I just graduated from MCC Rio Salado Program. Like every other program, it has its bumps and holes. The third block was probably very much like the third block you just failed. However, be aware that, as many others have told you, a 76% is required to pass. For classes with only a final exam you must earn a 76% or better on that single test. It doesn't matter what you get on the quizzes or other assignments until you have passed that test with 76%. If you have classes with one or two midterms and a final, the requirement is 76% or better average between the tests. After that the grades you make on the quizzes etc. are figured in. The 76% passing is standard for the state of Arizona. I can tell you that for the first 3 blocks that I took with MCC Rio, I would not have incouraged my worst enemy to attend the program. It says a lot for the school that they went through a complete administrative housecleaning between our 3rd and 4th blocks. The nursing program has a new director named Sue Adams, and a completely new staff to work with and assist students. I am still not thrilled with their program, but I have to admit that the new staff seems much more willing to be of assistance to the students. The old staff was not as accomodating. Like any program there are problems, and if you are looking for the easy way out, don't take this class. It is more difficult than the traditional classes simply because you have to stay on top of all of your didactic lessons and be prepared for your clinicals without having a teacher sitting over you reminding you of every little thing. And since you don't have a teacher lecturing to you for 3-5 hours at a time, you must also be willing to expand your knowledge beyond what is in your text books. Make sure that you use all the resources available to you. Look things up on the internet, ask health care co-workers or, if you have questions about the pharmalogical end of things, think about things like calling your local pharmacist. I did that with regard to medications for which licorice was contraindicated. I could not figure out if that meant black licorice, all the colours of licorice or if it was the herbal root licorice and the contraindication had nothing to do with the candy. My local pharmacist was kind enough to help me understand a great deal about a lot of the meds I was having problems with. Don't know if this will help, but do your homework and don't try to transfer without knowing more about the next ground you will be stepping onto.
