Charleston, WV – One hundred percent of the May 2011 Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) graduates at the University of Charleston passed the NCLEX-RN licensure examination on their first attempt.
This is the second consecutive year the UC BSN graduating class has posted perfect pass rates on the first attempt of the NCLEX exam, while the ADN program improved from 85 percent last year.
“We are extremely proud of this year’s UC nursing graduates, as well as our outstanding faculty,” said UC President Edwin Welch. “This 100 percent performance is the result of much hard work and also reflects the success of UC’s ‘Learning Your Way’ curriculum that requires students to demonstrate that they have the knowledge and skills we want for every nursing student and for every graduate.”
