How Many students have dropped out of your LVN program?

  1. 0 We started with 33 students and now we're down to 24. We just had our cardio final last Thursday and many of my classmates failed! Are the drop rates that bad in all the other LVN programs!?!?!?

    Well it's been 18 years since my LPN program, but we started with 30 students and at the end only 10 of us graduated! I think that is still pretty typical for most programs.

    I think it depends on the school as well. The drop rate if any is very low at my college and most classes have 100% pass rate when taking the nclex the first time around.

    This is for an RN class, I just looked through the class schedules for the first semester students (which I'm not in yet). Right before classes started they had 101 enrolled. Now after the first week, they have 94.
