Our class started out with 72 students. Like most schools, it's a competitive program which takes 1-2 years of pre-Nursing school pre-req's to get into.... so the assumption is only the most dedicated will get in.
Between 1st and 2nd semester we lost THIRTEEN students! Some didn't pass. At least two I know of were pregnancies/births.
One classmate commented to me that he heard our school's drop-out rate by the time graduation came around was 60%.
Is it normal to have so many students not make it?
