Re: “Merritt College Nursing Woes

I am a student that has worked very hard all of my life in achieving excellent grades. I was accepted into Merritt College's ADN program and was very dissapointed to find out that it was basically self taught program. The first day of class, the teachers stated that they were "Not here to TEACH, but here to guide!" I left everything for this program to later find out that I wouldn't continue on. I took all three fundamental tests and scored a 74 percent average. I felt from the start that the teachers didn't really care if we succeeded or not. It was also very dissorganized! I have never studied so much in my entire life, but the tests were aimed towards failure. They had poorly written questions, and even typos. I actually went to all three fundamental instructors before the third exam thinking it would help my chances to continue in the program with a score of 75% or above, but it actually made things worse! One teacher reviewed his/her section that would be covered on the exam, and to my surprize what he/she had said NOT to study was in fact on the test. I couldn't believe what he/she had done. I would probably still be in the program if it weren't for that teacher. Being so close with a 74%, I was so upset that he set me up for failure! I even e-mailed the director of the nursing program and she has yet to get back to me. I sent her more than one e-mail. So many students had already purchaced books for next semester and paid for the ATI testing, that we all got ripped off on. I also e-mailed another instructor a few times regaurding the ATI testing, and that instructor has yet to get back to me as well. Overall, Merritt College was a nightmare for me. I don't know what is going on, but something needs to be done to fix this problem!!!
