I went to Kettering for a semester andOther
I went to Kettering for a semester and transferred back home. Kettering seemed to work out very well for some people, but unfortunately it was not the right fit for me. For one, the school is VERY difficult. The hardest work I have ever had to do. Being a medical college, they really work students insanely hard and for me, it border line drove me crazy. There really isn't much life to the college either. I was a dorm student, and people were very antisocial and rarely came out of the dorm. On weekends, I literally did nothing but study. It was very dull. The worst part about Kettering for me though, was how competitive it was. Since each program requires acceptance, everyone in the freshmen class is competing against each other. No one wants you to do well, and everyone wants you to fail so they can get into the program rather than you taking their place. It got horribly depressing and the environment was so negative and hateful that it heavily effected my emotional state and I just had to get out.

Question
The college was very helpful when it cameQuite BrightNursing
The college was very helpful when it came to getting you signed up . . . but after that everyone disappears! The BSN completion is nothing but BUSYWORK! The web portal used to get your class info is so unorganized it makes it nearly impossible to figure out what info you need for your assignments and if you use a Mac you are out of luck cause it's not compatible . . . the REALLY important info for your assignments is buried - it sucks up so much time finding it! I really thought this would be a good school since it's owned by Kettering Health Network, but I'm so disappointed! :(

Question
Please if you are reading this DO NOTBrightNursing
Please if you are reading this DO NOT dismiss this comment, I know it is negative but I do not want another person to be stuck in the same position that I am in right now. I went to Kettering because they did not have a waiting list for the nursing program. Well there is a reason why there is no waiting list, it is expensive! If the program was top notch I would say sure great education is worth it, but sadly it is not. I wished I had done my homework. Look at their NCLEX passing rating it is not good, and here is a tip from the inside due to the NCLEX passing rating being so bad they have students taking this ATI testing {mock NCLEX}during each semester and if you do not pass, even if you passed the course, they do not let you continue on. So please do your research, you may have to wait for a nursing program but it is more benifical than getting stuck in a crummy program.
