    Most of the students are filing grievances and getting legal counsel. Some are speaking with the dean. Just know that it's a very rigorous programs, slightly unorganized.....but there are so great teaxhers like Imez, babes, Rogers, sprave, and mcdaniel. Besides quizzes and test, you have papers every semesters, workbook assignments(VCE) group presentation and etc. just study everyday and now if you already got your books. I'm sure if you already know what your first course is going to be, you should be able to search lee college website for the an old syllabus.

    Hi - I have been reading everything and I was wondering what the final outcome of the testing/graduation issue was? I will be able to apply for the Spring and I am not to happy to see that this all went on.....

    Sorry for the delayed response. The school lawyer has gotten involved....along with the hired attorneys for the nurses. Im not what sure what got them to re-look the whole matter, but they have sinced offered the students who were completely kicked out another chance to re-test. The other students who were on their final strike were given the option to take a remediation class (the same class some of the other students took this summer which was a joke and partically a self-study course at the expense of the students at a whooping cost of$600) an retest. Some are testing this friday. I will keep you posted.

    I wont be recommending anyone to the program, so if I had to rate it....a zero seems appropriate. That's just my take on it. Dont get me wrong, you can pass this program as long as you stay ahead and prepare for the worst that is yet to come. Just know that you cant solely rely on their word on anything. They will change things at the last minute. Good luck and I wish you well.

    Just for your info and for all the folks that read this blog. this school is horrible, it is unorganized, some professors change there mind when they want to about assignments and what to include in them. deadlines are changed when ever they want to they do not try to help you, there is no specific teacher that teaches. you get stuck with different teacher each day and you do not even know who it will be. horrible horrrible horrible!!!!!! i would suggest for you to do A LOT of research and ask around to those students that are in the program. they will tell you what they think about it. i was in the program and i dropped the program before taking my two finals. yes, two finals which they do not tell you what to study!!! they go by 8 weeks so you will have one semester split in 2.
    we started the semester with 85 students now they have less then 45 students. people dropped like crazy bc they realized that we did not have a team to relly you are by yourself in all this!!!!!!

    I agree with making_1989...I would not advise anyone at all to attend this school. You are by yourself through the whole thing, you pay them to teach you nothing. They basically robbed all of us for our money. They were not willing to teach, it's like they were all watching out what they tell us and teach us. Please just go the hard route of taking the entrance exam at other colleges. Do not attempt to go the short cut of getting into a program that requires no entrance exam.

    @ panamanian_2009 and @precise

    I have been thru two nursing programs and they both were the same... tough, minimal help with studies, and it is on you to learn the material.&nbsp; This is not grade school , this is not like regualr college,, this is NUrsing school, and like other medical &nbsp;professions most skill is learned hands on on your own with professor observation!! &nbsp;If you are not able to step up and take charge of your learning experience, you WILL FAIL!!.&nbsp; First and formost, you MUST&nbsp;discover &nbsp;how you learn!! Are you verbal, kinetc, repetitive, social, auditory or a combination of them all. it is the professors job to&nbsp; guide you, help you think criticaly, not giving you all the anwsers, you&nbsp;have to problem solve for your patient and&nbsp;&nbsp;gain the skill of evidence based practice, develop your own nitch of practive, observation, and skill.&nbsp; Every nurse is different.&nbsp; In the LVN program at HCC, we started out with 86, pharmacology lost a lot of our class, we only graduated with 20. In the ADN program at LEE, we started out with 60, we are currently at 40, Pedi, OB and Med Surg II weeded them out.&nbsp;Lee is an excelent school, its hard, its tough, it is unorganized, it is messy, it is dramtic, it is not predictable, it is stressful, it is all of these things.....like real life, as a nurse on the unit!!&nbsp; <br><br>Nursing school prepares you for the real world. You will not have the same nurses, Dr, PCA's, or other staff every day or every week. Change is apart of the profession. So I hear what making_1989 is saying but the different staff, the unannounced clinical times and locations, the sudden change in class time or test times, and all the other unorganization that goes on in every program, this&nbsp; is preparing you for the crazy days you may have in the ER, or on the floor as charge nurse, or if a patient codes, or if a family member acts up. You have to be prepared for anthing as a Nurse, You are a leader and patients and other unliscenced personnel&nbsp; look up to you to know what to do UNDER PRESSURE!! so if you can't handle it in a learning setting, how can you handle it LIVE..5 4 3 2 1&nbsp;&nbsp; ... your on,... all eyes on you!!!<br><br>My advice is to learn how you learn, find your way,&nbsp; have a back up for your back up, and another backup for that back up (family, children,) reach out to classmates or senoir level classmates, STUDY like failure is NOT an option... feel it like your kids look up to you and say "mommy why are you crying, why are you not graduating"?&nbsp; I saw this happen this semester to my classmate who did not pass psych and can not graduate with us in May. It killed me becasue I know how hard it is.&nbsp;&nbsp; Also many attempt to woerk while going thru the program, and many of those have not made it!! I do not advise working FT, PT may even be too much i you have kids and a family at home. <br><br>Im giving you the real on what it is like, and what I have seen and what it takes.&nbsp; I will graduate in May 2013, I have made one C and all other B's. with not working, 4 kids,&nbsp; and driving from Houston 60 miles each way every day, i almost lost my husband, and my kids, told me I was a mean mommy beacuse I had to put school first,&nbsp; and my family second. It was a temporary sacrifice I had to make for my family to make sure we have a better future!!&nbsp; It was a long 2 years&nbsp; of Nursing school, but we made it!&nbsp;&nbsp; <br><br>We study like pre med,&nbsp; we catch doctors errors, and we earn a Nursing pay check.&nbsp; It is a lot of responsibility, and it is not for the weak!!&nbsp; NEVER COMPLAIN and make&nbsp; blood with the staff, a be known as a complainer with your pears no onw ill want to work with you in groups, take it for what it is, study your ASS off, push thru and JUST DO IT!!!&nbsp; Good luck!!
