    75 & above is passing at my school. Being remediated twice on a skill or receiving 2 variances in clincal will also get you pulled from the program.

    A fail is anything below a C (63.5 - 67.9) for nursing theory and clinicals and you must maintain a 2.50/4.00 GPA to continue on. A pass for a med exam is 90% and above.

    That's funny:roll lmao....but I know those are unspoken/unwritten rules in a number of nursing programs.

    Although I haven't heard any rumors about my program in particular ...people have told me to practice my "pucker" to get ready for all that "kissing":kiss

    At Tulsa Community College, you have to pass all theory/lab exams with at least an average of 75.45, pass competencies but with 3 trials, pass care plans with at least a 76 but not counted if theory/lab exams are less than 75.45 , and community papers, pass clinicals with no more than 2 "U's", and all other components with a pass/fail. For some reason my delete button isn't working. e 3 .e

    Hi,
    You must pass each theory class with a 70% or better. Each quarter you must also pass a dosage calculation test at 90%, you can retake these tests twice. If you do not pass, you are out. Clinicals are pass or fail. I think you are allowed to come back once to the program to repeat what you have failed.

    In order to advance to pass Levels. Must have 80% + pass on all clinical experiences on a scale of 1-5 (must have at least a 3 to pass clincial). In addition, pass or fail on Dos. Cal for our Level 1.

    Level 2 is next semester...

    90% on dosage calc
    75% average at the end of the semester in both clinical and theory

    i think it's interesting that some schools demand 80% or better as pass. are those BSN programs?

    also one person said her school considered a C to be in the 60's (63% to 67% i think it read) I have never heard of that kind of scoring system. Has anyone else? Where is that from?

    Hello everyone!
    I am brand spanking new to this board and this will be my first post.
    I am going to school in Illinois and the school I am in is an RN program and you are required to get an 80% or better on all exams. We have 2 papers due in the semester, you have to get a 2 in clinicals and lab and MUST pass the competency exams. You get one chance to retake them, but if you fail them the second time you have to retake the course regardless of what your grade was. An A in this school is like 94 to 100 %.

    When I was attending an LVN program 2 years ago, any score below 78 percent was considered a failing grade.
