Did you pass first try?

  1. 0
    Heard from another nurse that 1 in 4 students will fail the first attempt at the nclex.... this goes for PN and RN....
    When I look at the quarterly pass rates for the BON this doesn't seems to be correct.
    So... I'm Curious....

    Are the pass rates better or worse on the BON?

    Here in Arizona, the pass rates are better... its more like 1 in 10 will fail the first attempt.
    What about your state?

    Did the pass rates at anyone else's program went down this year? Last year only two seniors failed. This year, there are nine people failed already. There are others who still hasn't taken it yet.

    I guess it's because of the raise in the passing standard as of April 2013?

    85 percent of US-educated candidates pass NCLEX on the first attempt, so this equates to roughly four out of five people who pass on the first try.

    Here's the silver lining: the vast majority of test takers pass NCLEX on the first attempt. However, it's the people who fail that capture our attention the most.

    The passing standard for NCLEX is raised every three years or so. I took NCLEX-RN in May 2010 and the passing standard had been raised in April 2010.

    This is nothing new. Since nursing is constantly changing, NCLEX must change with it.
