I graduated from LC in summer 2010 and a bunch of people in our class passed NCLEX after only taking 75 questions - and some of them were not the top students in the program. I heard that the first group of ABSN students who were getting ready to graduate at Christmas 2010 had really high scores on the HESI exam - a lot of them scored over 1000 and the national pass mark is set at 850. So things are looking good for that nursing program.
According to The Town Talk (the local newspaper) last week, the first group of accelerated students who graduated in December 2010 passed the NCLEX with a 100% pass rate. There were 17 students who graduated and over half of them managed to pass the NCLEX after taking just 75 questions - the minimum number of questions (out of 265) to be able to take to pass the exam.
