Re: “Merritt College Nursing Woes

As a second year student at Merritt college I have to say that this article is not entirely accurate. I struggled through my first year and it was one of the most difficult yet biggest accomplishments in my life.

The nursing program isn't perfect, but no program is. I don't doubt the first year students worked harder than they ever have, and if there are inconsistencies within the new text (publishing issue), than I hope that there is some resolution to that problem.

My point is that I don't want this problem falling on to the instructors. I have had some amazing experiences with my instructors thus far; some have been frustrating, some have been inspiring, some have reached far beyond their limited amount of time to help me, but all of them have been challenging with the goal of making me a great nurse. Many of these instructors have also taught at some of the "more expensive" private institutions - the education remains the same.
Nursing school isn't for everyone and it has exceeded my assumption with regards to the level of difficulty. I was humbled yet determined, and continued to work that much harder. I have sacrificed just as much as my fellow classmates of whom I am so very proud.
So If I am fortunate to graduate this spring, I will thank and embrace each and every instructor who has helped to inspire me into the nurse I wish to become. I will also hold dear many of the discussions that went beyond the technical skills of the nurse; the indelible importance of dignity, compassion, life, and death.
