NYCCT students petition against in person finals amid new COVID variant
We NYCCT nursing students do understand that it is within the school’s system and regulations to fulfill the requirements of a hybrid course, but MULTIPLE students have agreed that we do not feel comfortable nor safe to sit in person for the final examination especially with the new COVID variant uprising. In fact, an executive order has been passed December 3rd, whereby the state is declared to be in a “State of Emergency”. Under such circumstances, we do not see it benefiting to be exposed to an infectious virus and put our health at risk for the sake of an exam that can be completed online, just as it has been for the past couple semesters. We do appreciate your hard work of seeing us become successful students and for holding us at your best interest. Thank you.
