Earlier this spring, all the 2011 NDSCS ASN-RN graduates passed the NCLEX exam on the first attempt. This is already their second consecutive year in which they had a 100 percent passing rate. The school attributes their success to the dedicated, hard working students and the committed faculty and support staff. Aside from that, the programs clinical sites and preceptors also play a vital role in the students continued success.
ASN-RN Program Coordinator, Ruth Gladen congratulated their students. “A 100 percent pass rate is a significant accomplishment,” she said.
“Most of our graduates are continuing their education and we wish them continued success in their professional careers.”
Last year, out of 1,686 other registered nursing programs in the US, the North Dakota State College ASN-RN program ranked no. 1 as reported by Mountain Measurements, Inc. The ranking is based on NCLEX-RN results.
This year 2011 marks the seventh year NDSCS will offer a registered nursing program. Students in the program graduate with an Associate in Science in Nursing degree and are eligible to take the NCLEX-RN exam after graduation.
