I started my nursing career in Florida National University in January 2020 in the Hialeah campus to become a nurse. After seeing so many ads on TV, buses and billboards, it seemed FNU would be a great choice to embark on this challenging career. However, little did I know what awaited for me in the coming semesters. As a foreign doctor in my home country Cuba and holding a previous a bachelors degree here in the US, I falsely believed that I had a realistic chance of becoming a nurse. Instead, I found myself in a school that was so money hungry it created new obstacles to overcome semester after semester. For example, the first policy they implemented after starting the program required that all students obtain an 80% in all exams combined before any other points can be added (like hw, projects) to pass the class. In essence, there was no room to even fail or get a low score in one exam because if you did you would fail the class. On the next semester, the schools implemented a one minute per question policy for all exams including dosage calculations and midterms/finals. Seeing that not enough people had failed, the school proceeded to add even more changes. On the last semester, they added two predictor exams that were pass or fail before you could sit for the exit exam. In terms of the exit exam, if you failed after one attempt, you would have to wait 4 months to retake it again. Just to be clear all these changes were made across both the Hialeah and south campus. As an adult student, I also found their program to be inflexible with the schedule for people who need to work to support their families. For instance, you would never get your class schedule on time, making it impossible to coordinate with your other responsibilities. Additionally, the nursing program itself was a very tense and toxic environment. Students from other classes were discouraged from talking to each other or communicating in the halls for unknown reasons. It felt like I was in back in Cuba. In fact, one time two professors were caught talking about the physical appearance of multiple students while online, thinking their mics were off. To be honest, what drove me to leave the school at the start of my last semester was an orientation where we were introduced to the new directors of the nursing program Penelope Pattalitan and Yunieski Farradas. Mrs. Pattalitan especially was very dismissive and disrespectful to the whole class when we decided to voice our concerns and questions about all the new changes that were happening. In the end, myself and 30+ students across Hialeah and south campus decided to leave because it seemed that were being set up for failure no matter how hard you study. We also had multiple teachers advising us to leave before we failed and lose our money with them which was their ultimate goal. SO IF YOU’RE THINKING ABOUT GOING TO Florida National University BECAUSE YOUR FRIENDS HAVE GONE IN THE PAST AND GRADUATED, ITS NO THE SAME AND MOST LIKELY YOU WILL FAIL, KNOW THAT THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE WALKING INTO. My advice, don’t go to Florida National University if you have other or better options.
Comencé mi carrera de enfermería en Florida National University (FNU) en enero de 2020 en el campus de Hialeah para convertirme en una enfermera. Después de ver tantos anuncios en televisión, autobuses y vallas publicitarias, parecía que FNU sería una gran opción para embarcarse en esta desafiante carrera. Sin embargo, poco sabía lo que me esperaba en los próximos semestres. Como médico extranjero en mi país de origen Cuba y con una licenciatura anterior aquí en los Estados Unidos, creía falsamente que tenía una posibilidad realista de convertirme en enfermera. En cambio, me encontré en una escuela que tenía tanta hambre de dinero que creó nuevos obstáculos que superar semestre tras semestre. Por ejemplo, la primera política que implementaron después de comenzar el programa requería que todos los estudiantes obtengan un 80% en todos los exámenes combinados antes de que se puedan agregar otros puntos (como tareas, proyectos, etc) para pasar la clases. En esencia, no había lugar para reprobar ni para obtener una calificación baja en un examen porque si lo hiciera, reprobaría la clase. En el siguiente semestre, las escuelas implementaron una política de un minuto por pregunta para todos los exámenes, incluidos los cálculos de dosis y los exámenes parciales y finales. Al ver que no habían fallado suficientes personas, la escuela procedió a agregar aún más cambios. En el último semestre, agregaron dos exámenes de predicción que requieren aprobar o pasar antes de que pudiera presentarse al examen final. En términos del examen de salida de la escuela, si reprobaste después de un intento, tendrías que esperar 4 meses para volver a tomarlo. Para que quede claro, todos estos cambios se realizaron tanto en Hialeah como en el campus sur. Como estudiante adulto, también encontré que su programa era inflexible con el horario para las personas que necesitan trabajar para mantener a sus familias. Por ejemplo, nunca obtendrías tu horario de clases a tiempo, lo que hace imposible coordinar con tus otras responsabilidades. Además, el programa de enfermería en sí era un entorno muy tenso y tóxico. Se desalentaba a los estudiantes de otras clases de hablar entre ellos mismos o comunicarse en los pasillos por razones desconocidas. Me sentí como si estuviera en Cuba. De hecho, una vez, dos profesores fueron sorprendidos hablando sobre la apariencia física de varios estudiantes mientras estaban en línea, pensando que sus micrófonos estaban apagados. Para ser honesto, lo que me impulsó a dejar la escuela al comienzo de mi último semestre fue una orientación en la que nos presentaron a las nuevas directoras del programa de enfermería Penelope Pattalitan y Yunieski Farradas. La Sra. Pattalitan especialmente fue muy fría e irrespetuosa con toda la clase cuando decidimos expresar nuestras preocupaciones y preguntas sobre todos los nuevos cambios que estaban sucediendo. Al final, más de 30 estudiantes de Hialeah y del campus sur decidimos irnos porque parecía que nos estaban preparando para fracasar, sin importar cuánto estudiemos. También tuvimos varios maestros aconsejándonos que nos fuéramos antes de fallar y perder nuestro dinero con la escuela, que era su objetivo final. ASÍ QUE, SI ESTÁS PENSANDO EN IR A LA FLORIDA NATIONAL UNIVERSITY PORQUE TUS AMIGOS HAN IDO EN EL PASADO, NO ES LO MISMO DE ANTES. LO MÁS PROBABLE ES QUE FALLARÁS, SEPA QUE ESTO ES A LO QUE ESTÁS ENTRANDO SI VAS A ESA ESCUELA. Mi consejo es que no vayas a la FLORIDA NATIONAL UNIVERSITY si tienes otras o mejor opciones.
