Graduation rate is the percentage of institution’s new-entering, first-time, first-year undergraduate students who complete their program within 150% of the published time for the program.

I have to say thank you to Lincoln Tech, for providing me the opportunity to continue on my journey to nursing. The program is expensive but was worth every penny. The part time program allowed me time to work, go to school, do homework and spend a little time with family. The license practical nursing program requires undivided attention and a commitment. It was not easy but definitely impacting. They have helped me successfully find employment and are always there to answer any questions I may have. Lincoln Tech sometimes gets poor representation from there students. It boils down really to what you put into your education you will get in return. Implementing the Green Light program with ATI I believe is truly what help me pass my NCLEX. So if you have a full time life I recommend part time school and give it all you got for 2 years. In the end you will appreciate every sacrifice, tear, and loss of sleep due to studying. Thanks to all the great teachers and wonderful staff.

I have not yet completed my program of choice, but I wanted to write a review because I am already impressed with LTI. I'll update after I graduate.I began the CNST program on March 1st. The program assumes you have never used a computer a day in your life. It starts off with the very basics, and I do mean basics! There's a video tutorial for how to move a window! Nevertheless, I enjoyed the class and still learned a few things I didn't know before.Regrettably, I ran into trouble toward the end of March. Unknown to me, the year you turn 24 is not enough for FASFA. Your 24th birthday needs to have actually passed. Had I known that, I wouldn't have enrolled. They couldn't override the dependency status, so my choices were drop out temporarily or pay $900+ monthly until June, when the 2018 - 2019 FASFA would allow me to be classed as independent via my age. If you've done any research on LTI, you know it's a for-profit school, so you'd think they'd want to a student to choose the latter, right?No. One of the advisors of the education office outright told me it was better to drop out and come back than live paycheck to paycheck while struggling to make high payments (I was living paycheck to paycheck with normal payments, which I guess only further proves her point). I was heartbroken, but I didn't have a choice. I dropped out and agreed to return in May. A week later, I got a letter in the mail, stating I was being charged $4,000 for withdrawing. I was furious! How could they charge me for withdrawing when I was not only advised by the staff to do so, but directly for the reason of financial struggle?! What kind of trick was this?!Thankfully, someone close to me with a cooler temper than mine suggested I call the school before I exploded. Long story short, they told me not to pay anything. Since I was coming back within a year, they'd credit half the charges and the other half would be thrown in with the new charges for that FASFA. By that time, the charges would be overdue, so I was told to call back during the last week of April (also the week of my birthday) for them to change that in my file.Considering this situation is my fault (it was a genuine mistake, but still my fault), they're not required to give two cents about the matter. Instead, they told me to go the route that would save me the most money and keep me from falling into a sinkhole. There was no argument about the withdrawal charges and their business office got back to me practically the moment the staff of that department arrived for the day. I was just pleasantly blown away they're trying to make this easy for me. If this is really the level of dedication they have toward their students, I look forward to returning in May. It's just a matter of the waiting game for now.

This school really helped me propel my career in tech. You do get what you put in and that goes for any school. My suggestion to students here and prospective ones please try to get a job in tech WHILE you're going to school and also get your windows certifications asap.. you'll thank me later. I graduated in 2009 I was sad to see that the old oak tree rd location is no longer Lincoln tech. By the way Michelle Scanlan was the best instructor when I was going there. I wish they would offer a degree program soon.

My brother graduated in November and still has not received his diploma/certificate. Every time he calls or goes to the school thry just gove him the run around. They play the blame game with each other but no one is taking responsibility. The school was always on top of payments but refuses to give answers about his certificate. No one returns calls or emails. Dont waste your time or money with this school.

If you're looking for a place that will equip you with the necessary tools to start your nursing career, this is your place. As a 2011 graduate, I was so pleased with the hours, location, duration of the program, and the education, that I'm looking forward to the day the center begins its first RN program. A good place to start!
