ADN Program - Kent vs Tri-C

  1. Hi! Anyone have any input on which program is better? I am not so much concerned about cost difference as education and schedule differences. Does the Kent ADN Program (Twinsburg) go through summers so you would finish quicker? I know Tri-C does not. I have been accepted to both for 2014 Evening, just trying to decide which to go with! Thank you!

    I'm currently in kent states (twinsburg) nursing program and love it. You have the option of taking summer classes to lighten the load but you will not graduate any sooner.

    If you can go to Kent do it, Tri-C has had trouble with accredidation recently and I believe they were downgraded.

    Tri-C is fully accredited. They are being reviewed by the accreditation board again this spring. I had no idea Kent had an ADN program until after I was accepted to Tri-C. Had I known I may have looked into their program a little more, since it seemed more flexible for evening and weekends. I had to quit my job to go days at Tri-C. KSU is supposed to be really nice.

    This article talks about the Tri-C accreditation issue.
    Tri-C's two-year nursing program retains accreditation, but has it lowered to warning status |

    So they are "accredited with warning" which will hopefully be upgraded to full accreditation this spring/summer. Personally, while I'd be surprised if they did not regain their full accreditation, I would also be hesitant to begin there until the issue is fully resolved. But that's just my opinion.
