- 0Jan 13, '09 by AJORGR6They ripped me off too! Had to file bankruptcy to keep my nursing license, they hired an attorney and in Texas they can take your nursing license if you try to cancel with them and refuse to pay. The people who represent them do not know about education (this came from their attorney) they are merely salesman making a buck! I have completed my education the old fashioned way with a 3.8 gpa GOING TO CLASS
- 0Jan 17, '09 by mnhealthcareSeveral years ago I had many of my LPN classmates tell me about The College Network however I was very skeptical and didn't sign up. After a couple of years went by I kept hearing about more and more friends, co-workers etc. that had signed up with them so I met with them myself. I have now completed two degrees, ASN and BSN and I don't know what kind of problems others claim to have had but I know I would not hesitate to sign up with The College Network again. I thought it was very straight forward and they delivered on their promises, I only had to put in the time and effort. I really wonder if some of the people complaining should perhaps look in the mirror at who is at fault cuz it really couldn't of been an easier program to follow. That's my 2 cents!!
- 0Feb 1, '09 by arlel58Who ever lived in Texas as LVN's there is a new program joint between TCN and Angelo State University in Angelo,Texas specially meant for TEXAs LVN'S only. You signed up with TCN for your pre-reqs and then enroll through ASU for your nursing program like Transitions in Nsg. one of the subjects and it will starts in Summer 09. It is a program from LVN to ADN to BSN. I have attended a workshop at MD Anderson Cancer Hospital all their LVN's ar going to this program. It is set up for busy LVN's that does not have time to go to a traditional ADN Community College. In this program you take your pace. no time limit. You can work lots of hours at thesame time studying distant learnin for your RN degree. I think this is very wonderful program. Check out their website.TCN and Angelo State University. i was formerly with the traditional RN school I withdraw and decided to go to this distand ed. For clinicals you don't need to go for CPNE for Excelsior College which is a lot of money you need to spend one week end at your state choice where you take yuour clinicals and the fee this time I believe is $1,900.00 and the waiting period is 3-9 mos.with ASU any nurse with a BSN degree can check you off for your clinicals in a hospital and complete your hours required by ASU and passed your nsg. subjects and then you can sit for the NCLEX. ASU is recognize by NLN. So you guys who are LVN's check it out. Good Luck...to all of us...
- 0Feb 1, '09 by arlel58I agree with you buddy. I know some LVN who are now RN's went through TCN and doing fairly well. I know it is a little bit expensive but hey, if you don't have time to go to a traditional community college for your ADN degree go to distant learning. Liek what I've said check it out. Indiana University has this same program with Angelo State University. But for Texas LVN's check out with ASU. okay?
- 0Mar 4, '09 by l150Sounds like this person works for TCN. I hope that whoever wrote this knows is not convincing. This person sounds rude and obnoxious. If that's how the customer service and representatives are then I would not spend one thin dime with them. Also, why are people attacking each other here? Everyone has the right to post their own experience's, good or bad.Last edit by l150 on Mar 4, '09 : Reason: Adding to comment
- 0Apr 17, '09 by tater.jakeI will back the statement that TCN is a rip off. They are not a college, they are an unnecessary middle man between you and Excelsior college. I bought some used TCN "books" which entailed text-only pages in a 3-ring binder. Somebody is making a lot of money getting people to sign contracts for this crap. I didn't even use them. The best thing to do is listen to what Excelsior tells you in their study guides and get quality texts. Excelsior works. You just have to have an understanding of how it works and what to expect before you get started.
