Clayton State University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing program was ranked #1 in examination scores administered from October 2016 to March 2017.
This recognition comes as a result of 100% of the University's nursing graduates passing the NCLEX-RN exam upon taking it for the first time.
"We are very proud of our School of Nursing graduates and the contributions that they make to the community while in nursing school and when they work as BSN, RN nurses with our community agency partners," explains Dr. Charlotte Swint, Interim Director of the School of Nursing's Undergraduate Program.
The NCLEX-RN Program Report provides specific information about the examination performance of Clayton State nursing graduates taking the exam for the very first time.
Key takeaways from the University's NCLEX-RN exam program report are as follows:
- Clayton State ranked #1 among all programs across every jurisdiction
- Clayton State ranked highest when compared to test scores nationally
- Clayton State's BSN program is 1 of only 44 BSN programs in the nation that achieved a 100% passing rate on the exam
The NCLEX-RN exam, administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, is a standardized exam given to nursing graduates in order to determine whether or not they are qualified to practice entry-level nursing. Graduates are required to pass the exam before they are considered eligible for a nursing license.
"I cannot thank the nursing faculty enough for their hard work in the classroom, the sim lab, the clinical sites, and the community as they guide our students into becoming professional nurses,” states Dr. Swint.
Clayton State University congratulates the School of Nursing's faculty and students on their incredible hard work and success.
