Medtech does have an accredited PN program. The RN program IS NOT currently accredited but does have candidacy status. I am a 7th quarter student there and it is easy to look up the accreditation on the NLN website. Yes, many hospitals still hire Medtech students including major hospitals, many graduates are employed by major Indianapolis hospitals. It is an accelerated program and you come out of there with the knowledge you commit to learning. It is very expensive and everyone that chooses to attend is very aware of that. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but if you are not a student or have been a student then you have no idea what actually goes on there. There is a bad reputation associated with Medtech mainly because of the few students that attend that have a very bad attitude and are disrespectful to everyone staff, fellow students, and clinical sight staff. Take the time to get to know the teachers and you will find they do actually care and are very intelligent but treat them with disrespect and you will never get to tap in on that knowledge.

I am currently an RN student at medtech college and I absolutely love it there... The instructors are amazing and they all want to see you succeed... I would most def recommend medtech to anyone interested in a nursing program... I spent 3 years at ivy tech trying to get into the nursing program (I had a 4.0 GPA and scored an 81% on the teas test and still wasn't accepted). Medtech is the type of school (as with any) that you get out of if what you put into it... As far as being accredited it is most def accredited if it wasn't you wouldn't be able to use financial aid there and my gi bill wouldn't pay for it.. People get your facts straight before you start bad mouthing a college

I don't go to Medtech and I can't say whether it is good or bad, but I did want to let you all know what I heard from several nurses in different clinical settings. Most said their hospitals won't allow Medtech students to do their clinicals with them because they don't get the right training. They also said their hospital won't hire Medtech graduates. These comments, and Medtech's ridiculously high tuition rates scared me off. I am in the Ivy Tech nursing program, which has their drawbacks, but at least I have been able to complete clinicals with them.

Hey Guys,
So im having some mixed reviews here about med tech. Im considering the phlebotomy course in Ft.wayne and i would really like some feedback from anyone who has taken a phlebotomy course at any med tech course preferably Ft.wayne. I understand its an accelerated course and the level of learning is going to be intense and very hands on, this sounds like a good thing to me. I took a Wilderness EMT course through NOLS 2 months back and its was extremely Intense so the phlebotomy course cant be too hard. Just looking for some feed back on if the course prepairs you for the national certification test, and is actually a worth while course where a really good amount of learning is provided during the course and is directly applicable to work in a hospitable or anywhere phlebotomy skills are used.
Thanks for your time,
-Joe

I am a graduate of the Billing/Coding program from the Greenwood Campus. I was offered and accepted a position from my extern site. What I found was MedTech completely prepared me for the real world. I knew exactly what my very experienced co-workers were talking about and how to complete the task assigned - most of this without being formerly trained by my jobsite. I loved attending MedTech and since I am finding myself unemployed I am looking to re-enter MedTech for the RN program. Its something I have been thinking about even before I graduated.
Some of the things I didn't like were the staff members that were unorganized and unable to maintain their classroom, students who has crappy attitudes and who were rude enough to accept phone calls during final exams!!!! The computer lab was usually not functioning properly enough to keep up with the classroom, and once I graduated, Financial Aid refused to help me with finalizing forms needed for my VA grants. Another was that every semester brought several changes without warning and they were not always good.

Overall, Yes, it was expensive! Yes, it was tons of work! Yes, I had instructors and fellow students I didn't like. You get that anywhere!!! I know I will be more than prepared to enter the nursing field when I am done just like I was for entering Coding/Billing.

I have been to IUPUI and spent tons of money on items I didn't use like the gym, parking, and other fees. Not one thing I learned there has ever helped me with a job.

I am a nursing student. Things are and have gotten better. The Lpn program is fully accredited by NCLAC. I have observed many students acting out of control. These are students that are rude, crude, and cannot communicate! The teachers are Registered nurses with Bsn and Masters! Some are even the teachers of NCLEX exams. This school also provides ATI which other schools do not. The Lpn program also comes with an Associates degree unlike other Lpn programs. As for the credit transfers. My credits transferred from a nationally accredited program from California. I did not have to take A&P. Only if your credits are not transferable or been too many years you will have to take them. I am doing well and so is our class. Going into it I knew it was accelerated and expensive. That is by choice. Also students want to be given answers and not listen in class or study. It is not an easy program and I feel that the negative statements are from lazy and immature students that I would not want to be my nurse, but you are ruining it for the ones that work hard and don't ignite blame. Speak for yourself. Reassess the situation. It could be nursing is not for you. You have to be ready for changes at all times. I have worked in the medical field for 16 years. I've seen nurses right now that have not the knowledge I gain at MedTech Indy. If you were in classes long enough and passed you would prove that you did learn something. First of all- not being negative, blaming, assuming, and aggressive. If some students would have some professionalism and common sence then you might make it through. Nursing is for a seriously compassionate person--- Not a paycheck only. I think they do as best as they can and am grateful for the education. Nobody is perfect. As for my clinicals, my instructors are awesome. Very assertive and know what they are doing. I also am very estatic of my clinical site. It is so welcoming and all the other nurses are incredibly respectful and teach us which they don't even have to. Hard work is hard work. As a nurse you will have to take responsibility for your own actions and be held accountable. You also have to have to inner self being true to who you are. So please quit putting this school down and practice a care plan for your negativity. Go class of 2013!!

