The NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) is the licensing exam nursing graduates must take to practice as a registered nurse.
Nursing faculty member, Dr. Shelley-Rae Pehler, stated, "This is the third year in a row that our graduates have maintained the 95% pass rate."
To compare with other programs:
- UW-EC Nursing Program ranks 4th of 39 nursing programs in the state (this includes ADN as well as BSN programs) where the state pass rate was 86%.
- UW-EC Nursing Program ranks of 60th of 756 BSN programs across the nation (where the pass rate for this group was 79%).
