No, he is not mentally disabled just selfish. He lost his job and I am sure he felt like he was going to pay it back. Unfortunately, he had horrible living conditions with people that didn't help the situation. He, I am sure, didn't realize that monitor all of that if his moms bills weren't being paid first. I am surprised it really took this long for it to catch up with him. Downward…

It should be noted that the responsibility for the problems presented are solely in the hand of the administrators and not the teachers. Many teachers have been complaining about this for a long time. It finally took one to leave QPS and report it. Seems QPS doesn't encourage ethical behavior inside the walls.

Reputable nursing facilities DO NOT take control of the elderly person's estate and "deposit it into their own pockets", Chris. Legally (and ethically) they are prevented from doing so. Typically a family member is designated to hold power of attorney over their elderly relative's financial matters, at the time of their admission. (Either that, or the courts can appoint someone to look…

PracticalNursing.org Ranks JWCC a Top Ten Nursing Program in the State of Illinois

3 months, 1 week ago by Bryan Nichols

97% pass rate cited as main reason for high rating

John Wood Community College's Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program is ranked among the top ten in the state by PracticalNursing.org. 

JWCC's four-year National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) average pass rate of 97.96 percent was the major component used to rank the College's program ninth among the state's 43 community colleges that offer nursing.  Only two percentage points separated the 1st and 10th ranked programs in Illinois.  

The NCLEX-PN exam is a nursing proficiency exam, used to determine both the efficiency of a nursing program's teaching and to measure students' preparation to enter the medical field.  Because this test is administered to nursing students nationwide, PracticalNursing.org feels that NCLEX-PN exam results are the strongest indicator of nursing success. 

The results of this study were taken from a sample of compiled NCLEX-PN test scores of JWCC nursing students over the past four years.  JWCC's scores were then compared to those of 43 other institutions in the state of Illinois.  JWCC students scored higher than 80 percent of other nursing students in Illinois.

"We are always striving to have the best nursing instruction and student experiences possible," said Lisa Tournear, chair and assistant professor of health sciences at JWCC.  "This ranking shows our students exceed expectations, and our program will continue to produce graduates ready to provide excellent patient care."
