    DONA SANE

    job while license on probation

    There are computer system jobs that do not require additional training. You might also want to consider working for a profit or non-profit blood bank/component organization. Glad to see you changed your username.

    Nationally Accredited ADN- But CCNE and NLNAC accredited BSN

    It is fine to begin a program that is a candidate for accreditation, but has not yet achieved it. There is a long lag in time between a school's acceptance as a candidate and the actual site visit. Go to the NLNAC website and check out the school's status/site visit date.

    job while license on probation

    In the current job market, you will have a difficult time finding employment as an RN. Perhaps you could work in something related to nursing, such as information technology (for hospitals changing to computerized physician orders and charting)? Since you are asking about such a personal issue, you may want to change your username to something that doesn't identify you.

    Anyone know any LPN restriction friendly employers?

    Perhaps a home care or private duty agency? (depends on why you have a restricted license) You may want to change your screen name. It's generally not a good idea to use your real name on online forums, especially when you are divulging personal information.

    Huron School of Nursing closure and Tri-C

    You are incorrect. The building is brand new construction.

    Huron School of Nursing closure and Tri-C

    Tri-C's Eastern Campus has a beautiful new health careers building that Nursing will be housed in.

    Tri-C Nursing Starting Spring 2011

    The Parma program is run out of the Parma Health Education Center, which is not at the hospital itself, but at 7300 State Rd. Clinicals for specialty areas (pediatrics, obstetrics, psych.) are not held at Parma hospital.
  10. AssociateDegree

    Nationally Accredited ADN- But CCNE and NLNAC accredited BSN

    ADN schools are not eligible for CCNE accreditation, only BSN programs are. Every nursing school has to start somewhere with the accreditation process and NLNAC won't even allow schools to become candidates for their accreditation if they don't already meet certain standards. Not all schools that wish to have NLNAC evaluate them can even meet the criteria. Please visit the NLNAC website for more information.

    Moving to Cleveland Area and looking @ ADN programs

    To the OP: When you have enough posts and are able to send PMs, please send me a message.

    PO Vitamin K?

    Oral vitamin K protocols have been around for a long time and can be used when parents refuse IM injections. However, parents should understand that even if they follow the protocol to the letter, their baby may still develop bleeding. Here is a link to Stanford's protocol: Vitamin K - Newborn Nursery at LPCH - Stanford University School of Medicine

    Moving to Cleveland Area and looking @ ADN programs

    I am sorry to hear that you had a bad experience when you called Tri-C today. That is not the image we hope to put out there! Please consider putting your concerns in writing, to the attention of the Dean of Nursing. I would say that it is unlikely that you could complete prerequisites in Fall 2010 and expect to begin a nursing program in Spring 2011 at any nursing program in Northeastern Ohio. By the time your Fall grades are posted, it would be close to Christmas and most programs have additional hurdles, such as an admission test, you'd have to complete prior to being put on a list for entering their program. Remember, "Spring 2011" really means January 2011 in a program that has semesters, which most Ohio programs use instead of quarters; the turnaround time is just too close. You certainly could start a program in Fall 2011, though. You don't say what part of Cleveland you'll be living in, but Tri-C is opening a West Shore campus in Westlake, which means there will be an additional 48 spaces for students, starting in January 2011.

    Lpn/Rn indecision and a little confused

    ScottE is right. Call the Academic Counseling office (there is one on every Tri-C campus) and make an appointment to speak to someone there. They will help you. Your story is a very familiar one to them. Many of our students are single mothers. You may be eligible for a variety of programs to assist you. Take that first step! Don't be afraid! (And, just FYI: Tri-C has a practical nursing program, too. Lots of students become LPNs, work for a year, and then come into the RN program with advanced standing.)
  15. AssociateDegree

    Lorain CCC

    Contact LCCC and ask them how long the waiting list is. Another thing you may want to consider: Tri-C is opening up their West Shore campus, near the Lorain county border, in early 2011. The Tri-C nursing program will be offered at that campus. Contact the Division of Nursing for more information.

    Cleveland, ohio area math tutor needed for entrance exam

    If you are a Tri-C student, they have math tutors available; contact Academic Counseling. Also, the Student Success Center for health career students offers tutoring. Contact Health Careers about that. Tutoring is free.

    Tri-C in Cleveland

    The best place to see your grades isn't on Blackboard; the grade center feature may not show your total score if your faculty member didn't set it up that way. Go to "My Tri-C Space" instead; it will be there. Not sure where you are getting your statistic, but it's not true.
  18. AssociateDegree

    Tri-C in Cleveland

    Not sure why you can't see your grades. All of our nursing grades are posted and available to students.

    Tri-C in Cleveland

    ScottE, your being male had nothing to do with it. We have lots of men in our program. The office strives to hold to certain dates for sending things out. However, remember that the office staff is not only sending out application material, but dealing with accreditation visits, other student issues, etc. Also realize that they are human and have family emergencies and deaths in the family just like the rest of us do. Sometimes things just don't go as smoothly as they'd like.
  24. AssociateDegree

    Tri-C in Cleveland

    Well, ScottE, it DOES get you something. It gets you the ability to do your clinicals, because without a background check, no hospitals will let you in. That's the reality of life in 2010. Think of it in the same way you think of car insurance; you pay money for that every month, but assuming you don't have any accidents, you aren't really getting anything out of it other than the ability to drive legally.
  25. AssociateDegree

    Tri-C in Cleveland

    We've had students as old as 68.
