Hondros College Expands School of Nursing to Columbus and Dayton; Students Can Begin LPN Education Almost Immediately
Date:2/12/2008

COLUMBUS, Ohio, Feb. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Hondros College's (http://www.hondros.edu) Westerville and Fairborn campuses will welcome its first nursing students in April, following recent approval by the Ohio Board of Nursing and the Accrediting Council for Independent Colleges and Schools to expand the program. The two new campuses are an addition to the West Chester campus which has been offering the nursing program since January 2007 and recently graduated their first Practical Nursing class in December. Students with no nursing experience can be ready for the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) exam in four quarters (44 weeks). They can then choose to work as an LPN or continue their education and pursue the associate degree/RN requirements.

"With projections that by 2020 one in four Ohio nursing jobs could be vacant, Hondros College saw a need it could help fill," said Deborah Ulrich, PhD, RN, dean of the Hondros College School of Nursing. "Interest in a nursing career continues to skyrocket, creating an enrollment challenge for area nursing schools. Many programs have to deny qualified applicants simply due to lack of space in their program. In 2005-2006, lack of space accounted for over 7,400 qualified applicants being denied enrollment in Ohio RN education programs."

While many nursing programs have waiting lists for enrollment, students can start almost immediately in Hondros College's nursing education program. New classes begin four times yearly (January, April, July and October), so students no longer need to wait until autumn for enrollment or worry that a required class won't be offered for another year, Ulrich explained.

"Hondros College's ladder concept enables people to enter and progress in their nursing careers at their own pace, depending on their life circumstances," said Kellie Glendon, MSN, RNC, associate dean of the Hondros College School of Nursing. "For instance, students with no nursing experience can be eligible to take the practical nurse licensure exam after four quarters of study. They can then choose to work as LPNs and/or continue school for six more quarters to earn an associate degree in nursing and the right to pursue professional nurse licensure (RN)."

Students complete their full-time classroom and laboratory work at the Westerville campus, 4140 Executive Parkway or at the Fairborn campus, 1810 Successful Drive as well as online. Clinical experience will be gained at local area hospitals and long-term-care facilities.

The program was developed by Ulrich and Glendon, based on their nursing education experience. With more than 30 years of experience, Ulrich was a professor at Miami University, as well as an author and frequent national presenter on creative teaching strategies. While an associate professor at Miami, Glendon was awarded the Excellence in Teaching Award by the Greater Cincinnati Consortium of Colleges and Universities in 1998.

"Nurses are in demand and salaries are higher than ever before. Our main focus is on preparing students for career success and teaching them the skills to become a caring, smart and attentive nurse," Ulrich said. Hondros College nursing program information sessions are being held weekly or one-on-one appointments are available by calling 1-888-HONDROS.
