I also posted this under the Georgia Perimeter College link. I was the one that started that one. I do have to say that GPC is difficult, but as you see below, it is changing. There are still a lot of us left from Aug '06 and it is so much better to get your RN license (with a little more time) than an LPN license. God bless good luck and I hope everything works out well.
Well....Update time...from the one that originally started this post.
Things at GPC are slowing making a change for the better. We have had several talks with professionals and they have listened to us (the students) about issues that we see as being problems with the program. Our class has actually kept most of the students thus far. We have 50 left out of I think 74, and we also have many students at the Lawrenceville campus left too. The new class of Fundamentals is doing very well also. There have been changes made all around, but as most can see, it does take time.
I am very glad that the instructors (most of them) are listening to our concerns and I hope that it continues this way.
I have come to realize that most all nursing programs
are tough and you must give 200% dedication to pass and although there are many things that we can groan about, there are many things we can be thankful for (like being able to get a job right out of nursing school
and having lots of clinical experience by graduation).
I am now averaging a B in Med/Surg, but it hasn't been easy. I do hope that everyone that looks at this willtalk with other students (as many as possible) and learn from different aspects of the program and decide
. Weigh your options (good vs bad).
Good luck to each and every one of you and I hope and pray for you all to succeed and help to stomp out this nursing shortage.
