My nursing class is graduating this month. It is a new program, and we will be the first graduating class. Our class started with 30 students. 15 students made it to the final quarter, and 13 passed. We are required to take an exit Hesi exam prior to graduating. The school has given the test 3 times, and only 8 out of the 13 students have passed it. Our pinning ceremony is this week, and the school is allowing all of the 13 students to be pinned and march at graduation even though 5 of them have not passed the Hesi and therefore have not fulfilled all of the graduation requirements. As a person who worked my ass off throughout the program and passed the Hesi with flying colors, this upsets me. I know it doesn't personally affect me, but in my opinion it makes a mockery of my ceremony when it involves people who don't deserve it. What are your thoughts?
