    Why would you want to "report" a school or institution if clearly the whole class doesn't mind that everyone is eating or drinking? Like she said, if the instructor wants to resolve it, they can resolve it by saying "no eating or drinking".

    If its a class consensus that eating is OK... why would you want to report it? Its obviously ok with her class, considering she went out of her way to even pick up food sometimes for people.

    Thats just..... silly......

    Now, breaking open a huge bag of doritos, sitting right in the middle of class, and being the ONLY one to eat, chomping away, that might be a little distracting. However, if the majority of the class is eating, so what? In my opinion, its harder to concentrate with a growling and gurgling stomach than it is someone coming in late quietly or someone eating a small bag of chips.

    Oh please people stop it.From high school to college to medical assistant school to now LPN school people have been eating in class and I have continued to maintain a 4.0 grade point average.Someone eating quietly when they are obviously hungry should not disable anyone from learning I have never heard that in my life.I am not making excuses for anyone or attacking anyone on this post but please people give it a rest and just finish nursing school whether or not someone that sits behind you has a dam burger!Geeeeeeeeeeshhhhhhh

    lolololololololololololololololol...........
    Some people learn differently than others. There is a tiny little bitty thing called CONSIDERATION and MANNERS for others Me personally i could care less what someone else is doing as long as it is not disrupting me from learning(i.e talking while lecture is going, answering cell phones in class by the way especially if its not on vibrate that shoot annoys the crap out of me, arguing with the teachers, always going off on tangents about things that are unrelated to what the lecture is about, asking a question about what the instructor just addressed 1 minute ago [and i dont mean like when you are asking for a clarification because you did not understand something]). Other than that as long as i am getting what i paid for out of POCKET i am good to go.

    No, no, no. The state board can be called upon to investigate a program if they receive complaints that the quality of education is suffering (i.e., distractions permitted in class).

    If you want to continue this discussion, PM me.
    That is absolutely, 190% not true.

    If the school has a very good NCLEX pass rate, then you would be very hard-pressed to convince the BON that they should launch an investigation regarding eating and drinking in class being "detrimental to learning".

    I"m not getting personal...I'm just demonstrating that you didn't answer the question.

    If you can find me a link to ANY State's BON webpage that shows that students should report instances that are "detrimental to learning" that don't have anything to do with race, ethnicity, etc...b/c that isn't in the same catagory as eating/drinking/coming in late...and that if such is found, that they will lose their accreditation...then I'll be glad to post public apology.

    If you can't concentrate if people are eating, then how can you expect to function in an emergency situation in a hospital with tons of people shouting orders, getting this, getting that...how can you expect to concentrate on what you are supposed to do next if you are so easily distracted?????

    First, please calm down.

    Second, you are picking my previous posts to pieces to make your "point." The fact is, it is 190% true that a nursing program can be reported. I never specifically said a program would be suspended for allowing food and drink in class. I was making a broad statement about a laissez-faire program in general which, it can be assumed if the program fails to maintain order in one area, they probably fail to do so in others.

    Finally, it doesn't matter what you think is hard to "report" about a program. If enough students reported a program, no matter how "minor" YOU think it is, it can prompt a survey team to be sent to the program to investigate the complaints. Most likely a "food and drink" complaint would not go far, but a complaint about suffering student education might, wouldn't you say?

    Please, go to bed.

    ok wow....
    this is when they need to close a thread. is there even an request button anywhere on this website for that.lololol
    i thought this thread was posted because someone was clearly trying to vent or maybe even seek some kind of advice. but noooooooo, people are having little pissin' matches about what the bon can and cannot do (who even cares). i might as well add in my 2 cents since everyone else is.
    if one of them should actually see some of these posts i am sure they would be cracking up:d
    anyways i wonder how ngayle04 is doing?
    if by any chance you are viewing this post i hope that you have learned a valuable lesson from all this. there is a time and place for everything and that clearly was not it. i am just sorry that you had to learn this way. and next time do not give your right away. you gave that school more than enough ammunition to shoot you down, even though you had valid reasons for being upset you gave your right away.
    best wishes and luck to you in your future endeavors in nursing school

    I don't think ngayle04 cares one whoot about what the BON thinks at this point. She is probably trying to figure out what she is going to do about finding a new nursing program to enter. Hope she gets things taken care of and learns from this.

    Wow! Such attitude! I've already graduated and am working, and sorry, but in my experience, the people who were unable to follow simple class rules like "no eating in class" were also the ones inconsiderate enough to CHOMP their food during class. And yes, our school had rules. Thank goodness only one instructor opted to not enforce it.

    And no, I don't care about your busy schedule. Everyone is busy.

    I dunno. Somehow I manage.

    Now I must ask: if you can't go for a two hour block of time without eating, how can you expect to make it through a day where it is not uncommon to have to work 8-9 hours on your feet before you can break for food?
