i hope i did not affend anyone....good luck to all!

Aug 4, '04Joined: Aug '04; Posts: 4Im a recent graduate of TWU Nurse Anesthesia program. And I can vouche, it was a toughie. One word that no other school shares. Reinke. I took the CCNA examination in 25 minutes, answered the minimum of 90 questions and scored a perfect score of 600. In fact, there were 99 in my graduating class and of the 99, 63 made perfect scores of 600. Pretty impressive if you askme. 100% of TWU graduates are CRNAs. No one have never been able to not pass boards. The national average on the CCNA exam is 89%. What is TWUs average on the CCNA exam. A whopping 98%. Its in the numbers on boards. Lata

i concur with your statement and add that ut-houston has had a 100% pass rate for at least the last 6 - 8 years. i agree, it is the end numbers that tell the whole story!
