There are several schools in the Toledo, Ohio area that offer nursing programs. They are Lourdes College in Sylvania, Mercy College in Toledo, Owens Community College in Toledo and the University of Toledo - obviously in Toledo.
Do any of you have any experience with these schools? What are your thoughts about their respective programs. If you want to look at their websites they are as follows.
I am seriously considering Mercy College. Attended an open house today and filled out the application (only because they waived the app fee). Visited Lourdes ~ and they told me about all the "unhappy" people they get that transfer from Mercy. Today at Mercy, the gal told me that people that "fail" the Mercy program go to Lourdes. I just want to make the right choice.
There are a couple of things that bear weight on the decision. I'll share them with you.
At Mercy I simply need one chemistry course to enter their program.
At Lourdes, I need a chemistry and they won't accept the biology I'm currently doing
At UT, they do not have an evening / weekend program available and I have many many children and a full time job. I need the flexibility. Mercy DOES offer that option.
Owens ~ I'm a non-traditional student that NEVER took the ACT. They are requiring that I go take it before entering their program. The other schools are willing to look at my last year of course work at UT, during which time I have maintained a solid 4.0 gpa.
I hate decisions, so somebody on here TELL ME WHAT TO DO!!! :smackingf
