Cheating pre-nursing students - Page 4Register Today!
- May 2, '12 by JonJPAnyone who cheats, ends up failing in the long run. I don't let anyone take my work, and if they ask to cheat they are met with a brisk no If I can study and do all my work along with working and trying to have a little bit of a life, they can make the time to study as well.
- May 2, '12 by SuperMeghan91This happens with any program in which it's very competitive or where the only thing that matters is getting an A. I will say that the only thing I learned in all of my high school honors and AP classes was how to cheat, or how to do the least amount of work to get an A. Needless to say, that's not helping me now, and I'm trying to teach myself how to study effectively because I wasn't taught while in school.
That being said, how have these students not been thrown out of the school? There was one time in my pre-req classes ONLY ONE TIME when a teacher in one of my pre-req class found out that two students in her class were cheating. She gave them 0's on their lab practicals and threatened to report them for academic dishonesty, they were reported to the school of nursing and were not allowed to apply at this school. That teacher took it easy on the students. I've heard stories of another teacher reporting students to the dean and having them removed from the school, and once you're removed from college, good luck getting back in. I seriously, have never cheated in my college classes (despite my 4 years of training to cheat my way to success) out of fear of being black-balled.

- May 3, '12 by MyMystudentRNive seen my fair share of cheaters and those who love to slack off. in my lvn program (private school super expensive) about half the class were the rowdy class clown who always had some sarcastic remark in the middle of lecture. instructor really didnt care much she even laughed at some remarks until it came to the quizzes (one every week). she was strict when it came to these tests. she even orinted out 3 different versions so that every row would either have test A, B, or C. However, oeioke still found a way to cheat by pulling out their cellphones and googling the answer. instructor was going to retire when we graduated so she hardly paid attention after she handed out the tests. well needless to say when it came down to take the exit exam (HESI) the ones who fooled around had to take it mulitple times before their info. was sent to the board to even be eligible to take the Nclex-PN. two that i know of just passed. and the other 3 have yet to take it
karma is definitely a *****
- May 5, '12 by onetallgirlI know that with our teacher, our syllabus states that the first incident is an F on that assignment/test, and a second is expulsion from the class. I'm pretty sure that both incidents are reported to the dean/records.
Of course, there are always suspicions...and not hard evidence. It would be difficult to expel purely on suspicions I think.
- May 5, '12 by Bobmo88That is just shameful, I hope they fail the rest of their classes and don't get into a program. These are people that are trying to enter a profession where they are responsible for taking care of others, how could they live with themselves? If they can't get the job done in prereqs, how will they do it in nursing school or real life?
