2016 Nursing Graduates Earn 100 Percent Pass Rate on Licensure Exam

September 1, 2016

One hundred percent of the May 2016 Wegmans School of Nursing graduates who took the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) this spring passed the licensure test.

The NCLEX ensures entry-level nurses meet set requirements and demonstrate specific safety and care activity competencies before entering the practice. Seventy-five members of the School’s most recent graduates sat for the exam, which is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

Of the 70 December 2015 graduates who also took the exam, 97.17 percent passed, contributing to an overall 98.62 percent pass rate.

“The continued success of our students on the National Licensure Exam is the result of the strength our faculty along with the quality of our curriculum and resources,” said Dr. Dianne Cooney Miner, dean of the School. “Our program continues to achieve distinction at the state and national level.”
