    We started with 64, we'll be graduating with about 48. Not too bad.

    I'm finding it very surprising how many people are dropping out of the program. If this was the hunger games, that cannon would have gone off every day, maybe even several times a day. I look around and think about someone I wanted to to ask a question and they're gone! Did you have the same experience? It sucks to see so many people drop so fast this semester.
    We started with 80+ during our first semester. We had 33 at the beginning of the second semester. Our school usually begins with 70-100 students in level one...amount graduated from those classes are usualy 15-25 or so.

    In both LPN and RN school I remember losing 5-10 students in the first month or two of school, after that it was only 1 or 2 for the rest of the year. I don't believe any of these actually just dropped out, their grades dropped and they failed out.

    My class of 60 has only lost 2 so far. One due to pregnancy, and she came back the next semester with the class behind us, and another by choice. We are almost 75% done and graduate in May. My school has a great reputation and I am just lucky to be in a class of smart and dedicated students. Admission is based on lottery so it was pure luck that my class is like this. We have been hearing from all of our instructors that our class scores much higher than average. I think that this has built up a sense of pride among us and we try to help eachother make it to that finish line.
