So I am having major issues with this program that is supposed to help me with my training finances for nursing.
Due to having trouble keeping a non-medical job and being laid off--I decided to go back to school for Medical. Nursing specifically.
They have pretty tough requirements because it is so in demand. First off I needed my CNA license. I did not ask for any help with this training because I was told repeatedly that if I got help with my CNA license that they would not help with NURSING. So I did that on my own.
So now I am in the program and need help with the NURSING training and I went to the office 3 weeks ago. They gave me the runaround requested my transcript and all kinds of BS.
What really upset me is that I went promptly to the office after my Orientation Session to get the process started ASAP. And I overheard one of the other girls in the nursing program talking to a case worker--she was discussing MY MAJOR ISSUE--insurance will not cover shots and the physical needed for the program (I am looking at over 300 dollars in medical expenses JUST TO GET MY SHOTS). The worker reassured her they would handle everything and just give them the necessary information and paperwork.
my turn--runaround, request for transcript...etc. Told supervisor would have to look at my case because I have an Associate's Degree or there might not be 2 years to my program.
Told I wold receive a call. 3 weeks later. I CALL THEM.
Then they told me that because I have a CNA license they will not assist me with training for nursing???? What? Everyone has to have a CNA license to be in the Nursing Program???? Why tell everyone that they will help with Nursing Training if they won't???
I called the supervisor to file my complaint of being treated discriminatorily. She is looking at my case right now.
I was so mad, upset about this FOR WEEKS. I can't believe it. I am really struggling right now to pay my bills--I most likely will have to pay my medical expenses on my credit card.
BUT I AM MOST UPSET, because clearly they are TREATING ME DIFFERENTLY than a fellow nursing student.
Sorry I just needed to vent. Nobody seems to understand. I feel so defeated and I haven't even started! Yet, I am the student at the top of the class. Aces all the exams, tutors fellow classmates. Someone to be looked up to. And I feel like a piece of $hit. And like I will never make it--I grew up poor, and no matter how smart I am--I feel like I will just NEVER get anywhere in life!
somebody slap me!
