    Hinds graduate some well trained and knowledgeable students in return.

    A lot of the problem is that one of the instructors was being very selective in how she taught and how she graded papers. Sometimes she didn't want to answer questions after a lecture and left the room before students had time to more easily understand the content.

    Hinds is terrible. I wouldn't suggest anyone to go to Hinds Nursing Allied or Hinds period. A nursing instructor at UMC told me that, UMC's program is a lot easier than Hinds. I would suggest for people to apply at UMC or MS College rather than applying at Hinds. Hinds is a no no!

    I really want to go to Hinds Nursing school, but all of the negative feedback may be telling me something. I want to go to UMC also. It is a bad reflection on Hinds when a large amount of student fail in the same semester. I know the Lord will bless me at the school of my choice. Any suggestions are highly welcomed.

    I went to Hinds Nursing Allied and I know from experience. I posted on the other thread "the Clarion Ledger reports on Hinds failing rates," on how I felt about Hinds Nursing Allied. Another lady did also. Go and read that thread. If you can refrain from going to Hinds do so. Apply to UMC or MS college, because you will regret going to Hinds. A instructor at UMC personally told me that UMC's program is easier than Hinds and that Hinds was crazy! Run from Hinds!

    I would suggest monitoring the pass rate and do your research on either school of choice versus going on hearsay all schools tend to have flaws, what works for you may not work for someone else.. always consider that and ask the Lord for guidance

    Well, if she goes on the passing rate of Hinds, she wouldn't choose to go there. That is why the Clarion Ledger wrote an article about Hinds because the passing rate was low. Also, they had a low passing rate for the NCLEX. Also, in a sense she is doing research by asking others that have attended these schools. That is the best research you can do, by asking around and getting others opinions who have actually been there. I wish I had asked around before attending Hinds, and I got other's opinions after the fact.

    that is why I urge anyone do research with any nursing school of choice, I can speak negatively as well as positive towards UMC, USM from experience, but again what works for me may not work for another...I agree if a local paper is posting low pass rates that is a problem that needs a serious solution...I can also remember when Hinds was one of the top nursing schools to attend...goodluck to all of you on your journey

    If only Hinds accepts me in their nursing school this year, should I attend that school or wait next year and apply somewhere else?

    *Long Post. Sorry*

    All nursing schools have strengths and weaknesses. Hinds is really no different. Yes, there has been a lot of press in the last year about Hinds and their failure rates, but overall it is a good school that graduates good nurses. This is coming from a Holmes student who will graduate in the next 5-6 weeks.

    At Holmes, we will graduate around 40 at the end of my two years, but about 10 of those students are LPNs who came into the class at 3rd semester. The non-nursing class has lost one person for everyone who will graduate. No, the instructors were not trying to "weed out" students they did not like. Many times students will weed themselves out, for a number of reasons, not all of which have anything to do with academics.

    Never try to run a sprint in a marathon. Nursing school IS a marathon. If and when you get in, don't let history and the statements of others determine your nursing school experience. In nursing, much more so than other endeavours, YOU have great control over how far you go. Study, study, study! Perseverance and time management will get you through.

    I graduated from Hinds Rankin campus program in May of 07. No, Hinds is not easy, but nursing school is not easy. Heck, being a nurse is not easy. Anything worth having is worth working for. As a Hinds gradaute, I have to say that I feel like the program prepared me for my role as a registered nurse. It was the most stressful two years of my life, but I believe that learning how to deal with that stress prepared me for how to deal with the stress of working as a new graduate on the floor. There are pros and cons to consider with any nursing program, but I dont believe that it is very wise to base the decision on which program to attend on how "easy" others may tell you it is. In the course of two years we lost more than half of the original classmates that we started the program with. That is nursing school. I can also proudly say that our graduating class at Rankin had a 100% NCLEX pass rating. So no, it is not "easy" to graduate from the Hinds nursing program. It takes dedication, a strong work ethic, and a positive attitude. My license is proof that yes it can be done! Hinds reputation for graduating well prepared nurses is still the same. If you have a diploma from Hinds, I guarantee that any employer in the state of MS will be happy to have you on their team!
