North Dakota State College of Science nurses have demonstrated excellence in their field by earning perfect pass rates on this year's National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Recently, all 2012 NDSCS Associate in Science in Nursing (ASN-RN) graduates passed the national examination on their first attempt. This year's feat marks the third consecutive year in which the NDSCS ASN-RN program has had a 100 percent, first attempt pass rate.
"We attribute the nursing program's continued success to the dedicated, hard-working students and committed faculty and support staff," said Dr. John Richman, NDSCS president. "The program's clinical sites and preceptors have also played a vital role in the students' success."
2012 marks the eighth 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. For further information on the NDSCS nursing programs, visit www.ndscs.edu/nursing.
