Nursing School Grading Scale

  1. 0
    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.

    93-100 A
    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.
