    Transcript Evaluation

    Hi, I am enrolling at WGU for the RN-BSN program and I was wondering how long it took for transcripts to be reviewed or an average timeframe... I received an email 2 days ago saying they had been received but there was no timeframe as to when I should expect the evaluation to be done. Thanks!

    NCLEX medication questions?

    I had ONE pharm question, about HMG-CoA...that's it!

    Reschedule NCLEX-RN?!!

    Thank you! I don't want to say I'm glad someone else went through this...but in a way I'm relieved to know that I'm not the only person that failed. I haven't had it in me to start studying again...but after reading that I think it is time to dust myself off and start again. I am going to read and reread the Kaplan book and I am also planning on purchasing the PDA by Lacharity and the Saunders book as well...I'm unsure if I want to do more VATI...I guess it can't hurt but I just feel that it didn't work the 1st time so maybe it isn't for me necessarily. Hopefully now that I know what to expect I will pass this second time!!!!

    MedTech LPN/RN graduates

    CONGRATS Krogers! That is SO good to hear! I am currently at MedTech, start my 4th quarter next week...clinicals! I am so nervous!! Do you have any advice for making it through the program and preparing for the NCLEX? And thanks for sharing your experience...there are so many bad stories about MedTech out here so its good to know that there are graduates passing the NCLEX on their 1st try and getting jobs!

    MedTech College

    Well...I've almost completed my 1st quarter as an RN student at MedTech College (ONLY ONE MORE FINAL!!) I have to say I am happy with my decision to go to MedTech thus far. All of the horror stories I've heard haven't proven true...but let me not speak too soon:) I've had one teacher who was a little difficult and showed a little favoritism, but even though I was not one of her favorites I am still getting an A so...oh well. Other than never seeing my babies, between work and school, I have NO complaints!

    Non NLN schools

    I'm in the same position...I am currently going to Med Tech for their RN program. Although I love the fact they offer night classes and the way it is set up, again all of this is making me nervous. I guess now at this point I will just have to pray for the best and like another person said you can always do a RN-BSN bridge or LPN-RN bridge from an accredited school!

    ITT RN Program

    ErinRN2Be nope no certain hospital. It is called the Public Service Loan Forgiveness Program. Also the state of IN has a loan repayment program as well which I believe is like a contract that you commit to working as a nurse in the state of IN for a certain amount of years. I know a lot of hospitals will help their nurses with furthering their education like the RN-BSN programs or MSN programs though.

    ITT RN Program

    Med Tech is 21 months long, financial aid will not cover the entire program either. It is $5495 a quarter and then ATI fees, books, scrubs, clinical rotation fees, etc...but in the end it will be worth it. Make 120 payments on your loans while working as a nurse and get your loans forgiven:) ...hopefully that is still offered once we graduate!!

    Med Tech, U of Indy...which one?

    Well I went to the interview and go the call later that night that I had been accepted...they have filled all spots already for the September 27th start date so I am accepted as an alternate in the even that someone were to not be able to start for some reason. If no spots become available then I will have a guaranteed spot for January. I am praying that I will be able to start sooner rather than later but whatever happens I am just grateful for the opportunity! Thanks for the congrats and the good luck:) Congrats to you too for being so close to the end!!

    ITT RN Program

    Here in Indianapolis I know some hospitals like Clarian and Community won't hire you if you didnt graduate from an NLNAC accredited school, but like you I am confident my school will get it. I believe they are coming to our school in October for a site visit. And like you said God is good, I am just thankful for this opportunity... I almost didn't see it being possible anymore. So, I had my interview and the admissions lady called me at 8pm and said that I was accepted as an alternate right now for the September 27th start date!! YES!!! I know it may sound horrible but I am hoping that someone cannot attend and I get bumped up, she sounded confident that I would...maybe someone will find out they are expecting, that wouldn't be bad lol. Ms Tee how long is ITTs program? I know they are expensive as well, did financial aid cover everything?

    ITT RN Program

    Thanks LafayetteErin for the congrats on passing the TEAS! I missed that post the other day. Anyway I went for the interview today and I think it went well...she is supposed to call me this evening to let me know. If I do get accepted then I will be listed as an alternate and pending whether or not someone drops, I could be starting September 27th. If not then I will have a guaranteed spot already for the January start date. & yeah the comment about jobs only caring about whether you have a license or not I do not believe is true because a lot of hospitals are going for "magnet status"

    You are definitely right! Do what your first instinct tells you to do. I am not sure if ITTs credits transfer but like with Med Tech, Indiana Wesleyan accepts their credits so if I do encounter a big problem I can always go there for the RN-BSN program. But I am sure within 2 years each of our schools will get the accreditation. Good Luck!!

    ITT RN Program

    Hi Lisha...I am not going to ITT however I understand what you are going through. I am planning on going to Med Tech which is another for profit school here in Indiana. I keep second guessing my decision as well and I am just hoping and praying they will get the NLNAC accreditation. I know some hospitals down here will not hire if you graduated from a school without it.

    Med Tech, U of Indy...which one?

    UPDATE!! I took the TEAS and I passed...I was really scared because I was the first done and I just knew I failed the Science but I actually did really well! YEAH!!!! I am so excited...I am now waiting for the admin. to set up my interview. Krogers, what is the interview like? Do you have any tips? I am so nervous.
