I'm attending Cincinnati State's LPN program and I think its too easy. I'm an older student and this school is much easier than the university I graduated from. Most of the test are multiple choice. A lot of the students are struggling and I just don't get it. In the prereq classes, some students will walk in 45 minutes late to take the test and the teachers go ahead and let them. (they don't allow that in the nursing classes, but I think they should get F's in the prereq classes also) At least it will bring my GPA up a little, so I can maybe get into RN school later.

I am in the LPN program at Scarlet. We have class or cohort numbers...so our group of students is number 62. That's specific to LPN though.

Hello everyone!

I am in the STNA class at Cincinnati State right now and will finish Dec. 20th. I just took my CPR for Health Professionals yesterday at Red Cross to get it out of the way, which I would recommend doing now so you don't have to do it later, since it's an 8 hour class. One less thing to worry about!

I have to say the majority of people in my class said they're planning on going into nursing (the instructor asked on the first day); however, the majority of the class is failing, too! Luckily, I've gotten all A's on my tests and presentations, but I've studied everyday, as there is a test every time we have class (3 days a week 8am-3pm for this particular class). You also cannot miss any part of the first 2 days of class or you're kicked out, and even if you miss one day of class after that, you'll have a VERY hard time getting back on track. Just a word of advice for anyone signing up for it! You really have to be certain you don't miss any part of it unless you have a dire emergency. I really love the class, though, and I am learning a lot! Just some friendly advice!

hello

I am enrolled at cincinnati state LPN program, but before i start into the LPN program I have to take 2 basic math DE courses, then i can start into the program sept 2011 im ok with that but then someone told me about a place called fortis college (was bohecker), and im starting to go through the admissions process but as someone mentioned before Im weighing the cost which is a lot cheaper 3x cheaper at cincy state. The other thing is I know there are other LPN programs out there, but it scares me when i think about the other smaller schools like bohecker/fortis, galin, kaplan, national college, brown mackie, etc possibly having issues with accredited problems really don't want to waste money or time with that type of thing. So I think i will just stay on my course at cincy state and be patient. There really isn't no way around waiting list just be patient. I think i will stay on my course at cincy those other schools just cost wayyyy to much.

Hello,

I am thinking about Cincy state but wasn't sure they had an evening program. Do you know if they are still offering the evening program? I really want to go to nursing school but I have to work and I work day shift! Would love your comments

Thanks

Hi Sarahanne,

Yes, Cincinnati State still has an evening LPN program. I am getting ready to graduate from it in April. Some of the Oaks campuses only have day classes, others only have evening classes. Some have both. If you look on Cincinnati State's website, you can look up more information about the program. It tells you which campuses offer evenings and which offer days. I'm not sure where you live, but I attend Live Oaks in Milford, and they only do evenings.

To apply to the program, you need to fill out the online application to Cincinnati State. It's free, just complete it online. Then you need to attend an information session (a list of dates on their website), take the Compass test if you don't have transfer credit, and meet an advisor. If you place into any developmental courses with the Compass test, you will need to take those before you can start the actual program.

As for working during the day and attending class at night, I've done it the whole way through the program, but it's been HARD. We had some students who started out trying to work full-time, and of those, only one is left. Most of us work part-time, though. I think only about three students in my whole class don't work at all. People will try to tell you not to work when in nursing school, but the truth is some of us have no choice. I still needed a paycheck even though I decided to go back to school. I also have two small children at home, as do several of my classmates, which makes it a lot harder. But it's totally doable. Good luck!

No news on this yet. Supposed to hear something in the Winter Term. The last thing I heard is that they are not sure whether or not they will be offering 2 clinical start times per year starting in 2012.

That's just so bad if true. One of the major reasons I am here is that they offer clinicals twice a year vs. once

(Sinclair or Raymond Walters).

I also heard a rumor that they will be eliminating it completely. If they do, they will just go off GPA? Love that stress LOL.

Good luck eveyrybody. Let's keep each other posted...

Yes, it would be bad if that happened.

I have not heard of the rumor that they would eliminate the waitlist. The only schools that do not have waitlists have application processes in which they do look at GPA, and other things (healthcare experience, volunteering, letters of recommendation, essays...). I don't see that happening.

Do you still have to attend classes (any) at cincinnati State in order for them to keep you on the wait list? When I get on it, I will have only one more quarter of full time clsses I could attend...I was looking into taking classes perhaps towards a BSN but the program I liked best is online and cannot take classes towards it unless you've got your RN already.

Any thoughts about UC's program? Is it flexible (having classes throughout the year) or you have to go through the whole 4 years...?

Thank you for posting...
