Hey guys I graduated 5 months ago from a nursing school
in Indiana. I still have not been allowed to take boards because my school will not release my certificate of completion to the state. They have have a NCLEX test prep thing that they want us to pass before they will release our info. Anyways I actually did it and you have to get a certain score to pass it. I ended up being 1% alway from what they want and they told me I would have to spend another month studying.
So I got to thinking is this even legal for them to withhold my information. Technically i'm done with the nursing program, and even have my degree hanging on my wall. And this extra test prep is counting as continuing education.

It was not a requirement when I signed up for the 2 year program, students used to test 2 weeks after our last semester. This is something new they sprang on us a month prior to our last day of school.
Its been 5 months now and only a handful of students have got their certificates. And i have a letter stating "he has successfully completed all academic requirements and is consider a graduate of the program".
Alot of my classmates are just as frustrated as me and we are starting to look around to see if there are any legal actions we can take against our college to get them to release our information to the state board.
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.
