but I attended based on good things I had heard from former grads. The best way to find out about the school is probably to schedule a 1 on 1 appointment with one of the admissions directors. I always figured they had no need to advertise, since nursing school has become a popular option, and word of mouth was effective in the MI/OH area (they had a 6 month wait when I tested).
PSI has an agreement with Lourdes College to transfer nursing clinicals and courses completed at PSI for the LPN to BSN program. If you go somewhere else, individual classes like nutrition or a & p don't transfer. If you can take them before attending, I would recommend it. Your license will get you accepted to LPN to RN or BSN programs, but you will probably have to take some general ed pre-reqs (the same you would have to take for any degree).
I probably sound like I'm employed by PSI because I have so many good things to say lol. I really appreciated the education I got there. I am thankful every day that I attended. As a new grad I had great assessment, and critical thinking skills, and was able to adapt easily to my job. As I go on in my education, I am also surprised at how much I already know. The instructors go above and beyond in the classroom. I have no regrets!

Thank you for the information. Makes me feel better about attending PSI in the fall.
- Aug 3, '11 by msmeehello, how much is the program??
- Aug 3, '11 by bbailey112The LPN day program is $20,000. My loans have covered all my costs throughout the past couple years at a community college, but did not cover the entire cost of PSI. I'm paying about $12,000 out of pocket for the program and books. My fiance on the other hand did not owe as much as I did after his loans and grants. It all depends on your financial aid status.
- Sep 6, '11 by determined2banurseThe License will transfer but if you are asking if the classes will transfer the answer is no. If you want to go further you will have to take the prerequisites required by that school, however already being an LPN does afford you to skip part of the Rn courses it depends on which school you go to. I live in MI also.
- May 11 by PSIgraduate13PSI was the best choice I ever made. Yes, people fail out of their classes but nursing school should by no means be easy. If you are considering going to a LPN school PSI will give you the best education you could ever ask for.I passed my NCLEX on the first attempt and the knowledge they gave me is more plentiful then i could ever imagine. The instructors are wonderful and very dedicated to their work. You will have no regrets if you choose PSI ,ignore the negativity, those people are angry because "lets face it" they probably failed a class and gave up. Good luck to everyone who chooses nursing as their career its hard work but the most rewarding job you could ever ask for
