Del Mar College Wrongs Nursing Students

Students that have successfully completed and passed all of the Del Mar College Nursing Program curriculum are being denied the right to graduate and take the NCLEX exam. Students are left with the knowledge and skills to practice nursing but denied the ability to take the licensure exam and become gainfully employed. This is a drain on the economy as student loans are defaulted on and the nursing shortage increases. Schools have accepted funds to increase enrollment without adequately preparing to meet that need and then to protect their accreditation (assure 80% first time NCLEX pass rate), schools are administering a pre-bar to be eligible to take the NCLEX. The New Jersey Board of Nursing took a stand in October 2011 after a complaint from a group of students in July 2011. PLEASE. Take a stand. Hold these schools accountable. We have demonstrated our aquired skills and knowledge throughout nursing school and earned passing grades.
