Becker College School of Nursing Grads Score High on NCLEX
Published on: November 5, 2018
Becker College’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences is pleased to announce continued achievement in posting above-average pass rates for its Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduates. In 2018, the ASN students achieved a 96% pass rate, and the BSN students earned a 93% pass rate—well above the national average of 87%.
“This achievement is a direct result of the high level of quality and excellence in our nursing programs,” said Laurie Hillson, Ph.D., RN, Dean of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. “Our nursing faculty and staff are dedicated to ensuring graduates have the knowledge, skills, and abilities to deliver a high level of care throughout their nursing careers.”
NCLEX is a nationwide exam, administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, for the licensing of nurses in the United States, and is the last hurdle graduates face before becoming registered nurses.
Becker’s nursing programs have been recognized by the Colleges of Distinction for a strong record of preparing graduates for real-world success. The School offers accredited undergraduate programs in nursing and exercise science that emphasize hands-on training and mirror the demands of the dynamic healthcare industry.
