Nursing School Grading Scale

  1. Hello there,

    I'm wondering what kind of grading school you have (or had if you're graduated now) in your nursing school. At the University of Portland an A is 95-100, A- is 91-94.9, B+ is 88-90.9, B is 83-87.9, B- is 80-82.9, and a failing score is below 73.

    I'm trying to see if this is in-line with other nursing schools in the area. It seems like our A range can be near impossible sometimes. Especially since we don't round up or down (i.e. a 94.82 is a 94.82 or an A-).

    Thanks,
    Evan

    Linfield:
    No A+
    A= 93-100 Generally no rounding
    A-= 90-92.9
    B+ = 87 - 89.9
    B= 83- 86.9
    B- = 80- 82.9
    Below 73 is also a fail. I did wish that we had A+ grades to balance out the A- grades.

    My nursing school grading scale here in Indiana was this:
    A= 93-100
    B= 83-92
    C= 74-82
    Anything under a 74 (with rounding used) was failing although , we had no
    A-B+-C+-

    Just FYI

    At my nursing school:

    A = 90 -100%
    B = 80 -89%
    C = 77 - 79%

    Anything lower then a 77% does not pass.

    90-92 A-
    87-89 B+
    84-86 B
    80-83 C
    Anything lower than 80 F! Good Luck to me!!

    Univ Wisconsin Milwaukee CON (BSN) grades as follows:
    A 95-100
    A- 93-94
    B+ 91-92
    B 87-90
    B- 85-86
    C+ 85-84
    C 79-83

    Anything below a 79 and you can not progress in the major, and must repeat the class until you earn at least a 79. Not for the faint of heart.
