Nursing Graduates Boast 100 Percent Pass Rate on NCLEX Exam


BSN graduates, January 2019

Twenty-five WP nursing students who graduated in January 2019 earned a 100 percent pass rate on the 2019 National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX), exceeding the 2019 year-to-date national average of 89.5 percent.

"Our students’ perfect NCLEXpass rates are a testament to the high quality of our program and faculty,” says Venkat Sharma, dean of the University’s College of Science and Health. “Each nursing faculty member is involved in ensuring that they incorporate strategies for NCLEX success, from the first course of the upper division curriculum to the critical final semester."

The NCLEX is a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses within the United States and Canada. After graduation from a school of nursing, students must pass the exam to acquire a license as a registered nurse.
