Toledo school of practical nursing
- 0Aug 20, '09 by MISSALISSA777Hi.. I've been accepted for the January class at TSPN. Wondering if anyone has any info on this school? Did you like it there? Also wondering what the scheduling was like (I'm in the day class). Thanks in advance!

- 0Aug 22, '09 by mama2boyzI've never heard of it...I'd be interested in more info though! How much does it cost? How long is the program? etc.
I'm currently working on prereqs at Owens, but due to financial concerns, I may have to drop out. Would love to find a more affordable option to still pursue my dream of being an RN (even if it means becoming an LPN first)
- 0Aug 22, '09 by MISSALISSA777I think it's like $11000. Its a year long program. There aren't prereqs, you just have to take the NET, which I thought was pretty easy. The reason I chose this route is because of the long wait lists in Michigan. I figured I"d save time by doing this first, then go into a bridge program. Hope that helps!
- 0Aug 29, '09 by nina4nursingFinally I am screaming in excitement in my living room. We are going to be classmates.
I am also in the January class at TSPN in Toledo OH. I am also in the day class.
Have you recieved your packet with the orientation information? If not they told me
that it should arrive in September which I have been watching my mail for daily.
Are u already certified as an aide or do u have to take their course? I am already
certified so I will be going directly into the program. I would love to talk more as I also
am in Michigan.
- 0Aug 29, '09 by MISSALISSA777Hey Nina!! I'm soooo glad I finally found someone who is starting here as well! I haven't received my orientation packet yet either. I called last week and she also told me sometime in September. They wait till the September class starts and get things rolling for the January class. I also applied to PSI in Toledo, I got in, but was told that I wouldn't start till January or even April. So I decided to stick with TSPN. I have to take the CNA course. I'm a certified medical assistant but apparently that counts for nothing lol. Where did you take your CNA cert? I'm wondering if I have to pay for their course or if I can use financial aid.. I forgot to ask. I'm getting excited! Where are you from? I'm in Southgate Mi. I'm glad we're going to be classmates!!!
- 0Aug 29, '09 by nina4nursingI took my cna through Athena Career Academy in Monroe Mi which is where I am located.
Please let me know when you recieve your packet and I will do the same. I take it the school
has told you not to apply for financial aid yet. Are you studying in preperation for school yet?
And what are your travel plans? It is good to know your a MA as you already have experience
with injections and blood draws. That is one of the areas as a CNA that I am lacking.
- 0Aug 29, '09 by MISSALISSA777I'll for sure let you know when I receive it..Hopefully it's soon! How much did it cost to do the CNA course through Athena? They haven't really told me anything about financial aid yet, basically just to wait till I receive the info in the mail. It takes me about 45 minutes to get there from here. Not too bad I guess. You're a lot closer being in Monroe! I'm hoping being an MA will help, but to be honest I'm as scared as I am excited! Don't worry too much about injections and blood draws... It's pretty straight forward. The only bad thing in my MA class was the practicing on each other part lol. Talk to you soon!
- 0Aug 30, '09 by nina4nursingAs far as Athena my local mi works office helped me pay for mine. If you take their
class straight out it is expensive in the neighborhood of $2,000.00 Our community college
has a class for $600.00 but a waitlist. So at $500.00 for TSPN it not such a bad deal after
all I guess, however I wonder if your certification is done in Ohio if you will be able to use it
in Michigan or if you would have to test out in Michigan if you desire to be a CNA and get a
job up here during school.
