Just wondering why students are not getting a discount with nursing uniforms for MV school of nursing? After pricing around, Josies store in NH shop ctr, who supplies, is charging 65 bucks for outfit with patch; shoes $65; lab coat 27 bucks; a lousy watch for 50 bucks; and a graduation outfit for $120 to go to financial aide for billing. I am sure I can find these items for a fair value by pricing around.

After looking around on prices, I have found these to be way more than normal for a student for nursing goods.

School must be getting something from this I think.

Don't believe then look at the list yourself before attending school.

It's just like the text-book racket. They change 3 words, put out a new edition and then charge you $200 for a book you'll read and use for one semester.

it is a racket....gouge on pricing and then end up with high school loans in the end on top of it. I understand places need to make money, but those prices for outfits are what I see full retail and then you multiply that on the class and see what money is being made. When having a lot of students to deal with then the cost should be fair for each. If it were only for a few students at a time then I can see charging full price, but I assume there are more than a few going to that store for supplies.

for what you pay for the program..the uniforms should be free for them at least and paid by the school...you pay in the end anyway for it.

Don't be cheap...we are trying to get by as parents best we can and when we see things a bit costly then we question it....nothing wrong with that.

Schools generally gouge and gouge til students can't pay anymore and some. Left then with much school debt and no job offerings afterwards.
I agree

Although I didn't major in nursing at MVCC, I remember well the "text book racket".. as you said, change a few words, call it the Fourth or Fifth edition, and then you compare it to the Second Edition your friend used two semesters back and there is not enough difference to justify paying $100.00 for the new one instead of paying your friend 10 bucks for their old book!

And you know what would really tick me off? Was when a professor would insist a certain expensive book be purchased and then use it once the entire semester..or worse..one year I had to buy a $75.00 book that did not get used once!! And every semester, they get away with this!

On a related point, with the large numbers of college graduates in general who are unable to repay their huge student loans, definately this sort of racket should be illegal!

why would the school buy the books back if they are not reused?

Here's the way I see it, cutie. For the chicks that actually become nurses, the uniforms, supplies and text books are an investment in their future. For the chicks who drop out, they can use the uniforms as a "hot nurse" outfit when they get a job at Peepers. It's a win-win any way you slice it.

people should really know what they are talking about , we are 7 students at mvcc , grad uniforms were only $60.00 for top and bottom . no watch was higher than $30.00 . lab coat were between 25 and 30 dollars . we found shoes on sale there for $40.00 the voucher is what we have left for any other nursing needs including books . the staff was kind and helpful when sizing us . there is no racket or backroom deals there is only the truth of which business certain faculititys want to do their business with . people should educated themselves when they are in business rather than spend all their time and efforts on slander .

You need to repeat English 1 & 2. But then again, it's MVCC.
