What a big waist of time putting that report together. I think it is a very bad idea to put up merit pay for graduating the entire class, one the grads can't pass the boards and two if they do happen to pass as some are good on paper but fail when it comes to dealing with patients. I don't want the dumbing down of nursing. It should not be a lotto to get into the nursing classes, it should be based on grades, past work or community service and recommendations. And last but not least pay the wage and we will have plenty of nurses and educators, it works in every other field why not nursing? I hate to say it but it can be due to it being a female dominated profession and the boys don't want fess up. PS: I am a man.

As a senior level nursing student who has a BA and has worked in corporate environments, my program for an associate degree in nursing has bar far some of the most unprofessional, backbiting, and straight up vindictive people I have ever met working as professors. Out of 65, we just lost 22 this semester alone to obvious ambivalence from the staff. Half of the instructors are inspiring, the other half are there to collect a pay check and have no problem saying it. It has been a very unwelcome welcome to this profession, sadly. The Medsurge final was so poorly written 33 of 65 failed it. The class went to admin: nobody there to talk to, nobody cared.

Moments like that, I question my career decision.
