ADN program here
78 and below failing.
Tests count 80% of final grade
careplans 20% (but you must have a 78 or above for them to add in your careplans for your final grade...if you have a 77.4 or below and you have made 100's on all your careplans you still fail)
Clinicals and Check off's are on a pass/fail basis.
We have to pass a pharm test each semester and the passing grade goes up with each semester. This past semester it was 80%, next semester will be 85% and so on.
the only complaint that I have about the grading scale is this:
If I pass with a 92.4 that is a B on my college transcript
but if I fail with a 70, I still get a C on my college transcript when in reality it's not a C but an F by the program standards, because the general college scale (usual ten point scale) is lower than the program grading scale.
