I agree with Kjj007, what semester are you in? I hear a lot of frustration in your post, and want you to know that you're probably not alone. I've just finished my 3rd semester, and while there have been frustrating times, I look back on those days of Adult Care 1 and Patho and am amazed at how little I knew back then. All
are frustrating, and knowing that you're in an accelerated program so already have a bachelor's degree from somewhere, wouldn't you agree that there are frustrating teachers everywhere
? Nursing school
is tough, as it should be, wouldn't you want someone who had to work
for their degree to take care of you or your loved one someday, or would you rather have someone who just coasted through and got their license from a cereal box? I'll take the hard-worker any day.
All I'm saying is to hang in there, it gets better as you get more accustomed to the online format and the NCLEX-style questions. Those questions are tough, but it's training us to be prepared for the NCLEX, something that some of the other, easier, for-profit schools don't do very well, and it shows in 1st time pass-rates. It'll pay off in the end. You'll do fine if you and your classmates keep a positive attitude and lean on eachother for support along the way.
The program has already come a long way since it's inception in 2009, and will continue to get better if people like you and I work to make it better. Give your feedback to nursing coordinator there to help make positive changes, we have a unique opportunity to help mold a new program into something great.
Also, without having to attend on-campus lectures at specific times, you'll have a BSN in less than 16 months... Indiana's only online 16-month BSN program, and you're a part of it. Can't complain about that...
