I am an NEIT nursing grad... We have all been very well received within the nursing community, have all gotten good jobs, and all given a great name to the program. I have had coworkers say they will vouch for an NEIT grad anytime after working with only a few. I don't know if the new changes there will be for the better, but I do know I worked my ass off in that program and it worked it's ass off for me. Most of my patients don't even realize I am a new grad nurse, neither do some of my co-workers whom are seasoned nurses. The program, and namely a few professors that have since left the college, couldn't have prepared me better to go out into the workforce confidently and adequately prepared. Does the college's philosophy suck overall as far as how they reign in students, it sure does. Is it pretty damn expensive, yep. BUT, being a pioneer of sorts for a new program and seeing the feedback from my now fellow nurses is AMAZING. I am proud of my accomplishments there, and I am proud of the roots of this program. I just hope that these changes don't destroy what could have been an amazing program going through the years.
I wish the best of luck to EVERYONE pursueing nursing. It is a beautiful field where you can actually make a difference in the lives of people in their weakest and most vulnerable moments. Don't let all the pettiness of nursing school politics start you off in this field of genuine caring with an axe to grind or an attitude of entitlement, it's not worth it. Work on being a sponge for all that you can learn and really inspect the work you will be doing. If you always want someone to blame, point a finger at, or put down. Pursue law school. Or get a reality show, just don't come by my bedside please...
