last year I was accepted to a nursing school
across the country. I am 35 and wanted to finish. The program is an accelerated program. 12 months to be exact. I filed for disability services one month before school began in January. The first semester I had a number of incidences occur just like other students. First semester was 19 units. My mom had a stroke and my roomate situation was a hostile relationship to say the least. I did not end up receiving the accommodations until a month and a half of school and had already taken numerous tests. I passed everything but pharmacology. The next semester I took just pharm and passed the Hesi with a 96 percentile and a 98 in the class. When I started the next semester we were taking 21 units. I passed everything and did pretty well, however, I did not pass med surg 2 by 5 questions. The rule at my school is if you get anything under 75 it is a fail. 2 fails and your out is the policy. Now here is the kicker they said on my disability papers I am to get a note taker, a reader for tests, a reduced distraction zone for tests. I never got the note taker, didn't get a reader, and for my med surg 2 Hesi I was put in a hallway with three distracting rooms next to it with students and facilty going in and out. They did give me the time and a half. I spoke to the dean she stated that it is my responsibility to wear a noise canceling head set. I did wear a noise cancelling headset. She also stated how she is now going to speak to the committee about having any student with disabilities sign a waiver of discretion that it is up to them to take this very rigorous academic journey. My question is why did they not do this for me. Anyhow, I had 5 classes left. I owe $70,000 and lost a year of my life. I don't think anything transfers and I have a dismissal on my record. I feel I have been wronged and set up to fail. Any suggestions? By the way my disability is ADD and kerataconus.
