    CONGRATULATIONS ON ALL OF YOU HAVE GRADUATED AND PASSED BOARDS!!

    I GRADUATED IN AUG 2007 AND PASSED WITH 75 QUESTIONS IN LIKE 45-50 MIN. I MUST AGREE WITH ANTFLIP THAT EVERY SCHOOL HAS ITS ISSUES AND IT JUST REQUIRES YOU TO STUDY HARD AND JUST DO WHAT U GOTTA DO TO LEARN THE MATERIAL.

    I went to an interview at MVH and they asked where I graduated from I said rets. The HR lady said they have noticed that rets nurses lack clinical skills. The lady was very polite and said that the hospital is working with rets and telling them how to make stronger nursing skills. The hospital understands rets is a new program and she said all new school do the same thing. SHe said rets has all of the potential to be an excellent school. And they have hired many rets graduates! When I was in my 2nd semester there was a lot of talk about MVH doesn't hire rets grads, not true! I thought that was some reassuring info to share. Oh yeah, I got a job there!

    My class graduted in Aug 2007 and MVH hired quite a few nurses from my class. I was lucky to have an awesome clinical instructor who taught us real nursing skills and I thank her everyday for that because most of them in our class had lazy or uninterested instructors who didnt push them or teach them clinical skills...Thank you AJ for teaching us REAL skills at Kindred!!!!!

    RETS is a good place. Reiterating about you getting the education that you put into it. Have a strong committment, stay focused and things will go good for you. Your first A & P class requires some studying to be successful at passing with a good grade. You will meet many instructors throughout your studies that will always be there for you in the hallways, offices or wherever you may run into them. I graduated from RETS in November, and immediately returned to the RN program.

    Dr. Misner is a very tough instructor in the program. His expectations are very high for all his students, PN and RN. If you study and put forth the effort, you will be fine. He wants nurses to leave the school with a good understanding of A & P. People talk outside of school, and talk within facilities and knows that Dr. Misner is the only instructor they have for A & P. Not only the school on display but him as well. Best of luck, stay committed and focused.

    I love Dr. Misner!!! He is the best. Just listen to him and you will do great in his class. Also, even if you are not required to attend tutoring for his class, attend anyway. I am a PN2 student and plan on starting RN program as soon as I graduate. I can't wait to have Dr. Misner again.
