    hey there.. i went as far as psych.. didnt make it to MS1&MS2, i had to repeat maternity/peds.. and unfortunately did not pass by 2 points, now i neeed to start back at pharm.. which would be this coming december.. but i am still unsure to continue. im glad u are feeling good about the school.. just make sure u buy extra nclex books for the finals. a&p is easy.. pharm and on is tough. nclex books, cds r the key! i learned the hard way! good luck

    yess, their policy is fail 3x and u are back at pharm. unfortunately Maternity/Peds got the best of me.. and i failed by 3 points.. its very discouraging thats why i am still debating on going back or not. our A&P teacher was Obuteh, im pretty sure he is still teachin a&p. trust me, the language barrier for me was very tough also but u will get used to it. he is also prob the BEST teacher u will have in that school. he seems hard (which he is) but he means well and he does everything in his power to help students.

    Hi everyone, for those who have already taken classes at Merit Institute or have completed their LPN program, i would like to get some info about their classes and what to get ready for. I got accepted to this school and i'm very nervous because i don't what to expect. Any info would greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
    hi you believe you mention that you going to merit right, i would like to know about what kind of loan they offer, is it private or federal, what is the interest rate and what do you need to qualify for it, do you need a good credit score or .... thank you im thinking on applying there for fall 2010.

    Merit is not accredited, therefore they do not qualify for Federal Loans. MERIT is a TRULY hungry for money school! I got accepted there, (attended orientation and everything) but choose not to attend. U pretty much need about $2,000 by orientation (which is a week or less before classes actually start). U need another $1,500 Before midterms of ur first module, which includes 1 week of medical terminology and 3-4 weeks of A&P. U have to pay I think about $4,500 before u can apply to their private "loan" (which is really not a loan because u still have to pay about $500 a month. Also u MUST pay off ur remanding balance/ loan BEFORE u sit for the exit exam or else they wont let u graduate). I also had a co-worker who was well into the program when I went for orientation. She, along with other students, warned me not to go to Merit. Mysteriously, EVERYONE in her class had failed Med Surge and the students believed it was a way for the School to make more money off of the students by having them pay to repeat the class.

    wow, i have a aunt that graduated from there last year and she said its not the best school to attend, but if you really know what you want and work hard, do study group and go to tutoring outside of the school you can make it, she is doing her bachelor in nursing now, merrit is not my first option right now but its one of them, most private nursing school are unorganize but at the same time when you think about it merit its not that expensive compare to other school like lincoln tech and when you do graduate you will be making twice as much when you want something you go for it, anyway thanks for the info.
