Nursing program 12/14/2010

I am currently in the program finishing up my first semester. I hope whoever is reading this post and thinking about applying to the nursing program at MCTC, think twice and consider alternatives! The school acts like all it cares about is their NCLEX pass rate- and damn the students. They make the classes so difficult that you practically have to be able to pass the Nursing Board exam in order to pass the class, which is great for preparing for the NCLEX, but makes it very stressful to try to pass through the program. I had a 3.95 going into the nursing program, and now I'm ecstatic if I can get anything above a "C". And the clinical courses are insane! They are so concerned about medication errors, that practically anything can qualify. Even when I ask questions to clarify, the instructor gives me a medication error. It's like the "Soup Nazi" from Seinfeld is your Clinicals instructor! And 3 medication errors in one semester (which is very easy to get), and you fail the course. And 2 failing courses throughout the whole program and you are basically OUT for good. I've been in classes where half the students in the class are on academic probation for one reason or another. It is a total stress-fest where everyone is on edge. I really wish I picked another school. more
