    Our grading scale:

    A+ 90-100
    A 85-89
    A- 80-84
    B+ 75-79
    B 70-74
    B- 65-69
    C+ 60-64
    C 55-59
    D 50-54

    C is required to pass any nursing course. D is required for any non-nursing course.

    I thought I'd peek in to see other grading systems since I thought all nursing cirriculum was graded similarily. I have to get at least 93% just for an A-. I wish I was in a school where it was 91 and up for an A. It's very irritating to get 92% and be considered a B student. Oh well.

    Are you serious? What every happened to the 10 point grading scale??

    You have an A+ if you receive a 90%?! 50-54 is a D? That grade is an F at my school.

    I am second semester this semester we have the following examinations on "Theory";

    2 - OB Tests
    2 - Peds. Tests
    3 - Med/Surg. Tests
    Each test is worth 100 pts.

    We have a comprehensive Final that counts for 30% of our Final grade.

    Our clinical is not graded, it's either pass or fail and really, the only way you would fail it is if you got 3 unsafes or did not make up a missed clinical day.

    We also have a math test at the beginning of the semester that you must pass with a 94% or better but that grade does not count towards our final grade.

    Our grading scale is like many others here on the board where you must maintain a 75% "C" or above or you fail.

    If you fail either the theory or the clinical portion you fail the entire semester and have to repeat it.
