I am hoping to get into Ivy Tech next fall. I am finishing my co-reqs right now. I live in the Indianapolis area and am trying to decide which campus I want to go to. I have heard that Columbus and Greencastle are on probation, so that leaves me with Indy and Bloomington to choose from.
I have a friend who at the Indy campus and I have heard nothing but horror stories from her over the Ob and Peds portion of the curriculum. She advised me not to even go to Indy because of the high fail rate for this class. I talked to a few other people who said the same thing. They said that it is pretty much self study- the instructors do not lecture in class. They said you don't get your schedules until the first day OF class and that the homework is ridiculous, also that the tests are extremely difficult. They told me that you will have a quiz over NEXT weeks stuff before you are even tested over the current material. (what???). this seems kind of crazy, I can't imagine this class would really be like this. she did say that the OB part isn't so bad, but it is mostly the PEDS part. I am going into nursing, in hopes to do Peds but I am afraid this program will ruin it for me.
Does anyone have any advice? I think I have convinced myself to try for Bloomington. I have a 90 in my teas, and all A's. I guess I am hoping that someone can tell me it's not as bad as I've heard.
