I was suppose to start school for my 3rd and last time after 3 years. I went to my meeting with the board to try to get in. I was so motivated and knew I had it in the bag. Well apparently I did not. I went in the meeting and... Read More

    They CAN NOT ask you questions regarding your children, childcare, or relationship status! Ever! Report them, right negative reviews and move on to a new school. Best of luck!

    I just want to thank everyone for the support and all of the words! I just knew this wasn't right! And I feel like what I do is my business. They did go too far and I will report them Monday morning.

    I was suppose to start school for my 3rd and last time after 3 years. I went to my meeting with the board to try to get in. I was so motivated and knew I had it in the bag. Well apparently I did not. I went in the meeting and sat down and the ladies started grilling me with questions telling me
    How I couldn't do school cuz I have 2 kids
    What ima do when My kids father(my fiancÚ) decides he doesnt want to pay the bills anymore
    What ima do when me and My kids father break up
    Who gonna watch the kids when my kids father decides he doesn't want to watch them anymore How 2 years is too long of a program for me
    And how I need to do medical assistant because they get paid the same ($14)
    Then they asked me where do I work
    How much do I get paid
    Who pays my insurance
    What year is my car
    How much is my car note is
    Did I do the math about how I am going to pay for everything and going to school! How I need a plan! All of this to get back into school that I will be paying for out of my pocket.
    A $23,000 program. They have given me my validation and I am not returning to this school. Is it just me or is this too personal. I left in tears and in shock that they do this to people.
    I feel like they were trying to tell me I am not good enough to be a nurse.

    I agree, the questions were over the line. I have heard the schools around here also try to discourage working while going to school. However, this is the real world and unless you still live at home with your parents, and they are willing to pay your bills, most folks have to work. Also, I would think schools would welcome working/responsible adults and try to accommodate them. I have heard so many stories where young adults enter the program fresh out of HS, complete the program, work a year or two, only to decide they do not want to be Nurses.

    To play Devils Advocate, the school interviews are likely designed to put people in the program who have the highest probability of passing. This makes the school look better when they have a high success rate. This also allows them to demand higher tuition and possibly get more money from the State.

    I defiantly agree but they have no way of knowing how I would have performed! But I guess it was not meant to be and that's fine.