5 flights-yeah. Happens every day. Prerequisites a problem? Where did you get those stats? Grow up and do the research. You are wrong. MedTech is accredited from every governing body required to be a legal technical school. Including the NLNAC.
Tuition is $50,00.00? It is private proprietary school. The tuition is not a secret. If that is a problem for you -DON'T GO THERE.
The program is 21 months-that is called an accelerated program. Again, no secret. Doesn't seem to bother the many healthcare facilities that train and hire MedTech students.
The CEO visits the campus often in order to project his star quality and to hypnotize the unsuspecting, gullible, and stupid people into being duped. Or he has an open door policy that includes being available to the students not only per email (which he answers) but also meeting them in person.
Thank God that you as a CMA (just one step above a janitor) has set us all straight and support your allegations as actual facts.
Nothing that you have written is based on fact. Just your uneducated, unknowledgeable, and bitter

First off I would like to say that I went into the idea of attending Medtech College with an open mind. Yesterday (6/7/12) I attended an 'information session." To start the tour off half of the power was out so after we hiked up five flights of stairs I was informed of the so-called "high-light's" of this institute.
High-light #1- everything here is integrated, which means you do not have to do pre-recquisites to be accepted into this program. All that adds up to mean is that in the end anyone can be accepted into this nursing program. Potential employers will not look to kindly upon this because there is nothing to set you apart from the rest, sorry.
High-light #2- they are NOW ACCREDITED!!!!! Supposedly they have been in the process for a few years now, that does not matter! Never attend a school that is not accredited, I am CMA and each job I have ever applied for requires an accredited program.
High-light #3- tuition is only $50,000 and rising.... are you kidding me???
High-light #4- this program is only 21 months long... that statement speaks for itself.
High-light #5- John Hopkins is supposedly a down to earth CEO who visits this establishment often, that means before this "for profit" business takes all your money they like to stop by and say "hey" first.
I do not have enough characters to name the number of things that are truly wrong with this place. Please, please, please do your thorough research before you sign and give away thousands of dollars.

i recently withdrew myself for medtech's indianapolis campus, that school is such a joke and a complete waste of money and time. When I signed up they made it seem like it was the best thing in the world, you hardly get any type of student loans and end up paying way more than what they tell you. I only had one teacher that actually knew how to teach a class, the rest of them pull up powerpoints that you can get online and just read word for word.. i am sorry but i am paying for an education not here to teach myself. then when i get sick and missed a few days i was removed from classes without ever being told when i brought in a dr note like the attendance policy states i was told i waited to long to bring anything in and would have to retake the classes and pay the fee and just the other day when i went to pick up my transcripts i was unable to get my offical ones bc of a balanced owed on my account but was never told that instead i was told show up pay the $8 get your transcript.. I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL ITS NOTHING BUT A WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY AND ALL YOU GET FROM IT IS A HUGE HEADACHE

Can anyone tell me what you have to have on the TEAS test to get into Med Tech College? Anyone know of a place to get the study guide for a discounted price?

Thanks! :-)

Some of the reviews here bring up Medtech's accreditation. As one reviewer mentioned, accreditation is an ongoing application with both the state and the nation. Just because a school doesn't have accreditation with one body doesn't mean you should write it off. Especially with newer schools, they might be in the middle of the accreditation review process or accredited by a different body. The best thing to do is ask or visit a school's website to find out. Medtech Indianapolis' LPN program is accredited by NLNAC. There are two other Medtech locations within the Indiana area that also have additional accreditation.

