I'm curious what the attrition rate is in various nursing programs. For my class (with 19 days 'til graduation) it is roughly 80%. We started with 32 students and will hopefully graduate the remaining 7. What are your numbers?

We started with 20, and have lost 2 (3 if you count the guy who replaced our first dropout..he got a second chance and wound up failing again). One we lost due to a pregnancy (she's back in the program behind us and doing great) and the other we lost due to academics. She had some serious personal issues going on that semester, so it's not really surprising. She was smart enough, she just didn't apply herself at that time.
