Nursing Grads Rank Best in the Nation

Nov 17, 2020

Once again, Fox Valley Technical College’s Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) graduates ranked #1 in the nation for pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).

Passing the exam is required for graduates to obtain a license to practice nursing. During the most recent reporting period of April-September 2020, 25 out of 25 FVTC test-takers passed the exam. With a 100% pass rate, the college ranked #1 out of 2,010 two-year and four-year programs. For perspective, the nationwide pass rate within ADN programs was 83%.

Practical Nursing graduates who also took the NCLEX performed well during this most recent testing period.

Congratulations nursing graduates on this fantastic achievement!