I graduated Medtech as LPN in 2010 and was recently accepted into their RN program in Oct of 2011. Med Tech is a good school...Who cares if theyre not accreditated at the present time...They will get it!!! Its a process, as with all schools... Every single school started off without accreditation, of course theyve earned it since but look how long most of these other schools have been around... I was also accepted into the ITT Tech RN program but decided to go with the school that is ATLEAST on candidacy status and has 1 nursing program NLN accreditated... People are so quick to judge or speak on what they dont know!!! As with any school there will be flaws...but at the end of the day you have great material with actual experienced nurses and doctors teaching you, and the ATI to help guide you towards passing the NCLEX. As far as the tuition... yes it might be pricey compared to a community college like Ivy Tech but thats just that, its a community college. Of course its going to be cheaper but whose to say that you wont waste money and years to find out that you wont be accepted there. You choose...be a fool and spend YEARS going to Ivy Tech or U of I... playing guess who gets selected for their program or opt for a great school where you know your start and graduation date!

I went there because I was not accepted into Ivytech's nursing program, even as an honor roll student. I heard Medtech was a new, for-profit(so very expensive) school, but if I could get in, I thought it was worth a shot. Most of the instructors are good, and really do hope you succeed, however, a few are just cruel and hope to see you fail. I just graduated in Dec. of 2011 as an LPN and so much has gone wrong. One of our teachers up and quit, leaving the school with only part of our grades and we all had to accept a lower grade than we should have had in the class! Unfortunately for that, some girls failed the class and couldnt graduate. On top of that, they FAILED to tell us important information when submitting our application to the board to take our NCLEX and now it is going to take several more weeks(already been waiting for 3 weeks) before we can even get a date to sit for our boards. Now, I'm dealing with their financial aid department and the incorrect 1098 tax form they submitted me showing that I wasn't a graduate student, nor have I been paying out of pocket, which I have, over $2000 worth, since starting school there. For $30K, go somewhere else for your schooling and license. Medtech is just a headache with grumpy administration, tired instructors, and lack of proper equipment, needed for classes/computer labs. I will and have not recommended this school to anyone, except for the simple fact that I did get into the program, am now done, and will hopefully have my license soon.
In regards to their accredidation, I cannot speak for any campus location, other than Indpls, because that is where I attended, but their PN program was recently NLNAC(nationally) accredited. Their RN program is still only state accredited, not NLNAC.

They are very unorganized. They lie to you in orientation, they hire unqualified educators (ones that have drug problems lose their license etc), they overcharge your account, you cannot get a returned call or email, the labs stink because they do not have proper supplies, they do not follow the rules but expect you to. They give you your schedule just days before the next qtr begins. You cannot transfer or test out of courses if you are taking nursing. Many times you will not know where to go when you need an answer and noone will help you.

Good- short program, stay with your group that you start with, clinical sites are mostly good places, there are some really great instructors

Hello. I am a current student at Medtech. this is my fourth quarter. I am going to be an RN. I really wanted to take the time and speak out regarding accrediation rumors. There are obviously some people writing these reviews that truly don't know what nursing accrediation means. Here are a few points I should make
1) Medtech is FULLY accrediated by the Indiana State Board of Nursing. If they weren't, their nursing grads couldn't sit for the state boards (NCLEX). Initial accrediation means that a program is new and just recieved accredidation. It doesn't mean that the program isn't fully accredidated.

2) NLNAC is not required for you to work as a nurse. A LICENSE is required. NLNAC is something that schools don't have to get. It also depends on what city/state you work in whether NLNAC is important. Most states won't even ask you where you went to school when you apply for a job. They know, as long as you have a license, you are qualified to be a nurse and work.

Medtech has taken every step possible to get NLNAC accredidation. I know they just recieved it for the LPN program. Their LPN graduates go and work in top positions in Indy. If you are considering Medtech for nursing, I would not discourage you. It is a great program and I know I will benefit from my training. teh facilities are very good and alot of my instructors really care about my training. I'm not saying I don't have crappy instructors, but they are few and far between (and the world is full of crappy teachers, crappy bosses, etc).

Hello. I am a current student at Medtech. this is my fourth quarter. I am going to be an RN. I really wanted to take the time and speak out regarding accrediation rumors. There are obviously some people writing these reviews that truly don't know what nursing accrediation means. Here are a few points I should make
1) Medtech is FULLY accrediated by the Indiana State Board of Nursing. If they weren't, their nursing grads couldn't sit for the state boards (NCLEX). Initial accrediation means that a program is new and just recieved accredidation. It doesn't mean that the program isn't fully accredidated.

2) NLNAC is not required for you to work as a nurse. A LICENSE is required. NLNAC is something that schools don't have to get. It also depends on what city/state you work in whether NLNAC is important. Most states won't even ask you where you went to school when you apply for a job. They know, as long as you have a license, you are qualified to be a nurse and work.

