Clinical Sites for CSCC Program

Where does CSCC have their clinical sites at? Does it change often or do they pretty much have them in the same place for each "Class"?

Clinical sites for first quarter LTC will probably vary a lot from year to year, but Wexner, McCrory places like that. Then for the med/surg and OB its OSU, and Ohio Health hospitals. For rehab/psych it's OSU, Ohio Health and maybe a few independent free standing places. Peds will be at Children's.

Ok, thanks for the info!

Med/Surg is done at Grant a lot. I saw several CSCC classes come through during their med/surg rotation on the floor I worked with at Grant. If you choose to do the trauma elective, your last quarter can be done in the trauma bay at Grant as well.

That's really good to know, and I am happy about it. I am a firm believer that Grant and Mt. Carmel West get a bunch of stuff that normally wouldn't be seen at MCE, St. Ann's or Riverside. Just due to the diveristy of the population and the fact that they have a trauma center.

The trauma center at Grant is amazing. I used to go down there during work whenever a Level I Trauma would come in. I saw some pretty amazing things. I can't wait to do the trauma elective and then the final quarter rotation at Grant Trauma. Where else can you see someone live after coding 14 times in under 20 minutes?

How long until you graduate Forever? Do you currently work there now? What do you do there?

I am trying to make it work so that after i finish NURC 101 and 102 that i can work as a tech or aide at a hospital but the money is about 40-50% less than what I am making now.

I really would like to know what you do and what you think of it :)

I haven't started yet but my best friend starts next week at CSCC so I'll keep you posted. My roommate is about to graduate from Chamberlain and I have a lot of friends and family members that are nurses and I tend to be a walking encyclopedia sometimes.

I'm taking NURC 102 starting next week and applying in July for the next available start date, which is August 2011.

I'm debating between waiting til August 2011 to start at CSCC (which would mean I can keep my good job with good benefits that pays for school) or quitting and getting my BSN at Kent State (Jan 2011-May 2012, but lots of debt).

Sounds like you and I are in a similar situation. I will be taking NURC 101 and 102 during Summer and Fall quarters. and then will be applying in Dec/Jan for the Fall 2011 Class. I am struggling with the possibility of being wait listed.

My struggle is deciding wether paying 5x more to go to chamberlian and get done not long after I would have started at CSCC is worth the price tag.

I myself have to work full time, as i have a mortgage, car payment, two kids and a fiance. My fiance is a stay at home dad right now and probably will be until our youngest starts kindergarten in the fall of 2012. With the current economy he can't find anything that would put us in the black after childcare if he were to work.

I wouldn't recommend Chamberlain... the money isn't worth it. I wouldn't even go there it was 1/2 the cost to be honest with you.

I spoke with the CSCC dept earlier this week and they said the August 2010 class is completely full and the March 2011 class is almost entirely full. They think the July 2010 applicants will fill the rest of the March 2011 class, all of the August 2011 class, and maybe even part of the March 2012 class so you'd probably be looking at a March 2012 start date. People need to realize that the nursing shortage doesn't exist around here and only go to nursing school because they want to be nurses and not because they think there is a shortage and it is a good job!

The CSCC admissions process is very very poor, especially after applying to other schools. Too bad Tri-C can't relocate to Columbus because their process is wonderful! I have a spot waiting for me there for January 2011.

Well I have the option to moving to southern Ohio to be closer to my fiance's family that can help with child care so I could work as a PCA or something in the hospital in that area, and then could go to OU-C during the day. The only reason I cannot conisder any other programs in Central ohio, such as COTC is due to the fact that if i live in Columbus area, I HAVE to work during the day at my current job which pays very well. I couldnt work as a PCA 3rd shift so I could go to school during the day and still be able to make ends meet. It really sucks!

What is it about Chamberlain that turns you off?

My friend that is about to graduate from the ADN program hated it there as did a lot of her classmates that I met. Chamberlain doesn't have many clinical sites in Columbus and they have recently lost some. She had to do her OB rotation in southern Ohio and had to commute about 1.5 hrs each way and got next to no hands on experience as she was at a Planned Parenthood for the rotation. For another rotation she had to go to Toledo 2x a week. Chamberlain students recently lost their clinical spot at a local hospital where I know someone who as a nurse there.

The tuition is insanely expensive and I can't find anything to justify spending THAT much money. I applied there once and they "lost" my application and never got back with me. I finally called and they found it but it had been 6 months since I applied so they told me I had to reapply. Reapplying included repaying the application fee (even though they had proof I had already paid it) and resending my transcripts ($30) even though they had the most up to date copies right there in my file. If the application process is that bad, I don't even care to experience what the actual program is like!! I've heard the BSN program is a little better though. Also, their chemistry and microbiology courses are combined, so those courses will not transfer into a RN-BSN program if you ever wish to do one.

Well that is definately good to know!

Have you looked into the program at COTC, Marion Technical or any other places? They both offer ADNs and would not be nearly as expensive as going for a BSN at Kent.

COTC requires you to be a state-tested nurse aide. I've taken NURC 101 and I've worked for multiple years in a nurse aide role (and beyond) but I'm no longer eligible to take the state test. They wouldn't waive the requirement so I'd have to retake NURC 101 to apply to COTC. Marion Tech has a pretty long waitlist from what I understand so it wouldn't be any quicker than going to CSCC.

KSU is definitely expensive, but I'd have my BSN in 15 months!! I'd be a nurse a lot sooner and I would avoid doing the RN-BSN program down the road. If I didn't have a great job here, I'd definitely go to KSU...

That's interesting. Good thing is regardless of what i decide to do as far as the actuall program itself, I will still be doing NURC 101 and 102 at CSCC. I wish all schools had the ability to offer classes in the evenings, as i would definately consider COTC, OU-C and the like.

Too bad I didnt make up my mind that this was what I wanted to do back in high school or this process would have been much easier and I would have been more flexible!

Best of luck to you on whatever you decide :)

I'm with you!! I actually made fun of my friends going into nursing after high school :o. I figured it out my senior year of college, but it was faster for me to graduate with a bachelor's degree, then look on going back to nursing school so I've been "waiting" I guess you could say since August of 2008.

The other benefit for me at KSU is that they do have an evening/weekend program and you do electives in ICU/ER which most ADN programs don't offer and most jobs in those areas are reserved for BSN grads and that's where I want to work. Ahh who knows... :)

Best of luck to you as well! I wish this process was a little faster - waiting is horrible once you finally figure out what it is you want to do!
