    niet nursing program 18 month program i think not!!!!!! most students that i have seen there either don't make it through the program or have had to repeat one or more quarter if they make it through at all. so when you look at the initial cost of $50000 but then add in one or two more quarters you are now spending $60000-$70000 for an adn. so they say they have a 100% pass rate but ask them how many students started in the program. most class sizes start at 25 as for the first graduating class they had 7. when i was a student there my classes started with 25 added 5 through the quarters and are now down to 5 students left. not to mention the quarters above and below me are in the same boat!!!! people that is 20% of the students that start there so unless you think you can be part of that 20% by all means..............not to mention the program director does not like anyone who is a cna, emt, lpn or of the male gender she will make sure that you don't pass her program..... not to mention if you go against the program director to get a problem resolved she will hunt you down and make sure you don't pass her program. plus, if you have a job and or a family the program director is not flexible at all she, believe you should be doing nothing but school and will make your schedule so that you can even have a job. and unless you have someone to take care of you kids 24/7 for the next two years this school is not parent friendly. plus each quarter you have to take and pass a dosage calculation exam(most schools have this class as a part of the program or as a prerequisit) which this school does not teach you what you need in order to pass the test each quarter with a 100%. not to mention they also claim they have all sorts of extra help say in the math lab ya right all the people there don't even know how to do that kind of math. but let not fail to recongnize they offer depending on how much $$$$$ they need that quarter they may let you take the math test three time or four just keeping you on the hook long enough for them to charge you for the entire quarter!!!!!!!! this place is nothing but a big$$$$$$$$ money pit!!!!!had i know then what i know now i would have gone elsewhere!!!! buyer beware!!!!!!!!:down:

    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. more to follow........ neit, neit nursing program, new england tech