Medtech has taken every step possible to get NLNAC accredidation. I know they just recieved it for the LPN program. Their LPN graduates go and work in top positions in Indy. If you are considering Medtech for nursing, I would not discourage you.

As a recent straight 'A', RN graduate of MedTech Indy, I can say that you get what you give. MedTech's program is designed for the student that is self-motivated and "mature". Do mot expect the experience to be easy, "fluff", or any less demanding than any other college/university nursing program. They are a "for profit" school, but that does not make them any less dedicated to their students. I have attended other "big, important" universities and let me just say that after 2 years at one of them, not one past instructor or department head would call me by name in passing. BUT after 2 years at MedTech, they could and did on a regular basis. No they do not have NLN accreditation YET, but they are working very hard towards it! ALL schools have endured "growing pains", NLN only moves so fast and they can't be pushed. As far as the comments suggesting MedTech will let anyone one in, each prospective student is required to take and pass a TEAS test just like other schools. After getting an acceptable score ontje TEAS, they conduct a criminal background check and a personal interview. Only after being interviewed by an admissions rep and a nursing instructor is it determined if you are accepted. Understand this, MedTech includes prerequisites in the program after being accepted. No prerequisites are required before the TEAS test. This being said, those taking this test are potentially "less" prepared than those at other schools taking the test after prerequisites are finished. I was required to take Math, English, ect just like any other program requires. The difference is while taking them I was also taking nursing classes and already knew I was "in" the nursing program. I did not put time into classes and then take the acceptance test to only find out I was on a waiting list. If starting your career is important to you and you don't expect a "cake walk" or your degree "handed" to you, then attend one of MedTech's information sessions and decide for yourself.

To put it very lightly "MEDTECH SUCKS!!!" Both my daughter and I attended Medtech for two semesters. During the 1st semester, I had an instructor that did not know how to teach or how to manage a class. I took my husband's advice and transferred both of us out or her class. At the end of that semester, the people who stayed in her class had a hard time passing the final exam. We, however, not only passed but earned A's because we had an instructor that could teach.
The second semester, we had the same issue with a different instructor. Instead of transferring to another class again, we decided to take it up with the head of the department. Others had spoken to her about the lack of teaching ability of our current instructor, but nothing was done or changed. (It ends up that the head of the department and this instructor are good friends.)
So, I fired of an e-mail to the dean, the head of the department, and the whole board of directors.
Next thing I know is I am getting a lecture from the dean about how "in the business world, you could not send out an e-mail like that and get away with it." I told him that I was not in the "business world", I was in the "EDUCATION" world and I was not getting what I paid for. I paid to be taught, not to listen to someone's sob stories while I am in class.
Needless to say, both my daughter and I stopped attending Medtech. Now we owe more than $6000 for what amounts to nothing but a waste of time. To top that all off, now they tell me that I owe them an extra $500 because they did not send in a claim for my state grant money that I was entitled to while I was there.
DON'T WASTE YOU TIME AND MONEY!!!
Medtech is only there to MAKE money. They don't give a squat about what kind of teachers they have or what kind of students they have. As long as you sit by quietly and pay your tuition, they are happy. Bring up an issue and things get too hard for you to stay!

At Quida: I was in the class with you. But i can put the face with the name though. But man you are soo true.. That class was a waste of time and money. My mother and i cant find a job at all..I applied for a job and i got turned down everytime. I thought with my being a cna would help some. But i thought wrong. So to whom every tries to take up a PHLEBOTOMY class, think twice before you do. I feel so bad for my mother. The day i went to sign up for this class she was waiting for her cna class to start. So when i came out of medtech i called her and was telling her about the classes and how much it cost. So i told her to she should she join me and get her money back from the cna classes. Well she did and now i feel by, cause now she will be stuck doing housekeeping cause she dnt have the job she went to school for. MedTech sucks!!!!

I graduated from Med Tech in 2007 as Medical Assistant; my extership was not related to what I went to school for - very, very disappointed!! MedTech is also very very expensive!! Believe me, Pam - the "Assistant Director" (was back in 2007) is in reality co-owner and drives a convertable mercedes - so ya know, someone has to pay for that!!!! That school is in it for the money and they deep down don't care about the students - I've been there and done that and won't do it again nor recommend this school to anyone - please listen - don't attend MedTech!!!!!!!!!!! There are plenty more better schools that are cheaper and better than MedTech!!!

