Looking at some posts both in this forum and in the PRE-CRNA forum, I'm interested to know what the "wash out" rate is at your, or other, schools? What rate do you think is fair?
Part of the reason I ask is this....lots of nursing schools (regular BSN or ADN schools) are pulling from generally the same group of large applicants. Some schools wash out 5% of their students, some wash out 90% of their students (this is a local survey in the Houston area).
The only way these programs are monitored by the Texas Board is their pass rate on the NCLEX, so if they take in 100 students, fail 99 of them, and the one that graduates passes the NCLEX, the school gets a good review.
How do you feel about CRNA programs?
What is a "good" or acceptable wash out rate?
I think that a school should be forced to tell a student if the school has a higher than average wash out rate, because, on the whole, most applicants are nearly uniform
between schools, and a high wash out rate would indicate to me that the school has the problem, not the student.
