i am sincerely sorry if i have offended you, or any other neit nursing student, past or present. i did not intend for my post to degrade the hard work or education neit nursing students have achieved. i've been there, and i know what you have gone through. as in any other nursing school, it is very tough and one must be extremely dedicated to the program. i know you were upset, however, i think your comment about "going back to burger king", was presumptuous and uncalled for. i do believe the neit nursing graduate is as good as any other and trained well. howerer...
i must say, i have been in a bunch of college courses and occupational learning environments. i was not born yesterday. i know the difference between good, sound, conducive learning, to that of bad, unprofessional, unethical, hypocrisies. my experience, and frankly, that of many others, is that the program is out of control and being administered by a very unprofessional chair person. the numbers don't lie, and if you have a look at the number of nursing students walking in the front door, to those exiting the back with a degree in hand, it all makes sense. yes; you can't expect everyone to get through, but seriously, five out of twenty-five?? this is what i am told, and being in the program myself, experiencing the absolute corruption, it does not surprise me.
i wish you luck and hope to see you out in the health care community, perhaps working side by side. i know you have studied hard and have learned a lot. my opinions of the neit nursing program may not be yours, and i can appreciate that. nonetheless, this is what i have seen and experienced, and if i can save someone the time, energy and money, and let them know there are other options here in rhode island, i feel it is my duty to do so.