I just completed the phlebotomy class on 3/26/2011. Ninety percent of the 20 class members were unhappy with the training. We went to the Indianapolis location. The "teachers" were unorganized and spent hours away from the class making copies of lessons(they were in the book) to hand out each class. A typical day was to begin at 9am. But all attendees were not there, so we began around 9:30. Then at 10:30 we had 20 min break. It was really for the main teacher to smoke. Then back again and off to lunch for 45 mins or hour at 12:30pm. Then a break at 2pm. Smoking? Then we will let you leave early at 2:30 or 3pm when the class was scheduled from 9 to 3:30pm, We only had 4 total classes and didn't have the required sticks until the last day after the final. My arm was poked so many times, I am still concerned about the large bruise and pitichia on it. It is very sore. The assistant told some students that we can't get a job with this class. We have to take another class like billing or something. The $750 was not well spent. And I still have no job or even a nibble. And the hospital HR in Noblesville said Med Tech Phlebotoby class has a bad rap!

I am a graduate of MTC-Greenwood. I just want to share my experience. I attended the RN program. Yes it is expensive. No they are not NLN at the moment. They are in canadicy. Even w/o NLN behind the institution I attended, I still make great money. I have been accepted to WGUs RN to MSN program. I will still get a BSN along the way. I enjoyed my time in nursing school. I gained lifetime friends and family as we pulled together and cheered one another along during times of discontinent and frustration. We had a great graduate class trip. Your experience will depend on your attitude and determination. Keep your focus and remember why you are there. Do not get sucked into the negativity. No its not like attending Butler or IU. But you will be finished before you can blink and making good money. You will come out with the knowledge you need to be a working nurse NOW! At least three people I graduated with work in major hospitals. You simply apply to hospitals that aren't applying for magnet status yet. When they do get magnet you have that under your belt too. I have chosen not to do so because I was offered more money elsewhere. Medtech was HARD work, but I am happy overall and would not trade the experience for anything. I seem to have more nursing knowledge than many of my counterparts. That makes me more confident that I have been educated to be a safe and effective nurse. They did not get the fifth star from me because of cost. Be an RN!

I had an appointment to meet with a academic advisor at the Indy location. So I arrived early (not really knowing where I was going) and looked around before I went to my appointment. Many of the students that I came across were Rude/Disrespectful/Loud! I was standing in line for the elevator and during the wait for the elevator others were trying to pass through the hall, the students would just stand there and ignore them, or get an attitude because someone needed to get through. Half of them look sloppy and unprofessional. I didn't even want to show up to my appointment. Why would I want to be in class with students like this? And who on earth would want them as their Medical Assistant? Good luck finding a job! I've heard good things about the Greenwood campus, I think I'll try them instead.

Ft. Wayne campus has a lot of work to do. As a recent graduate in their RN program, some of the teachers need fired. I feel most of the teachers did not prepare our class for NCLEX. The result of this is bad. Right not the passing rate is VERY POOR. It can be a good program if they get the right staff. Don't get me wrong MedTech of Ft. Wayne has some quality teachers but they need more quality teachers in the core nursing classes. The teachers need to be more dedicated and teach from their own notes and powerpoints!

This 43 year old has been debating going to school for nursing in Indiana. I came across Medtech's website and gave it some thought. I seen these reviews and come on people don't hate, and just do your homework. It took me thirty seconds to google INDIANA PROFESSIONAL LICENSING AGENCY and look up schools that are FULLY ACCREDITED BY THE STATE OF INDIANA. If Medtech of Greenwood, IN is telling you they are FULLY ACCREDITED BY THE STATE, it is a lie. Their current status is: Initial Accreditation. It seems their Indianapolis campus is fully accredited.

I've had a great experience at Medtech. I've been to the Greenwood campus and the Indianapolis campus and I liked them both. You have to put effort into learning the material, you can't just expect the instructors to spoon feed you the info. All the instructors I've had really care about making sure you not only know the information but that you understand it also.

I have been out of school for 25+ years. I went in nervous if I could pull this off. This is college and you only get out of what you put in it! what people are complaining about is they want all the answers given to them, just because the teacher might not know a answer the book is in front of you and there a thing called google! I have a close friend that has spent 4 years at Hanover College and the professors expect you to do all the research, and that's why my friend spent countless hours in the library and graduated 4.0 top of class. It takes work on your behalf I'm in my third qrt. and I love it. I work 70+ hours a week and still find time to do my assignments. I look forward each day attending class because I always come home knowing something new!

as far as promises made at recruitment, It is a business, wake up and smell the roses it's called life. You have a choice to stay or leave but not everyone is going to have the same experience as you. Life is made up of choices and don't let a few bad apples or experiences discourage you from checking it out for your self.

