Nursing Grads Excel in Latest NCLEX
Passing exams required to obtain nursing license
Nursing graduates taking the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in 2021 continued to perform well. Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) students had a pass rate of 95%, well above the national pass rate of 83%.
The NCLEX is a standardized test that determines a graduate’s readiness to begin practice as a nurse. A passing grade is required for graduates to obtain a license to practice nursing. In 2021, 74 out of 78 FVTC graduates taking the test for the first time received a passing score.
Practical Nursing graduates who took the NCLEX also performed well with a 90% pass rate during this most recent testing period. Congratulations to nursing graduates for this achievement.
