I just finished class Thursday and I am nervous. I completed the ADN program and I am praying to God that they hurry up and send my name to the Florida board of nursing. I also inquired about my transcripts I need to load up on at least 4 of them. I completed my preq's from a community college and got into the program and it did not work out. So I ended up at ITT Breckinridge. I have come this far and all I want is my name to be sent off to the state. Grades close on the 5th of September, and my name will be sent to Florida Board of Nursing.
I must say this and I'm only talking about my "program". I really was pleased with ITT-Breckinridge program at the Fort. Lauderdale campus. My Professors were excellent. I was able to get the skills and tools that I needed to make it this far and pass. The school is expensive but like I said I came in with preq's and I got a $25,000 scholarship
. Therefore I won't be paying $50,000+ which I know is ridiculous for an ASN/ADN. I have about $13,000 in loans and I am cool with that. I wanted too attend another state university or college but once you Withdraw and or failed a science attempt it's really hard to get into one. That's how I ended up at ITT and pretty much a lot of students did to. I hate when I see people post "Poor unexpected Student" or believe me and my peers have no skills and didn't research. I did my research and to be honest at the time my school "Fort. Lauderdale" was in very good standing. Most of us are 2nd degree students or LPN's we are no less different than any other nursing student.
ITT corporate office made a big mess of things and some of my classmates may end up without a degree. I pray to God that they will make it through and finish there or at another program. As for me I'm praying that God will allow this school to
1. Send my name to the state so I can test for NCLEX. 2.Release my transcripts 3.Give me my degree.
I have applied to UTA so I can be locked into a BSN program. I have a good chance of getting in because again I have credits from my community college, and they do allow you start if you haven't taken your NCLEX yet. You do however need to pass it at some point before you are able to continue on.
This is just a big mess. I was so happy I finished and I can't even celebrate because of all this. I can't even sleep thinking about this. I just have to keep telling myself God didn't bring me this far to leave me. I pray for us all.
