cheating at nursing school - Page 14Register Today!
- Jun 4, '10 by ScrubbyI too have a huge issue with cheating. It's not fair on those of us who spend hours studying and all the people who can't get into nursing because of lack of university places. I believe people who get caught cheating should be kicked off the nursing program and not allowed back in, we don't want them in our profession anyway. Simply making them take another test is hardly a deterrent. I believe not taking cheating seriously reflects very badly on a school.
Just out of curiosity how are exams conducted at your nursing school? We had to go to this huge hall and each row had a person walking around checking to see if you were cheating.
With assignments I learned my lesson in first year when I lent a fellow student a copy of my work because they weren't sure how to set it out properly. I found out later on that they had pretty much copied my paper word for word. Lesson learned-never show anyone else your work!

- Jun 4, '10 by ScrubbyQuote from Brookenicole84We don't have nclex. When you finish university you present your transcript to the nurses board to show you have passed the degree and that's it you're registered.The people that cheat or dont study and slide by wont pass the nclex. just think about that and you'll feel better :-)
- Jun 5, '10 by zbb13I saw a number of people cheating on pre-nursing courses. All of them were applying to nursing school and needed better grades to get in. I don't think they suddenly grew morals when they get into nursing school, and unfortunately, a number of them will pass the NCLEX. Nurses with NO integrity whatsoever, you gotta love it.
- Sep 10, '10 by usernameistakenThose 11 students should have been expelled. They say they take cheating seriously in college, but it seems like they don't. I reported cheating at my nursing school and the academic counselor told me "yes, we recycle exams and it doesn't surprise me that cheating is going on." She also said that she would rather the students get away with cheating that have already gotten away with it since it would be hard to prove. So there you go....cheating is okay...in Louisiana anyway.
- Sep 11, '10 by hiddencatRNQuote from Brookenicole84Nah, that's not true. What about the people who are cheating not to pass but to get good grades? If life were fair and good things didn't consistently happen to people who don't deserve it, maybe I'd have faith in the universe screening out the cheaters. But that's not the case.The people that cheat or dont study and slide by wont pass the nclex. just think about that and you'll feel better :-)
- Sep 11, '10 by Paco-RNCheating should be a crime, punishable with jail time. If you cheat in nursing school you should forever be banned from the profession. Cheaters need to suffer REAL consequences from their actions.
- Sep 23, '10 by BILLIE39Hi Pino I just wanted to say - good for you for being strict with students. Too many nursing students have this idea that mentors and tutors are strict with students because they are being so mean. Let me tell you something in my RGN training I had some of the toughest mentors/teachers you could ever meet. They made me learn so much and taught me so much. When I passed my final placement my mentor/tutor said to me "you will make a brilliant nurse - I am confient because I feel you have learnt so much. I wasnt hard on you to be mean but because I wanted you to be good and succeed and be a credit to the profession." Because of those tough mentors I am the nurse I have strived I wanted to be. When it is my turn to mentor and teach students I am going to be tough as nails too, not to be mean but because I want students to learn good practice and become good nurses.
