The content of the care plans should be the same, I agree, but you will never find two clinical instructors who agree on quality of content. Go to your advisor and ask that they call a meeting with the clinical instructor to discuss continuity of content.

I agree with that one. If there is ONE standard to pass the NCLEX then there should be ONE standard to pass school.

Had this discussion with some friends about clincal (and I know that's kind of off topic). But at my school, you can have 3 different clinical instructors, and all 3 of them require different things in terms of paperwork completeness, concept maps. There's a standard of WHAT has to be on there. But there's teachers that only want 1 nursing diagnosis on their maps- but others want 2..........

Wow that would get super confusing!! I agree standards should be across the board. Originally when I started school our instructors said our standards were set by the state board...so I just assumed everyone had the same requirements in the state. (naive I know lol) I started talking to some other students that go to the same school system I do just in different areas of the state & they all have different standards....really odd!

I think they just changed it this year. Its an 80 or over. I have a friend who told me that if they get less than that on any exam, then their homework, etc doesnt count for their grade for that chapter. To me, that seems like it would sink you pretty fast.

That's how our school works too...I actually had to read that section in the handbook several times to make sure I was reading it right lol. I was going this can't be right!

My BSN program requires a 76% average for all exams. Any quizzes, papers, projects, etc... are only averaged in AFTER that 76% has been attained. It's hard, but necessary, I suppose. We can do it!

We need to get a 75 or better as a final grade.

Our tests count as 70% of that and pop quizzes count as 5% and the final counts as 25%

My friend failed our nursing 2 class with a 74.49 and she had to repeat the class over the summer
