1. I only remember 77-83=C, and this was in the RN program that I was in at first. I did not pass my last semester by 76.7. This was of course a D and the grades were not rounded. I was crushed but was accepted into the LPN program the next semester.
2. Anything below 80 percent was failing. And.......100 percent on our math tests given every 8 weeks. (We could retake the math test once.)

Anything below 80 percent was failing. And.......100 percent on our math tests given every 8 weeks. (We could retake the math test once.)

We need an 80% on our math tests and we can retake it another 2 times.
4. Our school is pretty strict.
90-100=A
80-89.9=B
75-79.9=C
Below 75=F
And yes, they fail people that get a 74.9.

We also have to pass a math test every semester. We get two tries to get 100%, then, we are out of the program. No one has ever failed the math test the second time around though. We have a 100% pass rate for the NCLEX, so if you make it through the program, you are pretty much guaranteed to pass your boards. The problem is it's really tough to make it through the program.

5. 76.5 (C)= Nursing Degree at Florence-Darlington Technical College. And I thought that was high. Some of you have to have 80's and 85's! WOW
6. 93-100A

7. 90-100 = A
80-89 = B
79.9 and below = failing

Hello, again.

What is your grading scale for the nursing program that you are attending right now, or will be attending in the future, or already attended [if it has been 1 yr or 30 yrs or more, does not matter]. I want to know and need to know. Thank you.

The reason why I am wanting this information is because the nursing program that I am attending right now, the grading scale is as follow: 93 to 100 = A
86 to 92 = B
80 to 85 = C
74 to 79 = D
73 or below = F

Yes, I want to compare our grading scale and yes I am getting up a petition to take to the President of my college to have the grading scale changed for the nursing program.

I have talked to several nursing students who goes to several other colleges and their grading scale is on a 10 point grading scale...meaning, 90 to 100 = A; 70 - 79 = C -- Passing.

So please, don't just read this message and not respond to it. I would love to hear from you thank you.

And also, the nursing program that I am going through is an ADN program, 2 years.

We have 4 levels that we have to proceed through.

And believe me, none of them [the Levels], prepares you for the following level(s). But each instructors in the following level(s) expects you to come in there knowing it all.

Also, thank you for stopping by and reading the other message I have posted ["Will I ever become a Nurse..."]. Your encouaging words and support means so much to me during this time of my life. Thank you.

Ours was the same as yours and anything under a C was failing...it was only the nursing school though not the rest of the college and supposedly it was to weed people out...we had a very high passing rate on the boards which was actually why I chose to go there in the first place.
