    putting urine on burns? has anyone ever heard of this?

    It most definitely works. It may sound gross but when u have a hell of a burn and nothing to relieve the pain, urine will do the job. It also helps with sties.

    I hope they will open in January as well. I wouldn't discourage from applying to this school. As long as you do the work, you will succeed and gain the knowledge you need to succeed.

    I just have to say, LICHSON is not a crap school. What happened was unfortunate and has nothing to do with the teachers or even the dean. It is all in the hands of the presidents etc. The teachers are nice and so is the dean. They are as much victims to this situation as everyone else. I started school this semester and I like it. Unless you want your hand held through every test, lab, and clinical, you won't bash the school. Granted, it's a more laissez-faire approach, but guess what, when you finish school and become nurses, you won't have a teacher there telling you what to do. It's called developing your critical skills and critical thinking. Other schools may be more advanced, but it doesn't mean it's better. School are judged upon their teachers and the willingness of the students to do their work as well. In the end, we will all graduate and we will all be nurses, no matter how grand or awful the school was.

    At this point in time I believe any staff in the school will be thankful to have any job and the students that were supposed to start may not have any other option at this point, like me. No one is talking about legal action at this time. Those that hold accepting letters are just hoping for the best because that it all we can do at this time. Moving on is certainly an option, but just giving up is not.

    Yes, I am fortunate enough to have the acceptance letter and it makes things easier for me, but on the other hand it's like an ant trying to fight with an elephant. I will try my best to fight, tho.

    In case anyone is interested, I did receive a letter from LICHSON last Thursday informing me that my deferment money will be returned to me and that there will be no fall classes. They provided a phone number to call for any questions, but I've been calling since last Friday and it just rings and goes in to voice mail. I have left four messages so far, but no one has returned my call. I wrote an email to the State Board for Nursing and cc'd the president of Downstate and *******, forgot what she does there. I am waiting for a reply from Board for Nursing and will update as soon as I hear anything. I do not feel it is fair what they have done, especially since I hold an acceptance letter. Due to their actions, I may lose another three years trying to do the rest of my pre-requisites and apply to other schools. Luckily, my brother's gf is an attorney and will be advising me as to what my next step should be. Being that I was accepted, it is the duty of Downstate and LICHSON to make sure a spot in a nursing program is provided for me. They don't even guarantee a spot if they do start accepting students again. This is in no way fair and if I have a chance to sue them, I will.

    Do you have an email, so we don't have to converse about this on here?

    No, not an LPN. I took all my pre requisites, took me three years, so now I just have to take straight nursing classes.

    I am enrolled and I did get my acceptance letter last year, so they have no choice but to stick me in to some program but at this point I don't even know how that's going to happen. The registrar didn't give me much information and said that lichson is under downstate now, whatever that means. The schedule I was told by the evening program teacher is not the one the registrar told me. She said mon-fri, 6-11. That is much more time than was originally stated. I am confused as to why the class schedule changed. Anyway, I still have no idea what's going on. Registrar told me to just wait and I will be contacted by Downstate. The situation is unfair to all included in this mess. Lichson employees don't even know what's going to happen to them. It's terrible.

    So because I got my acceptance last year and deferred my spot, I automatically get a spot in the fall but I think it will be at downstate son but I'm not really sure. Everything was very vague and the registrar said she doesn't even know what's going to happen tl the school or the employees. It's a very gray area and no one knows what's going to happen at this point. She just told me to be patient and wait and they are doing everything they can to resolve everything and to be fair to everyone. So, no straight answer at this point, just to be patient.

    Wow, thanks for your effort. I typed up letters to everyone that odessaboy said to contact and will be mailing them out today. At least the letters have a better chance of reaching their hands because getting to them through phone calls is really hard. Thank you, keep us updated.
