I just created my account today so I could ask for some help on schools. I am a senior in high school and I applied to 8 nursing programs all in NJ and PA. I have gotten into 4 so far; Ramapo College, East Strodsburg University, Bloomsburg University, and William Patterson University. If anyone has any information and oppinions on any of these schools and their nursing programs it would be greatly appreciated!
Also, I have been looking for NCLEX passing rates for NJ and PA schools and have not been able to find them, so it anyone has a link or an idea where to find them that would also be very helpful!!

Is 40 the normal class size for nursing at ramapo?
Yes, pretty much. Clinicals are ~ 8 students with a professor.
How many students have either dropped out or flunked out of your class if any?
Around 8 first semester (first semester weed out students, we have not lost any since). Don't assume it's because of "bad" or "inadequate" teaching, the following excuses apply ...
Legitimately failed, could not pass tests for whatever reason ... then we have ..
Personal life problems
Didn't care crowd <=== most were these
It's really simple, if you WORK (read: STUDY) for it, you will pass. We are given all the resources in the world (damn you ATI) ... it's your job to use them (and use your free time wisely - the very very very very little of it you actually have).
I answered a whole bunch of questions previously a couple of months ago for someone else, just search for that post if you want more info.
edit: this applies to englewood site only ... the valley kids are completely separate from us
