Hey keepmovinglpn, I hope for your sake you went to another school!! GPC is the worst nursing school out there. All the 2006 reviews are correct. They treat your horrible and you just have to take it. Ask any hospital which nurses seem the most calm and collected. You will hear that the student nurses at gpc are so anxious and nervous and scared for their lives. They are terrified of making just one little mistake for fear they will be failed in clinicals. I have had to put up with a lot, but not compared to some other students. I just can't imagine what they are going through. As for me, I feel like I am in HELL and can't get out and I have no self-esteem left. They've made a few changes but they need to make a whole lot more!!!
No, I don't feel like it has improved other than we have 3 chances to pass our check off skills. Some of the teachers are helpful but most are not and they are mean about it and expect you to take it. I have heard of some horror stories that are pretty bad here that has happened to other students currently. Some of the teachers don't teach and just read the powerpoints. I have had to take some major abuse from the teachers but nothing like some have had it. I feel sorry for them. It seems like if they don't like you they find a way to fail you in clinicals, they follow you around and wait for you to make a mistake. Not all are like this, about half. Some are truly wonderful but if you get the others, may God help you because you better pray real hard. The administration does nothing to help you, they act like they care but in the end they don't really care at all. They don't seem to care that their students are being treated unfairly or bad. Some, yes, may have good experiences but for the majority they do not but are unwilling to say anything about it. We haven't had to watch videos for check offs on how to do them but I hear the spring class does. How can you learn a skill from a video? It's just showing you what it looks like to pass the skill but how do you learn "how" to do the skill? If they showed a video on "how" to do the skill, I can see that but they don't. I have heard that is a complaint from some of the people in the spring class. This is an honest truthful review and I hope people listen. It has been a horrible experience and I wish I had never come here. If some of the stuff that has happened to other people ever got out to the state, the school would lose its accreditation for sure. I feel like I am in HELL!!
I am looking for someone to give me an honest review of the ADN program at Georgia Perimeter College. I have read/heard many, many horrible comments about the program there. Also, I understand that they were on the verge of loosing accreditation, and had to increase NCLEX pass numbers, and that their way of accomplishing that was to fail out everyone who might not pass. At any rate, I know that GPC's program was quite bad in mid 2000's, but who's there now? Has it improved? Are you teachers good/helpful? How many people are dropping from your class? Would you go there if you had it to do again? Just looking for some advice... Thanks
Kier7141, Please do yourself a favor and go somewhere else. I have completed my first year of nursing school here and I wish that I had gone somewhere else. About half of the teachers are just mean or they are taking out their insecurities on the students. Either way it sucks!! The administrators act like they want to help you but when it comes right down to it they don't and don't care. Once you're in you can't get out, no other school will take these credits. Plus it's only an ADN program and most hospitals will only hire a BSN. Then if you want to get into gpc's BSN program, they require you to work a yr in a hospital. Well, how are you going to do that if the hospitals don't hire ADN graduates. I have lost my self esteem and feel helpless. The reviews from 2006 are right on. Believe them!! I wish I had. If you don't care about your self-esteem and want to be treated like a child and have to just take things up the rear then go here. I have never been treated in such a way, and I can't believe I have to take it. I am a good student who tries very hard and has good grades, but who cares... they decimate you. Do not go here!!!
