My husband recently transferred from ITT Tech Norfolk to Devry, Chesapeake. He is in the technical field (working with radios and things). Anyway, we just go the mail, and low and behold.......................
We got a flier from ITT Tech saying that their brand new
RN, ADN program will begin Winter quarter 2008. So I guess they are excepting applications right now. They dont say on the flier or on the website anything about cost at all. It looks like the start date is December 1st. It seems kind of short notice. I wonder if that is an indicator of how the program will be.. lol. So, from what I could see from their standard academic schedule the courses are about three months long. The description said that there are 9 courses in the program.
What do you guys think? Im kind of leary about this cause it has been talked about for at least a year or more. I wonder what has taken so long. Either they were taking their time to get fully prepared, or they are losing money daily without having any enrollment for this program they have been aimlessly preparing and decided to hurry up and start. I would just think that they needed to give people more of a notice for admission, transcripts, and financial aid processing.
Let me know what you think
By the way, I am an LPN student at MCI, VA Beach which is only about 10 minutes away from ITT Tech. Our RN program is only 15 months long and they have pretty good NCLeX pass rates. MCI's schedule is M-Th (evenings) and then some weekends for class or clinicals, while ITT Tech's program is supposed to be three days a week for class. Not sure about clinicals. I wanted to do the RN program initially,
but financially I couldnt do it.
