    You need a 75 at our school for a C. I can't imagine anything higher than that? Good luck to those that have to pull an 80 all I can say is

    in our program, the minimum grade for passing was 80%. a few people that got 79.5% failed.... no leeway whatsoever.
    this was stressed to us today. 74.9999 is failing!

    In our school your testing average has to be above 79.5% not the overall average after papers and clinicals are averaged in. The overall grade scale is: 100-94 A, 93-87 B, 86-80 C.

    I just thought I'd let you all know about good ole Kansas. The nursing program I am in the min. is 80%. How many people are usually in everyones classes? They accept 45 and then they dwindle. They actually figure that only 40 or less will actually make it to the second year. Just curious???

    Mine is a colaborative BScN program, and the grading is a little weird.. you need a 60 to pass a course, 70 in core courses, and an overall 70 average to continue in the program...and still people failed..i dont know..it sucks if you fall a little below, like 69.9 in your overall (not me thank god!) but i guess it weeds out the ones who dont have their hearts in it

    here in little podunk southeast ohio, we are required to have a 76% average. they do round up.

    we start with about 50 and usually only 30 or so make it to graduation. but we do have a 99.8% pass rate on boards the first time around.

    Here you have to pass with the average of 75%=C. They do round off if you get a 74.5=75. The formula that everyone knows here is
    C=RN

    At my school you can't make below a 78 or you will have to repeat.
