Central Ohio Technical College Reviews
I decided to return to COTC in 2012 to get my associates in Human Services . I was 47 years old - with health problems. But I knew I had to do more with my life! I studied hard, I was determined to graduate with good grades. I graduated 2014, Phi Thata kappa - with a 3.7 gpa. After much discussion with my husband , I decided I wanted to come back to school and get my RN. My father passed away in 2016 , of stage 4 colon cancer, progression to liver and lungs. I held his hands last week of his life! At that point, I was angry when he passed away! But on the Anniversary of his passing 5/10/17 . I decided I needed to go back and get my RN. License, why ? Because everyone needs their hands held during the last days! Everyone needs someone to care, and be there! I am that person. My compassion and love for people- rewards me . Patients smiles is the best feeling in the world .
While initially getting accepted into this 2-year technical school, I had great hope for what was to come of my future. All of my professors that I have had were all incredibly nice and supportive, however once I began my second semester the class materials were lacking. Believe me, I am all for an "easy A," but considering that I am spending thousands of dollars on an advanced education, the course materials just do not seem to add up.
I’m still currently enrolled, took some time off to have my daughter. The school is wonderful with being patient while I pay off some debt to go back in the winter semester! The teachers and staff are wonderful, always willing to help and watch you succeed! Always will recommend this school.
