What is your overall opinion of this school?

In the past before college, I started being in small classes because I had a problem with speech and other things that I had trouble in Elementary school. As years go on, I still had to go to speech and had smaller classes and I have always wanted to be in a big class. So I worked hard on trying to get really good grades and until I got into High School in Sophomore year, my Counselor told me if I should be put into a bigger class because my grades did improve and I approve the offer and they put me in bigger classes and that showed that I worked hard for it to happen because I never wanted to be in a small class in the first place. I am most likely a hard-working student because even I had some ups and downs I still worked hard to get where I want to be and not to give up. Now that I am in college, it has been two semesters. The first semester was pretty rough and I took it seriously because I do not want to fail and not to retake the class. So I studied a lot; had some useful strategies to help me study and that is how I got good grades and ended with A's and B's. In my second semester, I had four classes and it was a disaster for me; I did not know where to start, I took things lightly. I wish I hadn't done that, but I had to do something because I saw myself in the failing position, so I actually went to the Learning Center for help for only Math125 and Bio103 because they were toughest ones. And you do not know how much it helped me so much and I saw myself getting good grades and so are my other classes and everything I learn from any class I learn it so quickly. I took the advantage to use anything that is open for me for help and my grades tells it all. I would advise that if people or students are having trouble with their classes or grades then I recommend you go to the Learning Centers for any subject because they do help. Back in High School, I did not take the advantage of getting the help I need to have higher grades just because I thought they would be useless. Now that college is a new chapter for me, I can just get what is open for me and use it to my advantage and it has helped me ever since. In the future, I plan on achieving to be a pediatrician, a kid doctor because I love interacting with children and whenever they have a problem especially when I have children I would know what they have in order to help them and be the best child doctor I could be. Because I love working with little children and I find them interesting. Ever since I was a senior in High School in Votech we would got to clinicals to interact with other children. But in college I am planning on transferring next fall to TCNJ in order to my nursing class or program in there and complete most of my prerequisites in MCCC.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have started going to Mercer County Community College on September 5 of 2018 and from there I can tell you that it a perfect 2 years college. It quiet and peaceful there. It may look like it has a few people there but it does not cause most of the students are inside. You know? Doing their school work or applying for clubs or sports. So if you wanna go to school just for 2 years then Mercer County Community College at Trenton, NJ is the place you want to continue your education.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am currently a nursing student at MCCC and it is one of the worst decisions I have made. The director is aware and is trying to fix the issues, and I have faith that she will, but I won't see that in my time at MCCC. The main issue is with exams and a lot of material that you need to know for the NCLEX is not taught, which was a main compliant made a few years ago and reported in The Trentonian. There is also a pediatric HESI in 2nd and 4th semesters, when we never had a pediatrics class or clinical, but the response regarding this is pediatrics is intertwined through the whole program, but it's really not. The amount of students who are not passing the courses is insane due to the lack of knowledge needed to pass the HESIs and exams. If the knowledge is not there, there is no way you can apply it for the exams. Also regarding exams, professors will copy questions that they find on quizlet, Khan Academy or nurseslabs, which are not always accredited websites, and use those for questions on the exams. The questions usually contradict the material in the textbook. I remember one exam I had that more than half the test were questions copied and pasted from nurseslabs.com, with spelling mistakes and all. I had only recognized them because I had completed some nurseslabs questions the night before the exam. I find little to no support from my professors and my advisor, who either never email you back or get back to you regarding questions (minus one, who always gets back right away or will meet you on campus outside office hours). They usually suggest asking your classmates for the answer instead of answering the question themselves. Or when asking how to improve studying-wise, I have received answers of "I can't give you tips because everyone studies differently" or "I don't know," from two different professors. Having a bachelor's degree in another field, I have never experienced this lack of support from my professors nor the condescending attitudes that some of the professors have. I'm not sure how the 1 hour critical thinking course is now, but I feel that the course should focus on breaking down questions and critical thinking. The nursing tutor isn't always available and that's normally what she does with us, shows us how to break down questions, and without her, students are missing that critical piece to do well on exams. It is also jarring to hear that some students in the 4th semester who were A and B students previously are getting scores of 76s and below is upsetting. No matter how hard I work and study, it does not pay off. Clinical is usually good. I did have one clinical instructor where we only did group projects, like matching questions from quizlet instead of doing clinical skills or going with our patient's for treatments (like a PICC line insertion, cardiac cath, etc). My clinical instructor this semester is phenomenal. It's really just the luck of the draw. Regarding lab, the first two semesters you practice skills and that professor is awesome. The other two you aren't really practicing skills, it's more of a lecture with case studies which makes it a waste of time. As someone who loved to learn and loved the idea of becoming a professional student, this school/this program made me lose that passion. I dread going back. I do understand that as a nurse, a person's life is in our hands, but give us the resources and support needed to succeed because without that we lose the passion and the will to try. If you have the opportunity to go somewhere else for your ADN, like St. Francis (which is MCCC affiliated, but AWESOME) or Rowan at BCC, I would recommend them knowing wonderful new nurses that have gone through both programs For those currently in the program, good luck to you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer County College is for those who want to dip their toe into the college life. It's not an overwhelming scene, so it is nice for the first step out of high school. It's a perfect school to gather credits for two years and then transfer them over to another college. It is much cheaper than four-year colleges and more one-on-one with professors than larger colleges. I highly recommend studying here if you enjoy small communities and having a name rather than a number.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer County Community College is a great institution for students who want to get their general education done economically but not sacrifice academic quality. They have great partnerships with other Universities in New Jersey that you can transfer to after completing your required courses. You can even take classes at Mercer for another institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This college has the potential to take students to great places, but it can only be done so if students find or create opportunities on their own. Students must fight and work hard in order to stand out to potential employers and future four-year institutions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There still need some improvements they're working on but based on my own recent experiences, I believe its a good school to start in if you're coming from high school or want to go back to school especially for the undeclared majors to find classes which interest you and related to your intended major/ career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Mercer County is a great place to go if you are not sure which four year school you would like to attend. As a student you will be surrounded by other students that are in the same boat as you, so most everyone around you will be willing to help and support you. Professors tend to be extremely helpful, but when it comes to other faculty members, you may have to push to get anything done.
