  1. Dear Dianax, I am glad you found a better school. I recently learned from some of my employees that they failed at OJC. I was very disappointed. I know what a nurse student goes through and my advice to many students is to do a good search in the school. When the school do not disclose its graduation rate its a red flag PERIOD!! When they lose clinical sites like that... Red flag!! When you study everything your instructor told you, and still can't pass exams.. Red flag!! It is common to see schools taking advantage of electronic exams to select their failure rates. Don't believe me... do a search on school reviews around the internet. I am not too impressed with book smart nurses either I interviewed and hired many of them. Their grades are great but their commitment to their jobs are disappointing. Don't believe me... look at the down turn of RNs in healthcare especially in long term care.... Good luck everyone. Be wise!!
  2. I am very disappointed to learn that few of my employees failed the nursing program at Otero College. I mean no disrespect to their faculty but, they seriously need to consider how heavily they rely on exams to assess learning. I trained and supervised CNAs and LPNs that are great workers and I even made accommodations in their schedule to make sure they could attend school. When I went to nurse school I don't remember instructor being so sarcastic with their students. Now days is all about the desire for revenue. OJC failure rates on exams are difficult by design and should be investigated. I no longer encourage my employees to apply there. What a waist of their tuition reimbursement.. Those of you who are considering this school THINK very hard before you apply there. Do not rush to a school because of a friend or because schedule circumstances are convenient. Do a hard search in the school that's my advice. OJC lost contract with some of the hospitals in Pueblo so consider the kind of clinical you are gonna get, and how difficult they make their exams for you to pass. They try to tell you that their exams are according to evidence based practice but they do not provide such materials to prepare you for exams. You are in your own. I saw the textbook from one of my employees, and I assure you it was a joke. I do not recommend OJC for any student in Colorado.
