I only wonder howNursing
I only wonder how Education Division and NLN allow such a terrible school to exist. Not one standard is met, totally negative experience and horrible staff and faculty.

Question
HORRIBLE SCHOOL.Nursing
HORRIBLE SCHOOL. EXTREMELY UNORGANIZED. OLD AND DIRTY. Yes, they have been around for long time, and turned out many nurses, but studying and reading and passing the NCLEX is on you as a student, and if you succeed it is because you worked hard - which you have to because they do not teach you at LICH. Most of the professors are no longer working as nurses and do not have upto date knowledge and lack experience. They teach by reading off of a power-point presentation they either got from the textbook or another / previous professor. They read and don't really explain. Than comes along a good professor who plays catch up to make up for the lost times. You are really on your own at this school, they do not provide any support or assistance, and the staff are not helpful in answering your questions. You have to make pointless appointments to see someone, who sends you to someone else, who never addresses your concerns. If something does not go right, "It is your responsibility" my responsibility? to remind them to bill me? or send a schedule? or get the lab equipment ? NO it is the school's / staff reposnsibility and I should not be forced to remind them to do their jobs. If they cant, hire someone else. WASTE OF MONEY! NOT WORTH IT AT ALL! Everything about the school is nasty, receptionist is clueless, financial aid is always behind, always forgetfull and lost. Professors are not fit to be higher level educators. Facility (come see before thinking of applying). It is cold, old, smelly, dirty ... and no where to go. 1 class room, no where to go except to the actual hospital (to eat, study, wait for class, or just meet with other students). Also, different professor teach 1 class, and than the exam comes.... ??? what the heck is going on here? when did we cover this? MY ADVICE: RESEARCH, COME TO OPEN HOUSE, TALK TO OTHER STUDENTS and LISTEN TO THEM. ( I doubt if you were to stand next to the school and ask a student what they think - that anyone would give you a positive response.)

Question
The lack of organization in the school isBrightNursing
The lack of organization in the school is astonishing. The administrative staff have absolutely no idea of what is happening withing the school or their students. They do not inform you of basic necessities like the schedule for the upcoming semester, the professors are found1 day prior to cliniclas or classes. The lab equipment is practically non existent, or broken. There is no heat in the winter in the classrooms. Bathrooms are out of order, missing paper and basic necessities. The building is old, not clean, dark and uninviting. Some professors are great, others are horrible. There is no unity and the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing. Financial department ... there are no words to describe. Staff are quitting, new ones dont know what is happening. The nursing isntructors do not even know what floor to take the students to. Not only are the students left in the dark, and constantly told "It is your responsibility to find out", the professors are also left in the dark, without a clue of what to do and where to go. If you miss a lab, clinical or an exam, you have to pay $100 to make up, regardless of the excuse - you can be half dead in the ER and it is somehow still your responsibility. You can complain as much as you want, they do absolutely nothing about it. THE WORST SCHOOL in my opinion.
