    So I came back to read the comments because I knew the negativity would be real. It's saddens me to see people attack others who choose institutions to best fit their needs that's how it was for me. When my local community college did me in. Anyway..... So yesterday was a trying day because it was the day my class names were to be sent to the state and they were for sure. I'm not going into details on how I know, and that's not possible because the school was closed. I was there and I got my transcripts so did my classmates. Thank God. To top it off I helped my classmates behind some of them get letters signed to test out for LPN again I'm not going into that, but it's a special form required by the state to be signed by the school. I did a lot of leading yesterday and hell of alot fighting. That's just me though.

    I am am thankful Application put into the state, fingerprints are getting done this morning, NCLEX will be paid soon and yes I still have my job waiting bloop bloop.

    As as for the poster I am so sorry this all happened. This school was 50 years old so it was a great school in some areas. Unfortunately cooperate got very greedy and instead of putting the monies into the school they let the little people take the big hit. Never give up on nursing. If you read my previous posts I fought tooth and nail to the very end literally. If I find out more info I would be willing to share. To anyone. I can't even be happy really because this is so emotionally. I made great relationships with people behind me and I feel so sad.

    Yes I am pleased because I did the work. The same books and testing systems we used just like everyone else. I am pleased because my professors are some of the Best Nurses that have degrees from some of the best schools in my area, and they taught me very well. I am pleased because I went through the nursing struggle like everyone else, and the struggle is real. I am pleased because I graduated and will receive my degree, and I am very proud of it and I am not ashamed. I will pass the NCLEX because I was smart enough to pass my tests in class. I passed my Exit Hesi, first try 1193, and I am very confident.

    A bit premature you say! With the sweetest voice I have right now I'm not living in a fairy tale land nor did I just come from the planet Mars. My 2 PP post says a lot about how I feel. I just completed my program 2 days ago. So of course this is upsetting. At the same time the doors are not closed my grades are in the system, and I have the faith that everything will be complete for me and my graduating class. Most schools don't give you your degree until after your ceremony so yeah that takes a while. In addition I work for one of the best healthcare systems that's not premature its a fact. Yes I will become a RN and that's a fact.

    I have always heard bad things about ITT and other nursing schools so to each their own rather accredited or not. I made a choice and I am happy with that decision.

    You better believe I will be back. Jer. 29:11

    If you don't stand for something you will fall for anything. Your entitled to your opinion and so am I. My faith is to strong to feel defeated.

    I just finished class Thursday and I am nervous. I completed the ADN program and I am praying to God that they hurry up and send my name to the Florida board of nursing. I also inquired about my transcripts I need to load up on at least 4 of them. I completed my preq's from a community college and got into the program and it did not work out. So I ended up at ITT Breckinridge. I have come this far and all I want is my name to be sent off to the state. Grades close on the 5th of September, and my name will be sent to Florida Board of Nursing.

    I must say this and I'm only talking about my "program". I really was pleased with ITT-Breckinridge program at the Fort. Lauderdale campus. My Professors were excellent. I was able to get the skills and tools that I needed to make it this far and pass. The school is expensive but like I said I came in with preq's and I got a $25,000 scholarship. Therefore I won't be paying $50,000+ which I know is ridiculous for an ASN/ADN. I have about $13,000 in loans and I am cool with that. I wanted too attend another state university or college but once you Withdraw and or failed a science attempt it's really hard to get into one. That's how I ended up at ITT and pretty much a lot of students did to. I hate when I see people post "Poor unexpected Student" or believe me and my peers have no skills and didn't research. I did my research and to be honest at the time my school "Fort. Lauderdale" was in very good standing. Most of us are 2nd degree students or LPN's we are no less different than any other nursing student.

    ITT corporate office made a big mess of things and some of my classmates may end up without a degree. I pray to God that they will make it through and finish there or at another program. As for me I'm praying that God will allow this school to

    1. Send my name to the state so I can test for NCLEX. 2.Release my transcripts 3.Give me my degree.

    I have applied to UTA so I can be locked into a BSN program. I have a good chance of getting in because again I have credits from my community college, and they do allow you start if you haven't taken your NCLEX yet. You do however need to pass it at some point before you are able to continue on.

    This is just a big mess. I was so happy I finished and I can't even celebrate because of all this. I can't even sleep thinking about this. I just have to keep telling myself God didn't bring me this far to leave me. I pray for us all.

    Here you go and this can help anyone here in this situation.

    Just dropping in and thought I would let anyone in the South Florida (Ft. Lauderdale) area know that, I am happy so far. I'm 4 weeks into the semester and I am doing great. Compared to the previous ADN program I was in. We use most of the same books my former community college uses. The instructors actually have time for you, and I leave the school feeling like I have learned something, and I can confidently ask for help. All smiles here.

