IT AMAZES ME THAT INTERNAL AUDITS ARE NOT DONE ON A MONTHLY OR AT LEAST QUARTERLY BASES IN ORDER TO NIP THIS KIND OF BEHAVIOUR IN THE BUD. WHEN A COMPANY OR IN THIS CASE COMM. COLLEGE GETS WACKED LIKE THIS THROUGH CARELESSNESS IT IS HARD NOT TO BLAME THE 'VICTIM'.

It's wrong to judge anyone without having all evidence at your fingertips. Just because you read the information the press has provided to you does not mean what they are telling you is the truth.

Why do you type in all 'cap' letters? Not only is it harder to read that but it is the net equivalent to shouting.

I intended for my message to be the equivalent of shouting. I work for a company that was ripped off in a much larger way over a shorter period of time and I know for a fact that internal audits would easily have detected a problem. I have zero tolerance for theft and unaccountability.

Proper accounting procedures require a manager to sign off on procurement card statements monthly and a periodic review by the controller. In my never humble opinion, a manager should be arrested and charged with abetting!

what the hell? i certainly don't feel "screwed". a "real school"? what, UNF? i have saved a LOT more money going to FCCJ, and i certainly do value smaller class sizes and just as good (if not better) professors!
don't even knock on our nursing program, we have one of the highest NCLEX passing rates in florida. we are always tied with UNF, most of the time we beat them.
the quality of education at FCCJ has absolutely nothing to do with this story. some lame-o employee that wasn't even a professor stole some damn money. now shut the eff up.

Good for you RN student. My wife graduated from the program in 2005. She did her clinicals at St. Vincents, worked there for a couple of years and now she is at Shands. She loves it. Also, her w-2 for last year was $82,571 (lots of OT)

Lets stick to the subject.Maybe out side auditors will come in to investigate this but all the funds and how they are being distributed. Starting at the top, no one should be excluded.
