    Yeah, I was deffinately talking how the system works at my school. I have been told that getting any C's in the nursing program can get you kicked out but I don't know if it is true. I totally agree that there should be more concern then just about grades. I also found out that if you have even a small misdemenor, you can't get into the program for 10 years!!! I think that is outrageous. People make dumb mistakes, it shouldn't mean that you can not get into a profession of helping others because of one mistake.

    Yeah, and at least in the nursing school I'm going to, the grading scale is completely different. Anything below a 75 is failing, so if you have a C average GPA before you even get accepted into the program they probably expect that you will struggle.

    I agree, I have been absolutely working my butt off for the last three years and I ran into a little trouble at a party last summer. So now I'm sitting on nails hoping that it won't prevent me from getting accepted.
