  1. I have been advised ay a friend(np) to not go here but this is the closest place for me to commute to for training. ( can't move)Can anyone tell me the biggest drawbacks to this particular program and location? Heard that if authority decides to get rid of you for whatever reason, you are just gone. Since we know we would have to pay for all tuition and other expenses, it seems to be a big risk to take. What do you think?

    hello, i went to this school, it is a very good school,. i was in my th irties when i went there, and it was very hard on me . i had not been in school for a long time and i really had to work hard at everything . about half way through the program they decided that i was not nursing material and was goin g to kick me out, well i cried for two day day and night because i wanted it so bad and knew that i was and would make a good nurse. so after a few phone calls and meetings. i withdrew for a few months and then went back and finished, my reply to them was that it was their job to teach me and if for some reason they thought that i was not learning it was their fault, when i graduated i was the second highest score to the top and have been working ever since and never had a problem getting a job. if you really want to be a nurse and a good one, that is the place to go. you will learn what you need to know and you WILL pass boards. what they did to me was wrong, but it made me a stronger person, and to this day i appreciate it, and i still every day am able to make conection from what i learned and my job now and that makes me a good nurse. that has been 25 years ago. if this is what you want and really want, then go after it and let nothing menial stand in your way. i love what i do, and never want to do anything else. good luck, i know you will do great. june bug

    I answered this subject but the post never came up. Maybe because I didn't have anything positive to say?

    Well here goes. Several years ago while trying to get in I made the instructor mad because I wasn't a "yes" man. She has retired and one of her co-workers got promoted to instructor. Every year something is wrong; had to take NET twice; both times made low 90's. I don't believe I'll get accepted this year either as I believe the previous instructor is on the selection committee. Also there is a very real possibility that the present instructor is under her very controling thumb.
    I will have to rent a place and go elsewhere to school. Too bad as this house is paid for but what can you do when someone is spiteful and hateful? Can't wait for her to die you know; she'll probably outlive me. I was told about 6 years ago by a NP in Cape that you HAVE to be a "yes" man. So true.
