I attended Central Nursing College from 12/09/2009 - 4/15/2011. I spent almost 2 years of my life trying to accomplish my dream in becoming a nurse. I first started as a full time student, but then my life got complicated going through a divorce, that's when I switched to part-time, when I had no choice to work in the morning and go to school in the evening and the weekends to give a better life to my daughter. I struggled a lot being a part from my daughter spending days and nights studying. Through the end of my 4th semester I was told I had a balance of $2,746.00. At that time I had no funds to cover the balances. I completed all the Theory hours as well as the Clinical. I also took the exit exam with ATI on 01/17/2011, I had failed the first time. On 04/15/2011 I took my second ATI exit exam and I passed. I finally collected the money to cover my balance. On February 14,2013 I drove to CNC in hope to pay my balance and get my certification. But I was told by Vanessa( financial aid) that I was terminated from the program, because I didn't take the exit exam with ATI. I told her it's impossible because I remember clearly that I took two exit exams. When she looked over my file she didn't find the second exit exam that I took and passed. I asked to speak with DON, numerous times to solve this problem but he refuses to speak to me.
Spending two years of my life at school, having $20,000.00 in student loan and I don't have any certification from school that I finished. Now I am stuck with all this student loans that I have to pay back and no job in the field that I worked & studied so hard for. I really need a solution, help to get my certification and go for my NCLEX. I would really appreciate any help that anyone could provide me. Feels like to me the school did a fraud on me, I don't think its right for them to kill 2 years of my life , take money from me , and after working so hard to collect the money to pay off my balance of $2,746.00 they still refuse to give my certification.
