No matter where you go you'll get some professors who are supportive some who aren't. Of all the nursing colleges I've heard of, I have many friends who are now nurses who graduated in NJ and NY schools, Dominican has the worst reputation. I've heard first hand that the professors are racist, and try to fail you, which is good for the program bcos it shows that it is competitive. Also their rate of passing the nclex the first time is very low. I know someone who graduated 2011 and someone who graduated 2013 and still have yet to pass the nclex. I apologize if this sounds very negative, but I'm trying to be realistic as possible. If you are able to just do your work, have a good study group, and family or friend support then you will be able to get by. This is speaking on behalf of the weekday accelerated program, not too sure about the weekend accelerated program. Also don't think this negativity is from people who haven't passed the program or the nclex, it is also from those who are successful nurses right now. May I add, successful from their hard work and connections into major hospitals, no help from Dominican college. A gf of mine who graduated from there couldn't find a job for a year. When she went to Dominican professors for help, all they did was tell her to wait, aka they were useless. A few months later a friend of a friend got her a job at Memorial Sloan. The head of the department found out and wanted her to come in and speak with the new set of absn students and talk about how Dominican opened so many doors for her. My friend got upset that they were trying to take credit for her getting a job at such an accredited hospital she refused to answer to the email. Nursing school is hard to get into nevertheless stay in. If you have the opportunity then by all means stay in the program. Just know that they can feed you all this information about how they want you to pass, but at the end of the day don't trust anyone but yourself!
