I don't know the official name for the test that caused so much trouble and grief last year but can find out. Just curious anyway. Will start school in Ann Arbor in Sept. A friend I work with has a daughter and MANY or her friends who were either eliminated from the program at HFCC last year or quit and went elsewhere because of this exam which was said to have to do with critical thinking skills but very difficult and illogical for many A students. I'm told parents of some of these students challenged the management of the school to require the faculty to pass the test but it fell on deaf ears. Many of the affected students went to an RN program in Toledo somewhere and were heartily welcomed, or so I'm told. Others dropped nursing entirely - I'm told many were A students but that this exam was an unexpected surprise. I know many schools
are now utilizing third party exams which closely approximate NCLEX in order to help ensure success but it didn't sound like the exam described to me was related to any specific course in the HFCC curriculum; perhaps just a theoretical attempt to evaluate critical thinking skills independently of nursing subjects. Hopefully they've devised some way to prepare students better for this exam. Although I don't aspire to attend school at HFCC the incident has been a matter of great curiosity. Also, I don't believe everything I hear but have had great confidence for many years in the folks from whom this information came.
