My goal is just to graduate ...... sounds silly, but the director of my program is a little hitler.... Look at her wrong and she'll find a way to get rid of you! (I'm not kidding!) We started with 35 students in Jan 02, and now we are down to 15!! I'm flying below the radar and trying not to cause any waves! I want to eventually work in the ED!
Wasn't there any prerequisites needed to enter? Or was if your body is still warm, you were in? Sounds like something is seriously wrong with their admittance procedures.
But hand in there Howie and at the rate they are loosing students, you might be one of 2.4 that graduate

Our University also ends up with about 1/2 the starting amount of students. But we also have a 100% pass rate for the NCLEX. That being said, sometimes people don't realize how difficult a nursing program really is and try to "get by" which doesn't work in our program. You have to give it your all (life, heart and pretty much your soul) to make it.
Just because a program has a "high dropout rate" doesn't mean that the program is bad, perhaps it means that it is an excellent program.
