I was in ADN program and when I didnt pass one class in the second year, I decided not to retake the class but I changed to LPN program and graduated. This school accepts about 300 students and they weed out most students and about 70 students end up graduating. Clinical instructors use dirtiest trick to fail the students. They are not there to teach students, but they intimidate students and scare the hell out of them and make their life miserable. So I would say yes, I think if you go to OCC, you are gambling with your money because you never know whether or not you are going to graduate. Like I said before, some clinical instructor will wait until the 6th week out of 7 week clinical period to tell you she's going to flunk the student, and never give student a chance to improve. I think this school should be more strict with admission criteria so that they only accept students who has good chance of graduating.
I went to different college for my LPN to RN program, and this school accepts only 100 students but we have to take the NET test and I think our passing score is higher than other colleges. This school is very very student friendly. Instructors are there to assist students to learn and they never intimidate students. This school make sure we learn everything we need to know before we graduate. And in each class, we have to take ERI test, it is a comprehensive test of the class, and it gives us an idea what areas we are weak and we need to concentrate more to study for the boards. I think more than 80 students graduated this year. I had really good experience at this school, and I feel pretty confident that I'm going to have a good transition in the real world.
