In my class most people pass. They require you to get 80 or above, anything less than that is failing. And yes, the teachers do offer tutoring time if needed, they are very helpful, they WANT you to pass. Clinical starts as 1 day/week, then 2, then at about 4 months in til the end it's 3 days/week. You don't get to pick where you go, but there are is variety- Health Central Park nursing home, Dr Phillips, Lucerne Hosp, Childrens first, Winnie Palmer, and I think a couple other places too.
