BCC ‘setback’

A GROUP of nursing students at the Barbados Community College (BCC) are protesting vigorously after being informed yesterday that courses they had started this semester would now be suspended.

Instead, the 21 students said they would have to do over a course in nursing fundamentals for the remainder of the semester and only if they passed that course in December, would they be able to start over the discontinued courses next semester.

Some upset students who contacted the DAILY NATION yesterday, said this was as a result of 36 failing the exam in nursing fundamentals.

However, the students said what had them confused was that only last Thursday, a senior official in the nursing division assured them that because so many had failed the course, no fault would be laid at them and they would be given a remedial crash course in the subject while continuing to study their other subjects.
