Heard they are not readmitting students who failed one course. In the past the nursing students always got another chance. Sucks as they have made hundreds spend thousands to take an extra year of pre nursing before they were even admitted in the first place. Won't be surprised if they get a class action suit over this prank they are pulling. This school is going downhill. Buyers beware.

Who cares? There are far more nursing graduates locally every year than there are jobs for them. Add in the fact that compared to UC or St E's it is the bottom of the rung locally in terms of a quality program & grads, and there is even less of a reason to care about those who flunk out. Who the hell flunks a course at a community college anyway? Nobody that I want taking care of me!!

What an ignorant comment above. Lots of people fail a course...has nothing to do with your ability as a nurse. As a nurse that graduated from MVCC I can tell you that the failure rate is high...especially for just one class. The program is tough. I myself did not fail, however many of my co-workers have and they ended up excellent nurses....oh and yes they could be taking care of you at anytime. Also....when nurses are interviewed and hired the school they graduated from MAKES NO DIFFERENCE. It doesn't even come into the equation.

If they are failing then the teachers need to be FIRED. It's called "POOR TEACHING". The schools have a nice scam going if you ask me. Take you money and if you fail, then on to the next one.

The whole thing is a shame. I am sure they force you to buy their supplies and uniforms too...right?

I also heard that if you have a criminal record, that if you do pass the nursing course like CNA, LPN or whatever, that upon you filling out apps to places, if they see you had a record then your app goes right in the garbage.

The school will still take your money and tell you though its not a big deal if you have a misdemeanor or not.

It's like that at most companies. No one wants a criminal on their staff.

Here is the policy from the MVCC web site. Have a problem talk to NY State.

Right they changed the policy this semester ...80 students who failed are ass out cannot repeat a class once like they used to. Not fair to students currently in program they should be grandfathered in. MVCC has a 4 year wait list and worse nyclex pass rates in the state google that! St Elizabeth's has a great pass rate and good instructors. Don't go there and waste your time and money

I know firsthand,if you fail one nursing course, they will not let you repeat the course, I don't care what the programs manual tells you.

MVCC's first time past rate is atrocious, and those statistics back that up as fact . UC is very expensive and not worth the money, graduates no longer receive an SU degree.

Amazing that mvcc and Sullivan county have the lowest nyclex exam statistics in new York state.

there should be an investigation into how MV can agree to take in the 700 hundreds of "pre-Nursing" students when they accept under one hundred each year into the nurising program. The college reaps all that money in pre req then the student is stuck

The issue is they are a public school offering a highly sought after program. They can't deny people admission to MVCC because it's open admissions.

I do know that the pre nursing thing was put into place because they had too many unprepared people wanting in as well as many who were let in, but flunked out. It was also due to the high number of applicants. Simply put, they took the best applicants and gave them a spot in the program. The rest would be wait listed anywhere else, but MVCC created this pre nursing, which has no guarantee that the student will ever get in. If you look at the pre nursing advisors, it should tell you something. None have an ounce of nursing background.

I agree that there are people not able to handle a nursing program, but they should be told that outright and not given false hope while wasting their own money as well as financial aid. In the end, the school gets the money and its enrollment is inflated so they look good on paper.

Bad practice, but that is MVCC for you.

Perhaps the reason their board pass rate dropped so much is because they have someone like Susan Perry Zasa Williams or whatever name she is going by teaching students, or is she just sleeping with students now, or is she drunk in the ditch, or is she peddling coccaine? I cannot keep track of her, but maybe they should consider getting some teachers who have some morals, well isn't that a novel idea?

If they have good grades they can transfer to other nursing programs.

mvcc should be ashamed of the rep they are getting . everyone is talking about the chaos at the school . they are becoming a joke . pam faas can not seem to make a decision and there are teachers sleeping with students . none of the students seem to have any idea what to do and many of them already have terrible attitudes . SHAME ON YOU MVCC !!
