Im curious the usual progression of nursing school students going from start to finish. When i graduated practical nursing school we started witg roughly 30 students...11 graduated. I am a few weeks away from graduating this professional nursing program we started with 35+ and now on track to graduate 12 or so. We lost 6 with our last exam. What about you guys?

I think I read the national average is something like 50%. My program allows for one repeat of a failed class, so it might end up higher. But I think we're down to about 75% who are still on schedule to graduate on time in my cohort, and we're only at the halfway point (LPN program).

I am in my last term of a three year BSN program. We have lost two students out of about 30.

63 in. 60 out. I'm in an ADN program. We lost people in our original cohort along the way, gained some LPNs, and then people who failed the first time were readmitted. Of the original 63 there's probably about 45 of us.

ABSN program: 55 admitted, 53 graduated on-time. 1 graduated 1 term late after having to sit out part of a term following injuries from a bike crash, and one dropped nursing school before the end of the first term.

I will be half-way (one year) through my nursing program after this semester, so not sure how many will graduate...but I will say, we started with 43 students...we now have 24. I'm hoping the trend does not continue.

I am about to start my last semester for an ASN program; we started with about 62-64, lost a few 2nd and 3rd semester, gained I think 8 lpns and now have 63 going into the end.

Four semester ADN program here, approaching the end of it. We started with like 80 in my program. If you're not counting the LPNs and the students that had to repeat we probably have around 55-60 of the original left.

2 year ADN program, we started with 26 in my specific cohort. Lost 6 in first semester, 4 of them within the first month of class. They didn't realize how intense it would be. Lost 1 last semester (he failed pediatrics by literally one exam question, it was so sad) and 1 over the break to medical leave. We're down to 18 and I hope we don't lose anyone else. Having such a small class has really bonded us.

Our program has lost enough students that they're splitting up a cohort and shifting them to other cohorts since our classes were so small. It's a community college program but really rigorous. I don't think many were expecting it to be so tough.
