Hi, I am looking into Jersey college school of Nursing in Jacksonville, Florida.
I have talk with this school for the last 6 weeks on the phone. I have fax over all my paper work. I paid for my application fee all ready.So the next step, I will be going down to the school first week of April to sit down face to face. What I want to know has anyone ever gone to this school and finish? Was it hard? where they helpful? Do they try fail people for no go reason?
I will be relocating to Florida for school, the cost is $24,000 at this time. They will only take for my classes. I am okay with that. Please respone help follow LPN to RN out, Thanks everyone.

I began this program in 2014 and have almost completed the program. However, my class started with 60+ and from that original class, we have less than 20 students. The school constantly changes policies without any communication and despite what administration says, attempts to fail as many people as possible. The midterms and finals for first and second term compose the bulk of your grade (94%), third term is less (midterm 30%, final 37%), fourth term (midterm 25%, final 42%), and fifth term isn't much different. If you test poorly, this isn't the school for you. If you expect professional instructors, this isn't the school for you. There have been fist fights between students in the school and the instructors speak badly about one another to the students. The lack of professionalism is glaring. The Campus Director, -----------------------(sp?), walks around the halls all day on his cell phone
, being proactive about nothing. He marginalizes issues for the sake of PR without actually addressing the problem. The school is living in the 1990's. Grades aren't posted online or even emailed, I have rec'd grades on post it-notes before. You can't take notes on tablets or laptops. There is no structure at this school, no consistency, and little to no instruction. Success is student driven, this should be billed as a self taught school. There are few clinical sites with the exception of nursing homes. You will not build on your existing skills as a nurse, you may even lose skills.
There is a reason there is a wait list at other schools and no wait list at Jersey College School of Nursing.
