    This link to the Texas Board of Nursing lists them through 2005:

    I think you are right to become as informed about the different nursing programs and their pass rates and reputations. I have always thought that passing rates are nice to know, but really are an indication more of the individual's efforts at passing. No matter how good the school is about preparing its students, the individual student must make the effort to study and pass the boards. JMO

    I think that the pass rates are a bit deceptive. The trend i'm starting to see is Nursing Schools requiring tough exit exams to "weed out" students that are not prepared for the NCLEX. My school did that and their pass rates jumped from 76% to 98%. Just something to keep in mind.
