Why Students Drop Out of Nursing School


For the 2020-2021 school year, the dropout rate for nursing schools in California hovered near 10%. Some schools reported rates as high as 39% and others reported a 0% attrition rate. These rates are an estimate of your potential to graduate if you are admitted to the program.

The dropout rate is influenced by several factors, most of which you can control when you know how to prepare. 

The common reasons nurses drop out of nursing school include:

  • poor time management skills
  • overwhelming stress
  • bad study habits
  • working more than part-time
  • lack of support with family responsibilities
  • difficulty taking the new NCLEX-style questions on exams

Ask what services are available to help you improve in these areas:

  • Programs designed  for new students to help one improve study habits + test taking
  • Tutoring services
  • Peer support
  • Stress reduction and self help guides
  • Faculty advisor availability
  • Child care center
  • Counseling services

Nursing program accreditation by ACEN or CCNE is important as onsite  evaluation of program has occurred indicating to the general public that the nursing program was assessed and identified as having effective educational practices meeting or working to meet nursing standards.

Best wishes in choosing a great program to help you succeed in a nursing career.
