Recent graduates from Northwest Technical College’s nursing programs have earned high pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses and licensed practical nurses.
Registered nurse graduates achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the first time they took the NCLEX test. Licensed practice nurse graduates also achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the first time they took the test.
“An enormous shout-out is due to our outstanding nursing faculty and the students they led to success,” Michele Brielmeier, dean of nursing and human services at NTC, said.
The NCLEX-RN exam is a national standardized test that every state regulatory board uses to determine if a candidate is ready to enter into professional nursing practice in the United States. Currently, all 2021 nursing graduates have completed their first attempt at the NCLEX-RN exam.
