I'm in the LPN program that started out with 24 students in the class. Well now we are in Med/Surg 1 and it looks like only 10 or so students will be passing on to Med/Surg 2.
Sounds like a bad program.
I'm at the point I just want to make it to June.
Hang in there and make sure YOU are one of the ten that make it!! June will be here before you know it!!
I can relate, same thing happens at my school, only they usually last until the very last clinical. the teacher for that is really tough. There are several (including me) who will not graduate in May '04 as we were supposed to. I actually think they (the school) expects this to happen. Please don't panic, and don't give up!
Wow, that's quite a "weeding out!". Be proud of yourself for your accomplishiments, though, and keep up the good work! :balloons:
in my rn class, we started off with 61 students. at graduation 2 years later, we only had 14 from our original class. we did have lpns that joined us half the way through. we also picked up some students that failed a class and had to retake it. our graduating class was 34 students. it is sad!
So do they let u take the class over or do u have to start the whole program over :stone
I seriously think those programs are screwy. Either they are accepting applicants who obviously can't cut it or they are not teaching the material well enough for students to pass. There is no way a program should lose more than 50% of its students unless the instructors are completely incompetent.
I think that happens in many programs. My class (ADN) started with 30 ended with 21. People leave for a many reasons such as pregnancy, health problems themselves, family, and unfortunately some just don't make it.
