Passage rates for schools

  1. 0
    I was wondering about school pass rates. I was not sure about which forum
    to put it in. Does a pass rate really indicate that a nursing school is a good school? What is a good pass rate for ADN and Bsn? Are they combined together since both take the same state board examination? I need some advice on this pass rate issue.

    Each state publishes pass rates for NCLEx exam.

    What you want to see is that a schools pass rate is close to state and national average over period of years; if below average one year that improvement noted following years.

    Here is info from the National Council of State Boards of Nursing:
