I graduated from URG with my associates and went back to URG for my bachelors. As far as instructors, Kim S definetly knows her stuff and I learned a lot from her! I'm pretty sure buckeye hills only has an LPN program. I have heard really good things about Hockings nursing program....

You're probably right. I was thinking about the LPN classes. I know one person who did graduate the RN at rio but been a long time since I've seen him. Think he liked it tho.

Kim S is a lazy bitch who gets pissed when ppl don't show up to listen to her go on and on about her cats.

Kim Stevens and Cathy C. are the best instructors they have there. Amy McDonald doesn't know her ass from a hole in the ground. She even slept with one of her students last year and almost got black mailed if she didn't pass him. And that Donna Mitchell, what a joke. She sits in her office and doesn't give a damn about the her students. That nursing program is a hell hole. Buckeye Hills does only have a LPN program but believe me they are much more intellegant and have a ten times better program established.

I attended Buckeye Hills and got my LPN. They have a wonderful program. They are very strict with attendance, grades, well everything. They have a 99% pass rate. I went to URG 3 years later and graduated and got my RN license soon after. Neither one of the courses are easy and they should not be. Nursing is not a walk in the park and you should not think it is easy. If you think it should be easy, please do not practice! You will be dangerous.

I'm in the program now and I really like it. Alot of people don't make it because they don't have what it takes or put time in to it like they should. If you do go into this program make sure you rae dedicated or you will be eating alot of money and time.

You are an idiot. You can't even spell let alone decide who know is a good nurse or not.

It wasn't poor grammar, it was a mistake. I was pissed. Sick of these losers that can't even pass nursing school criticizing actual nurses. There exists no way that the twit could possibly know all nurses whom of which graduated from Rio.

I am pretty upset at the comments that have been posted also. Obviously, you don't have your facts straight. I checked with the program and they told me they had full-approval by the Ohio Board of Nursing as well as both bachelor's and associate degrees accredited by the National League for Nursing. Check out the Ohio Board of Nursing website - they had a 90.5 pass rate this past year. I resent the fact that you say no good nurses come out of Rio. When I went to a particular hospital they told me they preferred Rio students to some of the other local schools. Not Buckeye Hills - they are an LPN program and they are a great school. Ifyou didn't make it in the program then it is easy to slam them. If you truly believed these comments then you should let yourself be known.

It's a good program, and I know a lot of hospitals like to hire Rio nursing graduates. My cousin is an Rio RN graduate working in Columbus and they commented on the program and graduates saying how they like having them work in their hospital.

Have a son who is very respected as an RN who graduated from URG. He is currently getting his BSN and will graduate with honors thanks to his background at URG. Daughter graduated from URG radiology program with honors. Both great programs.
