State Board Examination

To be registered (licensed) to practice professional nursing, graduates of approved programs must pass an examination, administered under the authority of the State Board of Nursing. The computer-assisted test, known as the NCLEX, may be scheduled soon after graduation; examinations are given in all jurisdictions throughout the United States. Information on the exam is available from the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX). For Wisconsin professional nursing school NCLEX pass rates, visit the Department of Safety and Professional Services website.

Coming back to campus

Each fall alumni of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences gather for fun and fellowship at the annual Nursing Alumni Homecoming Walk. The day includes breakfast, door prizes and a group walk before the Homecoming parade.
