It sounds like your program has a problems with discrimination--I am entering a Accelerated Second Degree Program this May for a BSN. It is at a Private Catholic University--I did enquire about this type of Discrimmination--The Nursing School Dept Head--Told me that No-one in the Second Deg Program has ever failed--And if an instructor was using gender as a device of discrmination --they would remove that instructor quickly.--It should raise a red flag to administration if all their male students are failing the program.
Initially we were told that there has been about a 10% attrition rate. So, out of our program group of about 25 we figured that maybe there was a possibility of one or two of us needing to drop.
Meanwhile our group picked up four students from previous cohorts or from students who were going part time and only had the clinical portion left. We lost three of them to dropping.
One was dismissed for failing a clinical, (woman) the next one to leave was a guy, (I suspect he was coerced out by his clinical instructor who is a "odd" professor who seems to have personality issues-oh, she has her PhD in psych nursing).
The next man out was dismissed from a theory class based upon classroom conflict and plagerism, (his dismissal was black and white and policy).
The next two men were dismissed this clinical.
Knowing that the woman who was dismissed for failing clinical has never returned nor was she allowed to return I highly doubt that these two men will be allowed to return.
One of them was completely finished with all courses, (minus one) totally 107 quarter credit hours, several years and nearly 40,000 dollars worth of education. He was dropped with only one class left. ???
Saddened by this, and dismayed at my future alma mata...
