What is or was your nursing school
grading scale? Ours is 77% for a C, 83% for a B and 93% for an A. A few students are upset because it seems to lessen our chances of going on to get accepted into BSN and NP programs, since schools
look at GPA's and not what percentages students received in school. Are most nursing schools using this grading scale? And if so, are other institutions aware of it?

The above seems like the curve we had!
I really didn't pay attention because I told myself to do my best..and if my best wasn't good enough...then it wasn't my thing! I was shocked as heck when I just barely (like 0.01%) didn't make top student! I was second..and I wasn't thinking of that at all!!!!!!!! I was the easy going class clown to put it simply...but having fun and understanding the knowledge given even if I had to translate it all the time in my own learning techniqes paid off! I was so shocked!
Be yourself, but be geared realistically for the tough learning ahead..you will do fine!
