Letter: Questions standards of nursing program
I think part of the decline [at Southern Vermont College] was the nursing program decided to switch as their program mid-season and tested students without teaching them the subject first. Students will also find that when they transfer out, a very minimal amount of credits will be accepted by other colleges. My son had about 30 credits and a community college in Connecticut only took about nine of them because the course substance and meeting the college standards for the classes were not being taught. I'm surprised SVC kept their accreditation for as long as they did.
