First, I would like to apologize if im posting in the wrong section. The nursing school that I am going to handles problems very unprofessionally. In fact, it has been known that students who "rebel" against professors and related staffs are kicked out of the program. The problem is that there is a professor who teachers 3 core nursing courses and she is very unprofessional. She favors students, puts material that isnt discussed and she tells her favorite students other student's grades. Multiple students in the past have complained to the dean and vice president of the school about her, but there hasnt been much change.

When nursing students first began attending the program, we had to sign a contract. I was wondering if there is a policy or guidelines that professors are suppose to follow? I've already invested so much time and money into this nursing program and almost half of our nursing class either dropped or are failing because of the professor. Is there anything that can be done?

If you have taken all reasonable steps to address then the next step would be to review your program's grievance policy.  Should be in the college catalog, student handbook or your program's handbook.

As a faculty member who was frustrated with another nurse of faculty- much like what you described- here are a few thoughts.  Take what helps and leave what doesn't.

When you submit grievance be sure to provide factual objective data to support your concern. 

Don't expect the faculty member to be fired- especially if tenured.  My best advice would be to file grievance if you have supporting evidence, but also be able to continuing moving forward, focus on your side of the street, let go of what you cannot control.

Sounds incredibly frustrating, for that I am sorry. I would recommend looking at the grievance policy and report the incident to whoever is identified there.
