there is no easy road to become a registered nurse. it's hard work from the start to the finish, to include all those core and pre-req classes. if you find yourself tempted to take the neit nursing program because they promise no waiting list and a rn degree in 18 months, think about it hard. i fell into this trap, thinking i could take the easy path to a nursing degree. luckily, i only lost two semesters of time and money, whereas i know people who came in with me and are still there being pushed back and raped of additional money. they are now far too vested, with time and money to get out and run for their lives. i know a girl right now who, yet again, has been withdrawn from her current classes and must wait for the next class to continue. she would like to find another legitimate school and salvage her nursing dreams, however, she owes several-thousand dollars in tuition costs and cannot get her official transcript. they refuse to give it to her until she squares away her debt. even if she could get her transcript, i seriously doubt the credits she has paid so dearly for from neit will be of any use in another nursing program. so, she is stuck, having to continue through the neit gauntlet.
there is new england tech, and then there is new england tech nursing program. think of the nursing program as a virus, living inside the host cell (new england tech) an entity within an entity. the virus has taken over and does its business autonomously, without regard to the long standing rules and protocol of the host cell. the nursing program is herding countless prospective nursing students to its doors, feeding money into the insatiable school coffers. the nursing program is the goose laying golden eggs, and because of this, the school administrators turn their heads and ignore what really goes on within the neit nursing program.
there is a class right now which started off with 30 students, and now is down to 4 students! should these students graduate and pass the nclex, neit will boast a 100% pass rate. really? these numbers are fine with neit. as long as the front end keeps pulling in prospective students, it does not matter who makes it out at the back end. like a pyramid scheme, it's all in numbers and there is no end to the desperate unsuspecting applicants to the program.
what makes this program so bad? they do in fact have state of the art technology with their sim labs and such. the new school facility is fantastic and fresh. like a gorgeous, decorated christmas tree, with all the lights, bells and whistles, however, deep within, at the core is a rotten tree with decaying branches. the chair person is as unprofessional as they come. she is without restraint and will do whatever she pleases. she has been known to hunt down the author of unfavorable course critiques. if you seek resolution outside of the nursing program, you are doomed. she will turn on you, and get her loyal staff (henchmen) to make your life as miserable as can be. not all the nursing staff are evil i must say. there are definitely those who are under the chair's spell. the outside resources, although empathetic to your grievances, do nothing to protect you. you are fed back to the nursing program to fend for yourself.
the lady who chairs this program is truly out of control. if you can have a little patience and get into one of rhode island's well established nursing schools you will be so much better off. better off financially, and educationally. if you don't have the patience and must go into neit nursing program, good luck, you will soon learn patience and learn it painfully so.
