Hello! I have a question about a friend of mine who is currently finished with the LVN program at Four-D college. I actually have four friends attending but two are at the other location in victorville, ca. Anywho my friend who just finished last month told me that she hasn't passed her final. I went to her graduation and her ceremony which was very nice but she threw me off because I thought she had passed! She tried taking it twice but failed so she said she gave up. I told her not to and that it is very important that she study hard and re-try. (Actually throughout her program she struggled very hard...she had to re-take a few tests). Well according to her she says that she does not "have" to take it again and that she isn't worried about it because all it will help her do is get into a bridge program if she wants to finish for an RN. I am very confused by this. Although she failed her final that doesn't mean she failed the program? And what about the NCLEX? will she still be eligible to take it although she failed her final? I am asking because I was thinking of going into the LVN program also. Any LVN students out there, can you please tell me if the final is important or not?
