Nursing Program Success Rates and The Student Right To Know Act

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone knows if nursing programs are required to release their success rates / graduation rates due to the Student Right To Know Act or any other act/ law? I am looking at a very large, well known community college that offers multiple programs that have a reputation for being the best in my state, however I can not seem to find or get anyone at the school to give me actual graduation rate data. This is especially important because they have three large campuses, and each campus has one to three programs. Each program has different success rates according to student forums/ word of mouth. I'm wondering if it is normal to "hide" success rates, and not publish them some where?

Our State Board of Nursing has NCLEX pass rates. The university is required to pass their 2/4 year finish rates. I've also seen that information on the FASFA website.

^^^  Correct.  Your state Board of Nursing should have the NCLEX pass rates for accredited programs.  Check there.

As others have mentioned, pass rates should be able to be found but it sounds like you are asking about graduation rates specifically here. Typically, those are not required to be published and those that do publish may be coming up with their rate based on very different metrics.
