Its best to not fight with the college to avoid trouble and just bite the bullet and finish the prep course! It may seem unnecessary, but if the college has made it a rule, than there is not much you can do. Congrats on graduating though! Just keep thinking of the end result!! You can do it!

However, As per the Terms of Service we cannot offer legal advice. Without a signed binding contract the school can decide what ever they wish for graduating curriculum. It's their school their rules.
I wish you the best.

And the reason my college is doing is because our program isn't accredited so they think if they put us thru this extra bit we will have better pass rates on boards which I understand but the program is ridiculous that they want us to do.
Aha. That explains it. The nursing board is correct to let them do this.
One more reason for people to check out the school before signing up and paying. Now we know what school you attended...and you better hope you never leave Indiana, because even if you pass NCLEX there and get licensed there, a lot of other states will not grant you a license by reciprocity because your program doesn't have national accreditation.
