School of Nursing

National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)-RN Passing Rates. NCLEX is an examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States. The School of Nursing examines the pass rate on the NCLEX annually as part of the School's Systematic Evaluation Plan. The Evaluation Plan specifies an acceptable pass rate of at least 90%; in instances when the pass rate has fallen below this criterion, the Nursing School has established task forces to examine and make recommendations regarding pertinent factors, such as admission criteria, clinical site placement, instructional strategies, and capstone experiences.
