Becker College ranked #1 by Nursing Schools Almanac
Published on: February 19, 2020
Becker College’s associate’s degree in nursing program has been ranked as the top program in Massachusetts by Nursing Schools Almanac.
To determine their rankings, the research team at Nursing Schools Almanac compiled a database of student performances on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Aspiring registered nurses in the United States must pass this examination before they can be licensed as a nurse. Nursing Schools Almanac calculated the first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate over the past decade of student performance, including calendar years 2009 through 2018.
Becker College’s NCLEX-RN pass rate among first-time test-takers was 95.8%, the highest in the state. The College’s associate’s degree in nursing program has an average of 51 students graduating annually.
“Apart from producing exceptional results on our NCLEX pass rates, what makes our nursing programs truly top-notch are the dedicated and experienced faculty and staff we have, the breadth of clinical placements we offer, and the hundreds of qualified students that work hard toward their degree each day in our classrooms, clinicals and labs,” said Robert Caron, interim dean for Becker College’s School of Nursing & Health Sciences. “With 100% job placement the last six years running, it’s clear that employers are hiring Becker nursing grads and they are pleased with the results.”
