Hondros Nursing College Students

Hondros College-School of Nursing

Hondros College-School of Nursing has campuses in Dayton (Fairborn), Cincinnati (West Chester), Columbus (Westerville), and Cleveland (Independence).

Hondros College offers Practical Nursing and Associate Degree in Nursing Programs. Hondros College Nursing programs are designed to be what is called a 1+1 nursing program. Level I of the program is the PN program and takes 4 quarters to complete. At the completion of Level I, you can choose to take the NCLEX-PN exam and become a Licensed Practical Nurse, or you can move directly into Level II and earn your Associate Degree in Nursing. At the completion of Level II, you are eligible to apply to take the NCLEX-RN exam to become a Registered Nurse.

This is the same Registered Nurse license that you would earn after completing a traditional 4 year program, but at Hondros College-School of Nursing, you can complete your education in just 2 1/2 years. Hondros College Nursing programs do not require you to take pre-requisites before you apply for the nursing program. In fact, you enroll directly into the nursing program, and start taking nursing classes in Quarter 1. You will also start clinicals in week 6 of classes, so that you gain hands on experience early and often.

The benefit of the 1+1 Hondros Nursing program is that it allows you to earn your LPN License in the event that you are not able to complete the entire Associate Degree in Nursing program at one time. If you need to take a break from school for whatever reason, you can step out of the program after completing Level I and then return to Hondros College-School of Nursing to complete the Associate Degree in Nursing program when you are able to. Level I graduates are guaranteed a place in the Level II program when they return to the Hondros College Nursing programs.
