    I agree, those are dreadful pass rates.

    Rates across the entire US have dropped precipitously since the NCLEX was made more difficult in 2004. The addition of a few alternative-type questions per test-taker certainly hasn't helped either.

    My CC (in Florida) isn't that great either. I think that (along with the waiting list the size of a telephone book) is the main reason they went to a point system as the entrance criteria instead of simply first-come, first-serve. I think they are hoping if they accept students based more on GPA, interview, etc., their rate will improve. Let's hope so.

    Keep in mind we have a lot of people with english as a second language here...I think it is one dimension of the problem....also I'm from the North and I can tell you when I went to MDCC for my prereq's it was much easier than my high school up North. Barry however, is a good school and will demand much of you.
