    I'm sorry that it's difficult on your eyes, maybe I shouldn't have color coded it and it would have been easier. For me I like color coding because it stands out more. Sorry if it hurt your eyes. Thanks for the input.

    you will be happy to know that originally the green was changed from [color=yellow]yellow hahaha. i will know for next time to stay away fom the green and maybe try for the olive green instead. for some reason right now it wont let me edit and i don't know why.

    Copper Mountain College 53.2 (53 Students), 2006-2009

    Wow...that's crazy...although they've had such few students.

    Thanks for the info, it's really interesting to look at (and the colors are a nice touch!)

    To be clear these are the % of students that passed the NCLEX not the % of students that made it through the program. Its an important distinction. For Example Chabot has a 97.3% passing rate for the NCLEX which sounds great until discovering that 60% of students who entered the program actually graduated. I found that the number of students that survive a given program is not as easy to find as the NCLEX rate. Hope this helps.
