The Lab and Simulation Lab in the schoolBrightNursing
The Lab and Simulation Lab in the school is run poorly. We are to buy a 100 dollar nursing kit that comes with supplies that will be used in lab; for example a Foley catheter, secondary and primary tubing and 1000 ml NS bags and 100 ml IVPB. Although it is nice to have our own supplies, it is my understanding that the school should provide us with all needed supplies and avoid the students from additional expense. There is a lack of supplies and organization in the lab. We would have stations in the lab to rotate to; adjunct and full time faculty members were not sure what we were supposed to be doing on a specific day. There is a lack in communication between the faculty members. One faculty member would say one thing and one would say another. We were all getting mixed information from most faculty members, information that would be important for exams and our future careers. There was no standard they followed; a large portion of information was off the top of their heads and not by our textbooks or what NCLEX would require. Lab was always overcrowded and a group that was not participating in a simulation was sitting on the side with no specific task at the time. There is a lack of infusion pumps, IV and IVPB, normal saline bags, primary and secondary tubing and correct simulation medication. We ?make believe? half the time rather than perform the skill because of confusion, an unorganized scenario or lack of supplies.

I am concerned about the intentions of the faculty members and whether they really do want us in the program or are solely concerned about their own NCLEX pass rates and reaccreditation. I am concerned our voice as a class is muffled. I am concerned that I am paying so much money for a less than par education and unmerited mental stress. I am concerned the faculty members do not treat the students equitably or with compassion, in some instances. I am concerned the school and program looks better on paper than they actually do in their actions and with all communication that is not on record.Please understand there are other options for Nursing Schools on Long Island, inquire about them first before looking at NYIT. The nursing school needs a wake up call, the institution does not deserve accreditation.

NYIT is a backwards, pitiful excuse of aFine Arts - Painting/Sculpture/Photography/etc
NYIT is a backwards, pitiful excuse of a college. The full time faculty in the Fine Arts department were without a doubt the most under-qualified, self-absorbed bunch of trash you will ever find in any institution. They had no functional skills whatsoever. I was supposed to be getting a degree in animation, but none of my full time faculty had worked a single day of their lives, in any capacity, in the field of animation. They were all meddling art theorists with pitiful careers at low level, postmodern group shows and galleries. Even though this is what they claimed to be good at not a single one had any name recognition in the NY gallery scene. They taught solely to their interests like sound art and non-figurative digital sculpture. Many of them couldn't even draw in basic perspective and none of them could draw the human form realistically at all. None of this was helpful as you can imagine. Yuko Oda the "technology coordinator" was practically brain dead. I watched her cry in my senior project class after she couldn't get a tutorial from the book to work and had to have other students assist her through it. It was later exposed that she stole work from the training website Digital Tutors and presented it as her own. DO NOT GO TO SCHOOL HERE FOR FINE ARTS ANIMATION!

Current student, prospective student and whoever might beQuite BrightNursing
Current student, prospective student and whoever might be reading this, please hear what I have to say. The reason you are here, reading this, is because maybe you are interested in NYiT, which I commend you for doing as your search for a school. Others may be current students looking for some input on there current experience. There are some peculiar positive reviews on here which warrant the schools involvement and also some comments written in anger.

Now let me get to the point. I am a real current student, that drives to school everyday, I have an id number and attend classes. I speak for many of the students here and within in my program (nursing) that it has been quite the headache attending NYiT. I am going to have to side with the negative comments, most definitely. Do not attend the nursing program here. Please listen to me. There are so many other great schools in the area where you can get a great education and be happy. SCCC (associate program), Farmingdale, Adelphi, Molloy and more. Take a look at them first. Do not be hypnotized by the scholarship from NYiT, it really is true most students get it. I say most because I do not know all the students on campus or their status, but all of my fellow students do receive some sort of scholarship. There is so much confusion within the program, there's is no consistency, and unfortunately, something you will never be able to change is the fowl personalities of the faculty. I am baffled by the lack of interest in our future and status in the program. The list goes on. It is quite unbelievable that what I am saying can be true, right?

If you must attend, which I still do strongly NOT advice, apply for additional scholarship. It is your best bet to try and save some money. Obviously many will still come to the school so I would like to equip you with some tactics to survive an experience you will try to forget but will haunt you until the day you leave. Below I have provided a link for a scholarship request form, give it a try, current students as well. has changed me. I has made me hardened and cold. The school drives you to a bi-polar like state, where one minute you are content and the next you are utterly furious. I do not have any more to say. Stay away, good luck and to the current students, I commend you, It's been a bumpy mother fucking ride.