On a personal note, I love the greenwood campus and the staff, they have worked hard to work around my schedule and I am proud to say I go to Med Tech College.

I'll close with a quote: your mind is like a parachute, it only works when open!

PLEASE do your research about this school! I am a recent graduate, and overall I have had a negative experience with the school. They told nothing but lies at the information session. The teacher turnover rate is ridiculous! In a number of classes, there were no instructors for weeks at a time. I am talking like 2 or 3 weeks! Not only teachers, the staff in general. In addition, the so-called "rules" of the school were never enforced! Everyone does what they want, including teachers and staff. One teacher in particular spent about 20 minutes of added up class time outside taking a "smoke break". The class times are very limited, due to the shortage of teachers. The financial aid department is ALWAYS making up "rules" about what the students are allowed to do with their own money. So please save yourself the time and drama and do your research first. I wish I would have.

I graduated from medtech March 2010 and two months later I was living my dream of being a nurse! I enjoyed my time at medtech. It was probably the hardest and most rewarding thing that I have ever done. If being a nurse is what you really want to do with your life..if it is your calling medtech can make that dream come true for you.

I went to the indy campus and we had a lot of issues going on, but I knew what I was there for and it wasn't going to stop me. I studied and did the work and learned what I needed and guess what it was worth every single penny that I spent. This is just my opinion, but I know alot of the failures from my class who will say oh, medtech is this that or the other but if they really wanted and needed to be a nurse they would be a nurse today just like I am and all the other's from my class who graduated and passed our boards within months of graduating. Check the stats medtech graduates nurses. You can't deny that.

I graduated from medtech March 2010 and two months later I was living my dream of being a nurse! I enjoyed my time at medtech. It was probably the hardest and most rewarding thing that I have ever done. If being a nurse is what you really want to do with your life..if it is your calling medtech can make that dream come true for you.

I attended medtech college in July of 2009 and i loved it, the campus i attended was the indianapolis campus. I went to school mon-fri i was going for medical assisting, now grant you i graduated high school in May 2009 and i know whats its like to have to deal with teachers who dont like you or some of your fellow class mates. Long story short I was considered 3/4 time enrolled i ABSOLUTELY loved my A+P and my medical terminology teacher, but i could not stand my computer teacher. with that being said i took it out on the school saying it was there fault and blah blah blah like some of the rest of you were saying. but i actually left after that quarter and i'm just now going back this time for my RN. so if that dont tell you that it's a good school after leaving and over a year later wanting to go back i dont know what will its not the school per say its really how well you handle yourself. going into it now i'm excited cause i know that there are so many people that are willing to help you acheive your goals in becoming what ever it is you want to be. the people at medtech including the students will encourage you.

I am in my final quarter. I go to the Greenwood campus. I have had no problem with this campus. The NLN accreditation not only is on the school it is also the graduating Nurses to make this happen. There has to be a certain percentage of graduates to pass the NCLEX. So just remember we as students have to help the school get their accreditation by passing the NCLEX

I am in my last quarter at MedTech and I have not had any problems up until now. The last quarter is devoted to an externship, which allows the student an opportunity to gain hands on experience in the field. The staff made promises in the beginning to place students in reliable externship sites. I was also told, that if I had any problems regarding my site that my problems would be addressed and resolved. However, I have yet to see any improvement after numerous complaints about where I was placed. I am extremely disappointed with the career services department! This is my only chance to gain hands on experience before I am out in the field, and I have been let down. I did not take out student loans for this! If you are interested in attending this school, think twice! I wish that I would have researched a little more before attending!

ALL schools are for profit. State funded schools are loosing their funding thanks to Mitch. Quality still matters over quantity. Take advantage of bypassing the other nursing school waitlist. Yes- it is expensive. That said- you still have to bust your butt and act like an adult.

I was an nursing instructor there. I was fired for alledgely beiing inebreated during lecture and urinating on myself.I am a masters prepared nurse with 28 years at the bedside. I WANT STUDENTS TO SUCCEED. i am disgusted

I am enrolled at the MedTech in Fort Wayne. I'm almost done with my first quater. First off, I love this college!!! Before i decided to go to MedTech i called 2 hospitals and talked to their HR and asked them what they thought of MedTech. They all said they hear good things and they have former students who work there. I also called a private practice and they said the same thing! Everybody has a different experience. I recommend this school to everyone i know!!!!

I have been in the Fort Wayne program, we are the first RN class. We have had our program changed 3 times now. Today, we found out the class behind us is graduating with us, 3 months early, but they can't do anything for us. Oh, and by the way, your tuition is going up for the last 6 months and you have to pay for a class that the class behind you is getting for free. How is all of this legal? I just want to be done.

