PLEASE RESPOND. THANK YOU.
Please I am asking everyone that comes by, to please please please respond to this message and not just read it and then go on by. Please do respond to it. Thank you so much.
What is your grading scale for the nursing program that you are attending right now, or will be attending in the future, or already attended [if it has been 1 yr or 30 yrs or more, does not matter]. I want to know and need to know. Thank you.
The reason why I am wanting this information is because the nursing program that I am attending right now, the grading scale is as follow: 93 to 100 = A
86 to 92 = B
80 to 85 = C
74 to 79 = D
73 or below = F
Yes, I want to compare our grading scale and yes I am getting up a petition to take to the President of my college to have the grading scale changed for the nursing program.
I have talked to several nursing students who goes to several other colleges and their grading scale is on a 10 point grading scale...meaning, 90 to 100 = A; 70 - 79 = C -- Passing.
So please, don't just read this message and not respond to it. I would love to hear from you thank you.
And also, the nursing program that I am going through is an ADN program, 2 years.
We have 4 levels that we have to proceed through.
And believe me, none of them [the Levels], prepares you for the following level(s). But each instructors in the following level(s) expects you to come in there knowing it all.
Also, thank you for stopping by and reading the other message I have posted ["Will I ever become a Nurse..."]. Your encouaging words and support means so much to me during this time of my life. Thank you.

Below this seems irrlevant BECAUSE to be considered passing in the nursing program you had to maintain a 75 (that's a C) average.
The policy was You had to average a 75 on all your exams. If you did then they would calculate in all you quizes, homework, projects, care plans
, etc., which would then raise you grade.
If you did not have a 75 average on your exams then it did not matter what you got on these other things your final grade would then be what ever your average on your exams was.
I ended up with a 73 average on my exams in one class. The final letter grade I got was D+. Even though it technically was a C-. I never questioned it because I knew that I would go back and repeat the course. I guess they gave me a D+ because for any other area in the college that would have been an acceptable grade. Only a D or F would have to be repeated. If they had calculated in my careplans, quizes projects and papers I would have had a much better grade. However, the policy was spelled out clearly in writing and was understood by everyone.
Clinicals were pass/fail. The fact is the instructors has a lot of leaway in grading and do most places. It is near impossible to do strictly objective grading in this type of training.
