    We just had our second semester final today and the grades were posted a couple of hours ago. 55 of us took the final. 34 failed (below 80%) and 21 passed (above 80%). No one got above the 85 - 90 range. Second semester was definitely MUCH harder than the first. Hit the ground running.

    Did you like working there? We had our CNA clinicals there back in 07 but I haven't been back since. I think I applied once after getting my LPN but never got a call back.

    We started with 95 at the beginning of the program. Out of that original 95, I think we had about 45 or so going into the final. Some of the students in second semester were returning students who didn't pass in previous classes so they weren't in the original 95.

    edit: Oh 2nd semester we started out with 75 students though (including returnees).
