They need to revamp their entire Nursing Program.
There is much more important things to learn by having the students actually WORK in a hospital with other nurses to learn all about Nursing.
Not everything in life can be learned out of a book!

Did you know that the nursing students DO clinical rotations at the area hospitals. What is it exactly that you think YOU know?

They do work in a clinical setting. Unfortunately many do not possess the preparation and skills to do well when they get there. That is the problem. Whose fault is another matter.

I left after one semester. Half of the people in the program could barely speak English. How can you expect them to do well if they have a hard time understanding English. There were good students in the program, but it was too disorganized for me.
