Nclex Pass rate for your school

Posted

Has 2 years experience.

The closest community college to me has a rate of about 75%..and the state average is 84%.

the second closest has a pass rate of 87%..they are about 60 miles from my house.

In your opinion is 75 way to low to be a good school?

what is your schools pass rate?

It might be a good school in the fact that they teach you what you need to know. They just might not teach you how to answer and think through the NCLEX questions.

My school pass rate was 95% last year but the new ones just came out up to Oct.2010 and it was only a 90%. So it just fluctuates at my school.

Does your state BON offer all the rates for the pass few years? Maybe you can see if it fluctuates any or if it just seems to stay in that area.

I looked at the previous years and its always lower than 80% ..usually right around 75%. compared to all the other schools in my state its the lowest.

Last year my school's pass rate was 86%, which is around the state average. The stats for this year aren't posted yet, but a lot of students in my class opted out of having their results reported to the school, so I don't know how reflective it will be.

At my school the 5 yr average is about 96% nclex-pn passing rate. That was part of the reason why I chose them.

A low pass rate doesn't mean it's a bad school necessarily. I personally wouldn't go lower than 80% when looking at schools. Maybe see if you can talk to a couple people who have attended the school and see what their opinions are of the program.

The school's I'm applying to have pass rates of 94.57%, 93.16%, and 92.54%.

This school is changing their entire curriculum.. all the nursing classes are being changed..renamed and extra credit hours added.... do you think this would make it worth going to??

Everyone in the area always says this isnt the best program to go too..that there are better ones.

the director was honest and said they've had problems with their students passing math and science questions...so they are trying to fix that. He said the new curriculum would be harder and starts Jan 2012.

Im accepted into a private LPN program right now..but its farther than the RN program..but the pass rate is around 88%..other schools im looking at have pass rates of 83-87% pass rates.

Our pass rate varies by quarter, but averages in the low to mid-90s.

One thing to consider when looking at pass rates is graduation rates. Some schools have low percentages of graduation rates, which may increase their NCLEX pass rates. If those least likely to pass the NCLEX do not graduate the program, then the pass rates will increase. Our school has about a 25%-30% attrition rate, so a significant number of students fail to complete the program for whatever reason

My school is always in the upper 90s (95%+) with their NCLEX pass rate (like another poster said, that is part of the reason I chose this school).

At my school the 2008 pass rate was 71% then 2009 the rate was 84%.

The DEMSN at my school is 100%. The BSN ranges from 90% to 98%, depending on the year.

Given that the overall first-time NCLEX pass rate is about 85%, anything much less than that seems to reflect either on the quality of the program or the selection process of the candidates.

and that is what concerns me the most..is that they are the only program in my state scoring this low year after year. It would be just my luck that the school 20 mins from me would have to be the worst pass rate... all the other programs are 50-90 miles away.

Here are a couple of things which might help set your mind at ease...

Do they admit by waiting list or lottery? If so then they probably end up with a higher proportion of weaker students than an admit-by-selection school which would tend to lower their pass rates.

Even a pass rate of only 70% means that only 3 out of 10 fail.

If you're a good student then you should do fine.

They admit based on a points system..gpa, TEAS score, ect. Almost everyone who applies gets in because its a small community so not that many to beat out. They take 30-35 students each semester.

They require a 3.0 GPA in your pre req courses of AP, micro,nutrition,psych,and math for meds, TEAS V they require a pass rate of 58% i think. so basically if you take the classes, maintain a B average and pass your TEAS you are in.

I attend a community college and our passing rate last year was 99% :)

The best info I could find was from 2006, with a pass rate of 90%.

At the community college I am applying to, they had a NCLEX pass rate of 98% last year! I really hope I get in....

100% pass rate. I believe they've had one year since the start of their nursing program, where it was 99%.
