    The College Network

    Elkpark is right. Be very careful signing up for this program as they will hold your feet to the fire and insist on full payment even if you change your mind. I am going to have to file bankruptcy just to erase this debt and my credit will be ruined for a long time because I did not read the fine print. It is not pay as you go as most legit college's are. If you stop using them they will demand that you pay. My opinion is to stay away and if you still decide to use them read EVERY paper the shove in front of you to sign. They will try and rush the signing of these papers and that is how I got into trouble by thinking that I could read them later on and get out of it if I wanted to. They use high pressure salesmen ship like a used car dealer. Any college that wants all money up front and not pay as you use does not have your best in mind.

    Lawsuit Against The College Network

    i have nothing good to say about this so called college. my personal opinion is to stay away and sign nothing because once you sign you are in debt and they do not care one ounce about your reason for dropping. you are on the hook for the entire amount of the entire course no matter how much of it you use. i think of it as if i were to be accepted to a state university, and had to drop the state would not charge for classes not taken, only those you completed. not true with this company. the first course i received was anatomy and had the word "sample" superimposed over the top of every page that appeared to be copied on a poor copy machine. the quality of the material was very poor, blurry and not professional looking. i was accepted to another program and i went with them instead and i am much happier. i am actually learning and not just patted on the back by the so called counselors that i called for help. becoming an rn is expensive enough without making the mistake of signing with this company. learn from others mistakes and do not get suckered into their program. this is one man who has learned his lesson, (a very expensive lesson). if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is...

    The College Network

    The same thing with me, in my opinion this company does not have the students best interest in heart. I am paying for a service that does not work for me. I found out that I need stuctured learning but the could care less. Do not sign up if you have any doubts.

    Do Hospital's Charges Make Sense?, 2,999 % markup

    And this is just one example why President Obama's health program has been gaining strength and will continue to gain strength. The bottom line is money and the way to the bottom line is the price mark up. The USA is going to go the way of the romans because of this. AMERICA is screwed regardless of your or my wishes. The spark has been lit that is going to burn america to the ground and there is nothing we can do to stop it. I am weeping for my country...

    LVN to BSN university ot phoenix

    Hi I am in the Modesto UOP LVN/BSN upgrade. It is not easy as some poeple have put it but it can be done. I am in A&P and in three more classes I will start the nursing classes! I am really enjoying it. If you can do not stop at the LVN thats what I did in 1984 and I am just now getting around to this upgrade. Do it know while studying is still fresh in your mind because it is real difficult to get back in to the swing of things after no school for such a long time. Good luck to you...

    The hard to reach on-call doctor, and its effects on patient care

    I have always made sure to document everytime I tried to contact the oncall MD, including the time and telelphone number I used to contact them and the results of the call. It always amazes me how fast they seem to answer the phone for me once they figure out that their name will be included in the patients health record. I have no sympathy for the MD's that are on call, if they don't like their job then they can quit. Nothing as bad as a Prima Donna MD...
  11. I am 45 and male, I am in the RN program now and I am going to switch my career after twenty years in law enforcement. I believe that this will be the best choice for me and I am really excited to be in this honorable career.

    Anyone start their career late in Life?

    I am currently in the RN/BSN program. I am 45 and I work in Law Enforcement. Although the money is important to me as I get closer to retirment, job satisfaction is most important. I can think of nothing better then to be able to help someone during their time of need. I think I made the right choice.

    passing meds for 57 residents??

    Several years ago I worked for a California State Prison as a Medical Technical Assistant, basicaly a nurse with a badge. I worked pm's and averaged 300-350 inmates for med pass during an 8 hour shift. It was very difficult to accomplish the task of passing medications without help but that was how the state made us work. The amount of errors made during pill line was astonishing and I will never place myself into that position again. (no matter how much money they pay)

    EMT Gets Prison After Defibrillator Prank Kills Co-Worker

    IN 1985 I worked in ER at Naval Hospital Orlando when a co-worker did this same thing to himself at the lowest setting, he placed a paddle on each ear and did it. It was hands down the scariest, stuped thing I have ever wittnessed in my life. He lived, no thanks to his own actions.