I would like to talk about these post that I read tonight. Number 1 Medtech is a great school, yes there are some teachers that you might not see eye to eye on but its only for 12 weeks. Number 2 yes graduates are having trouble getting on to hospitals like clarion, community, etc. But not all hospitals are like that, it comes down to them wanting to give priority to schools that contribute to them. Number 3 I read a comment from a so called instructor from another state who talked about MTC not requiring pre req classes. No MTC doesnt require them, that is because its built into the schedule so it doesnt take you 3 years to complete your degree. Most programs in the area require that you take a math, A and P 1 and 2 which would take you two semesters and english comp.Ive been at this school for 3 quarters and have found my experience to be pretty decent, its not always fun but we are working toward a goal.

As an nurse holding an MSN but starting as Medical Assistant then graduating from both an ASN the BSN program I have experienced all kinds of faculty and programs. For anyone to think nursing is an 'walk through' program at any institution is not being realistic. You will only get out of ANY program what you put into it. Everyone pays for their education wheather it be non or for profit. It is your CHOICE what program to apply and hopefully attend. We all have our own stories we bring and I am sure going to school as an adult is not easy for anyone.
What concerns me about reading these reviews is I am hoping to teach at MedTech but with students who want to be spoon fed..... get over it - your an adult in an adult world!

This will be my 4th quarter at the Greenwood campus. I dont have anything bad to say about greenwood campus. Anywhere you go you will have issues. Over all I think it is a good school. You people that are complaining over the small stuff maybe you need to look at yourself. Maybe its you and not the school.

First off i have been going to MTC in Greenwood for 4 qtrs...Ive come to realize that the school has come a loooong way.i have been on the deans list every qtr and had perfect attendance 3 of the 4 qtrs.i believe the school is turning around for the better, mostly because of the new administration we've acquired recently.Ive never found the admin. to be rude or disrespectful what so ever. Ive come to be grateful for the financial aid because the few they have in there now know what they are doing.Ive liked all of my teachers. the phlebotomy teacher is amazing and if you haven't been able to have her yet, you'll love her!! don't get me wrong there are those few and far between that were a nightmare, but that's why they aren't there now. i cant say that i dislike the school. now some of the students that attend do make it difficult to stay concentrated to our work, especially when they come in there with an altered state of mind and get sick, then expect no one to know why, and feel sorry for them...sorry but i don't and I'm not the only one that feels that way....so when you decide to take away my learning time as well as my classmates, we have a problem. now as for the chronic absentee students who never show up and expect everyone to hand of their work and the teachers to let them make up missed tests...i don't think so!!! that kind of stuff aggravates me....when a potential student is orientation i think they should have a background check done, i guarantee that a lot of these students wouldn't be there now.
overall, i like the school,it still has a way to go as for working out the kinks,but that goes along with any new place. but i also agree that some of the students do make it unbearable at times....

I currently attend the Greenwood campus and I must say I am happy with my personal experience. No one is ever completely satisfied with EVERY aspect of anything. We are all entitled to our own opinions. From my point of view...On a daily basis I watch students deliberately break rules, disrespect the instructors and other students, and disrupt class. I sit in amazement at the maturity level and attitudes of some classmates. I can say the campus has improved ALOT since I started and I believe faculty is working hard to address concerns. I chose to return to school to get a degree in a field that would provide job stability and MedTech was the right choice for me. I think the biggest thing hurting the school is the students. NEVER SATISFIED WITH ANYTHING! This is college, time to act like adults and realize that when you whine, complain and bring the negative attitudes each and every day, you're not only affecting your own education...you're affecting mine! I feel that alot of instructors may try too hard to accomodate the students instead of taking charge and demanding respect and enforcing the rules. We can attend all the classes in the world to further our education and increase the chance of obtaining a good job. Without the professionalism, maturity and respect for others that education is worth nothing! MedTech will provide the education, but can you provide the personal skills to get past the interview?

