What is failing at your school?

  1. I was just wondering how you failed your program. In my program you can't make less than a 71 on 2 tests during the semester and you have to pass your comprehensive final or you fail the course. I was just curious how his compared to other schools.

    There are several requirements to pass at my school.

    You have to have a 75 average at the end of the semester.
    You have to make 90 or better on your med calc test.
    You must be satisfactory in clinical, only 2 areas can be unsatisfactory, and they can't be patient safety, professionalism, or med administration.

    less than a 78 is failing.

    at the end of the last three semesters, we take a test called hesi. it is different questions every time. the first 2 times you take it, you must score at least an 85%. the third semester, you must score at least a 90%.

    in clinical, you must score at least a satisfactory in all areas.

    you must score 100% on your med calc test every semester.

    Hmm let's see...
    You have to have a C or better in any nursing class to pass. A C is a 77. Clinicals and labs are S/U. If you get a U in either of those you fail the course.

    We must make a 75 on EVERY test... there is one re-take if you fail the retake you are out... Can only come back to the program once..

    Must make a 100 on the Exit Math exam every semester

    Clinicals/Paperwork are Pass/Fail

    Anything lower than 80% is failing (such as a 79.9%).

    Anything less than a 78 average is failing, as well as not passing a clinical skill after 3 tries or not passing the med exam with a 90 or better. We have a HESI at the end of each semester, you have 2 chances to pass that exam or you cannot go on to the next semester.

    We are graded on clinicals as pass or fail, we have 2 care plans per class and they are pass or fail.The tests are what I have a hard time with. you must get above 75 on 2 and 84 or better on one. B- is passing.

    We must average a 76% (C) to pass our theory, clinicals are pass-fail.

    To pass you must:
    1.Make a 75 AVERAGE on all tests- but individual test grades below 75 are okay as long as your average is there.
    2.Make a satisfactory in Clinical
    3.Make a satisfactory in all skills lab check-offs
    4.Pass the "ERI", a standardized exam, at the national average
    5.Pass a dosage calculation exam at 100%

    You have to maintain B's in all nursing classes and a 3.0 total average at Barry. Once you drop below a B you're outta here
