Am I imagining things or "it happens" that 1/2 of a senior nursing class can fail out of a nursing program? This is what I am hearing about that is happening at a local nursing BS program. Why allow students to reach almost to the end of their program and drop them when they do not make a passing mark? Does this sound as part of the schools
teaching approach or just students not applying themselves. I heard that most of the 1/2 that failed their senior level proved that they can pass the NCLEX mock or predictive test. Is this a necessary action to ensure a high NCLEX pass rate?
