Nursing Students Excel on the National Licensure Exam

Mon, Sep 17th, 2012

Congratulations to students from the Hocking College School of Nursing, who achieved a 93.10 percent passing rate for first-time candidates on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) from April to June 2012 for Practical Nursing (PN) and a 96.77 percent passing rate for Registered Nursing (RN) program.

Across the United States, graduates with an associate's degree only achieved an 83.16 percent passing rate for PN, compared to Hocking's 93.10 percent passing rate. Nationally, graduates with an associate's degree had a 91.10 percent pass rate for RN, in contrast to Hocking's 96.77 percent passing rate. When taking the NCLEX, a graduate has up to six hours to complete the RN exam and five hours for the PN exam.