    I went to orentation today, and I loved the whole set up so far. In my state (Florida) There is no issues with this program via Florida Board of Nursing. I will be able to sit for my NCLEX just like any other nursing student. As far as the cost I was one of the lucky ones that received a few scholarships . I will say that after I graduate I will 6,000 in loans to pay back Thank God. Say what you want end of the day I can sit for NCLEX, I know what school I will get my BSN from. I know that I have a position waiting on me.

    You just made me feel like your the Lioness of this board and I just tormented your cubs.

    Here we go. Ugh...

    Fear is just fear itself number one.

    Number 2 when I finished this thread I meant to give you a shout out because I noticed you frequent the board giving your advice and I thought that it was cool. I guess there was a reason why I forgot. I know your a North student and maybe you might not have had difficulties I don't know.

    What I do know is Allnurses is a site where we can voice are opinions rather you like it or not. Yes I'm sure that the members have all heard the horror stories that goes with the territory. So just because you maybe frequent flyer on this board is it possible you have an issue with me giving my opinion. I know this because I lurk and I don't comment because you always jump right in. I'm just saying you have the answer for everything. did you catch that!

    Ladies and gents I'm not going to apologize about what I just posted. I felt it would be informational to some and to others you may careless. Like I said Good luck, God bless and Pray.

    I have worked as a PCA for several years. My opinion is that you will have the knowledge of patient care, medical terminology, & how to properly work within the units. You pretty much learn the basics of nursing care. I think having a your foot in the door is helpful when it comes to transitioning within your facility. So being a CNA/PCA is beneficial in that manner.

    I'm glad to see this thread is still going on. I really needed to read this post. I too failed my first class. I decided to try other nursing programs but, none of them made me feel comfortable. I can only explain it like buying a good pair of shoes you know the kind that looks great on your feet, and feels so dam good your like oh yeah... I'm going to funk these!! Lol that's how I feel about the program am in.

    On the other hand I'm like yikes.... because I'm at one of the strictest campuses out off the whole entire college system in my county. I can do strict but sometimes it is way... to overboard. That played a huge part in me coming back to this school. However; I decided to bite the bullet. Now I can move forward. I will start in January 2015 a year later.

    "Failure is the opportunity to begin again this time more wisely". Henry Ford.

    God Bless everyone on this thread and don't give up on your dreams.

    @ Be(you)tiful Hello How has the program been In your opinion? Are all the horror stories true? Also by having to retrack does that mean you had to go to LPN school and are you now an LPN? Just trying to make sure im fully understanding. Any info your willing to give will be greatly appreciated.

    To answer you question. No I am not an LPN. You are giving what some of us call "1 golden ticket" that is the first time you enter the program. You want to do your very best to not fail. If you do fail like myself you will have to go to through a process of taking the TABE reading test, Skills Review (that's if you are out of the clinical setting for more than 6 weeks) which you will be. Also you will take SLS class geared towards nursing.
    I would suggest if you can get the Attachment 15711book and start reading Chapters 1,2,3,6,39,28,29,30, as a start you will be ahead of most. You can fail by less that 1/2 a point. The Professors don't play. Also The Fundmamentals of Success book by Nugent & Vitale. Will help to train you in thinking and answering nursing questions correctly. That's my advice to you all.

    To Piggyback off of dream61792 is saying. I feel it's not what you know it it is who you know as well. I'm a former employee of Memorial and Broward Health, and when I went back to do my clinicals with BC. I was happy and surprised that I received business cards from former ADN nurses who are now BSN and MSN nurses who would love to hire me as well. Mind you I was in Process 1 when this happened. I also feel that no matter what school you go to all that matters is that once you pass your NCLEX that's all that matters. Each nursing school for profit or not is looking for one thing and is our money and we are looking to accomplish one thing that is to get our state board license. That is the jackpot.

    Your state board license is the golden ticket. If you can pass that then whatever school and studying you did paid off.

    I have now decided to retrack for January 2015 because I've visited other schools and only feel comfortable at BC. Even though I'm a South campus student Lord knows how I feel about that. The only thing I can do is to push forward and make it happen.

    Also... dream61792 I agree with you and I am sure Miami hospitals feels like that about the schools in their area. The way I see it is all nursing schools make you go through hell and high water to get through their program. Nursing isn't a degree that comes easy. That's just my 2 cents.

    Don't give up. I haven't taken the NCLEX yet but, I know someone who took it 5 times as well. She passed on the 6th try. It must be frustrating, but I say be encourage. Delay does not mean denial. Hugs to you and keep studying. The fact that you have not given up means your a fighter and you want this. It will happen soon. Best of luck and God bless.
