Why are Hinds CC Nursing Students Failing?

    Does anyone know what is happening to Hinds Community College Nursing Schools? I have heard that 40 plus second semester student did not pass at the Nursing Allied Branch.

    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
