Cheating pre-nursing students - Page 3Register Today!
- May 2, '12 by nursetabithaI had a classmate like this in my CNA class. I was one of the better students who studied hard and she just was lazy so she was always asking me for answers on everything. I didn't mind helping her study, but I wasn't going to just GIVE her the answers. Well, guess what? Those of us who studied on our own passed, the ones who slacked, failed. So, in the end, the cheaters do lose.
I agree, it's so annoying! Cheaters should be expelled.

- May 2, '12 by sugarbiancaThey really don't bother me. Like others have said, cheating can only get you so far. If they have to cheat in the pre-req classes, how are they going to do on the HESI or TEAS? and if they manage to get into the program they will not last long.
- May 2, '12 by fhillnurseMy Physio 2 class started with 25 people and ended up with only 8. The class was hard hard hard, and the prof said as much on the first day of class. She was an excellent instructor and the ones who studied passed.
- May 2, '12 by cmboweNursing is one of the most trusted professions. People who are willing to cheat to get in can't be trusted & shouldn't become nurses. I don't understand how a school would allow this & just rearrange seats. Cheating is grounds for expulsion not just musical chairs! As a nursing student I know how important GPA is in trying to get into a competitive program. I also know how important it is to understand the fundamentals before you get into a nursing program because the expectation is that you already know it.
- May 2, '12 by Hemphiacheaters, no matter what profession they are going into, eventually have "karma" catch up with them!!! i have experienced my fair share of cheaters in my nursing pre-req classes over the last 2 years. it drives me crazy! when the "slackers" try to get me to help them, i tell them no.... i also let them know that "they are not worth me losing my spot at ut health science center this fall". i have been looked at like i am the biggest bia (& have also gotten nasty responses back ), but i don't work my butt off to make someone else life easier (so to speak) !!! i am a mother of a 2 year old, a wife, homekeeper, etc who goes to school full time and i can still manage to make a's...... most of the cheaters are lazy "kids" who don't get it.....
personally i think those individuals shouldn't even be able to make it into any nursing programs, because they have taken a spot for someone who has earned their grades, and deserves to be there. but for those that do make it into the program they will eventually fail out, because nursing school, adn or bsn, is far from easy.... and cheating???? they are pretty much screwed!!!
so remember the life lesson here.... karma is a bit**!!!! just keep up your hard work, i promise it will pay offLast edit by Hemphia on May 2, '12 : Reason: Change font color
- May 2, '12 by chandani430I dealt with this all semester in my anatomy & physiology class. A majority of the students in my class were cheating on quizzes, lecture exams and lab exams. My instructor would even leave the room during most exams! People would take out their cellphones and if he caught them, he would just accept whatever stupid excuse they gave like that they had their phone out to see the time despite there being a clock on the wall! I spoke to my instructor on several occasions about the cheating but nothing changed (I really think he didn't care) until I went over his head and complained to the Dean. After talking to the Dean,things finally changed.
- May 2, '12 by Nurse2b209I would have to agree. It really makes me upset because I'm working my butt off and students in my Biochem/Organic lecture and lab have been cheating. Our professor was told of this but sense she hasn't seen it for herself, the only thing she's done is ask if they have and of course they say no. So she just gave them a warning. @bigboi, that's what I keep saying, if they even get into the nursing program cheating won't work.
- May 2, '12 by StcroixI reported cheaters to my prof more than once during a pre req. He warned the class before the next exam. The cheating continued and he....did nothing. I can only conclude he just didn't care, but I sure did. All rules in print state you will be expelled, but I guess it is an empty threat as I have never heard of someone actually being expelled.
- May 2, '12 by chandani430Unfortunately, I think that most colleges nowadays care more about making money than they do about punishing cheating. One of my professors said that another reason nothing is done about cheaters is the fear of lawsuits. It's ridiculous.
