Petition Tag - nursing students
We the Nursing Students are not against ITT Technical Institute Breckinridge School of Nursing. We are also not against the HESI exit examination. We are against implementation of an unjust academic policy by ITT Technical Institute Breckinridge School of Nursing in the last quarter of our nursing program.
We the nursing students are against how ITT Technical Institute Breckinridge School of Nursing is using the HESI (Health Education System, Inc.) exit examination to hold our nursing degree although we have completed and successfully passed all other academic requirements. ITT's Breckinridge School of Nursing is trying to bolster their NCLEX pass rates by eliminating students that did not reach an 850 from the test pool. They are using the HESI exit exam as a means to protect their own pass rates as they seek accreditation. ITT’s nursing program has a pass rate of 100% as it stands, because not all of the students were allowed to sit for boards. This passing rate alone will attract new students to ITT’s nursing program at an already inflated $500+ a credit hour.
Students are being denied transfer credits from a accredited summer course. Summer courses offered by Southern Vermont College aren't visually posted or told how to sign up for. There is little to no communication between students and advisors.
Advisors are signing students up for classes that they don't have the prerequisites for. Students don't have the necessary information or help to sign up for classes. The decreased ability for students to be student athletes (especially Nursing students).
