my school breaks each semester into 2 8-week courses, so I just finished the first class of the second year (of 2 year program). So we studied, stressed, passed it, and passed clinical. 2 people flunked it and cried. NOW, we have already started the next class and the next clinical-and it's a harder class and we need to concentrate on it-and the director walks in and says the final is invalid because of accusations of cheating and we must all retake it this friday.
Now, I would have to have a CVA during the test not to pass the class, and I can hold on to my B and miss many questions, but it still seems unfair. There have been rumors and allegations of cheating all along in the program, and nothing's been done about it. Now, after the admin. doing nothing for a full year, they decide to cancel a final for all of us.
Anyway, this sucks. It is especially bad because our whole class is ripped apart now. We all suspect each other. Does this happen in other schools
? Are many RNs cheating types (despite the public's trust in us as a profession)?? I've seen more cheaters in nursing school
than I ever did as an undergraduate in Liberal Arts (maybe just because the stakes are higher?).
