The North Dakota State College of Science Registered Nursing (RN) program has received a No. 1 ranking out of 1,904 registered nursing programs in the United States for the spring 2014 graduating class. This ranking, which was reported by Mountain Measurements, Inc., is determined by the yearly National Council of Licensing Exam (NCLEX-RN) results.
Since the program’s first graduating class (spring 2006), a total of five graduating classes from the NDSCS RN program have achieved a 100 percent, first attempt pass rate.
“A special thank you goes out to our students, faculty, staff and especially our clinical affiliations –they are a critical part of the educational process and without their commitment and partnership, this continuous achievement would not be possible,” said Ruth Gladen, RN program coordinator and associate professor.
This marks the tenth year that NDSCS will offer a registered nursing program. Students in the program graduate with an Associate in Science in Nursing (A.S.N.) degree and are eligible for the National Council Licensure Exam for registered nurses (NCLEX-RN).