Wow !!!!!
I was looking forward to applying at the Greenwood Campus for the Pharmacy Cert. Sounds like I need to talk to the Indianapolis Campus. They did not get slammed as much as Greenwood. ( which is to bad because, I live closer to that facility) But, not really sure what or where to go. If anyone has attended this campus, please respond. Thank you

GREENWOOD campus- 0 stars
INDIANAPOLIS campus - 5 stars

Ok So I have the scoop on both schools Greenwood and Indy's MedTech. I went to both. I only have 7 weeks left of class then I'm done with my degree in Medical Assisting. I started out at Greenwood... All I can say is BAD! I switched for a reason. It truely is a joke there. All of the teachers are terrible with the exception of 2. My clincals teacher couldnt even pronounce "virus". COME ON! I seriously think they hire the teachers off the street! The biggest problem is that their MA program IS NOT... I repeat IS NOT accredited!!! Dont listen to the posts earlier. When I signed up they brought me in to talk about the school and they told me how it was accredited and why that is important. Turns out 4 days after classes start they make everyone sign a paper stating that we understand that the MA program is not accredited and CAN NOT take the CMA exam after you graduate. I was pissed and eventually switched but greenwood made it harder than hell for me to switch.

Indy's campus is TOTALLY different! :) I love all the classes here. The teachers are all VERY knowledgable. I am actually learning things. I have developed friendships with the teachers. They make it a priority to help you as a student. And they are CAAHEP accredited and i have my CMA exam scheduled in a few months :) My teachers are helping me inside of class and outside of class to help me on the test. I LOVE it here. And you will too. Switching was the best thing I have ever done!

I am currently in my fifth quarter for RN at the Greenwood campus and I feel I have to stick up for this institution. I will say that at first our experience was chaotic but they worked extremely hard to correct the problems. My professors are professional, educated and honestly care about us as people and our future as nurses. I have learned a ton and I come from a background with no medical education. I will also say that Medtech not being NLN accredited has been a nerve wracking for us, but we feel comfortable that we will get it. The NLN will be visiting us in March 2010, and as I understand it will determine that then. Medtech has been working really hard to get everything together for that. As for it being "ghetto"... some of the students are definately "ghetto", but you cant really list that as a con because you will have that at any school and the definition of 'ghetto' is really subject to personal opinion. The staff is professional. This school will get you where you want to go, and when you get there you get to learn it all over again in the mannor that the institution you are working so desires. On here, you ask 10 different people and will get 10 different answers.So if you are thinking about attending this school, get off this website and check it out for yourself

Has anyone taken this major? I am debating on this because unfortunately where I live (Fort Wayne, IN) there is no schools for Medical Laboratory techician that isn't 2 hrs away. I would like to know if anyone has experience in this field with MedTech or if it is even worth it. Will an Associate degree from MedTech be acknowledged in the Medical field? Is it worth the cost?

Some people that have negative comments about MedTech are people that actually know what they are talking about. I am a current student of the Indianapolis campus and I am getting a little disappointed at how unprofessional the faculty can be. I am really considering attending another college actually. I am making straight A's in all my classes and I carry myself very well in school. Some of the negative comments made about this college are true and some are false. I keep to myself and I don't "act a fool". I sit back and I just look and listen to how some of these people act and it's disappointing. A teacher will talk about her personal life for half an hour before we finally get to take our test, there IS favoritism shown towards other students from teachers, people talk during tests and NOTHING is said, simply because they are "teacher's pets", etc. Some students act really immature and I have actually seen students argue and get loud with one another in class and NOTHING is said by the teacher, because the teacher wants to be "cool" with the students. You know, heaven forbid these people get told not to act like that in a classroom! I am not going to pay ALOT of money to go to a college where it's like I'm in high school all over again and where teachers act unprofessional. I am paying to get an education--not to hear students carrying on acting like a 5 year old in class (with nothing being said about it) and I'm not paying to listen to a teacher's life story every day of my life. On the other hand though, there are some students that complain that they don't understand the work they are doing and they actually try to get the teacher in trouble and they gripe constantly during class and all that, yet they don't study their material and just want everything done for them--and that's not how it works. If you want good grades you have to work for those grades and take the time to attend the tutoring that is assigned for each class. I will say that this school tries hard to get you the kind of schedule that you need and the people in the office are very helpful and nice. It's just some of the teachers and students that I have a problem with. Like I said, I am a very good student--I stay quiet, I know how to handle myself, I get good grades and do my work, and I just sit back and observe everything and sometimes I'm appauled that these students are going to be working in the medical field and I would hate to be their boss. It's not just the expelled students or the students that don't do good in school that complain and I am proof of just that. Hopefully, it gets better because if it doesn't, I am out. Good luck to everyone.

Like I said, I am a very good student--I stay quiet, I know how to handle myself, I get good grades and do my work, and I just sit back and observe everything and sometimes I'm appauled that these students are going to be working in the medical field and I would hate to be their boss. It's not just the expelled students or the students that don't do good in school that complain and I am proof of just that. Hopefully, it gets better because if it doesn't, I am out. Good luck to everyone.
