I'm a former PITC Graduate. I was on class 7 , my class started in September 2010 and ended in September 2011. 99% of us passed the NCLEX on first attempt before the end of 2011. The programme is very difficult that's true , the school is not responsible for any students who need to be reminded to study or to complete assigned clinical or other assignments, and definitely not a place for those interested in Nursing but will put very little effort to make it in the Programme. I was out of school for almost 15 years and I dedicated 4-5 hours a day studying, even so I could only score about 75% , never a 90%. As far as I understand, the Nursing programme , it is difficult no matter what because it covers almost every concentration and everything is important. So if anyone is interested in Nursing , I would say " way to go " because it is a good field , but it takes a prudent person to make it . It is not the school that fails Nursing students it is because some student's are not aware that acceptance in Nursing school somehow means giving up time for other things to make time to understand and be able to apply the Nursing theory in real life situations. All Nursing schools around here have all negative comments from former Students , because Nursing schools drop students that seem unprepared for the NCLEX because their performance will affect the College rating on The State Board. Actually , Colleges around the world do the same thing , some expel failed students completely , the problem is not PITC, my classmates and I made it , students from classes before and after made it.
