Nursing Students Earn 100 Percent Pass Rate on Licensing Exam

News Story: October 23, 2012

Sacred Heart University’s recent nursing graduates have achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) licensing exam. According to a recent report from the NCSBN, 48 SHU graduates took the exam, and all of them passed. This year’s national average pass rate on the exam was 93.5 percent.

“This is the result of hard work on the part of the nursing faculty and the students. It exemplifies our commitment to quality education and engaged learning,” said Anne Barker, chair of the Nursing program.

The NCSBN is a not-for-profit organization whose purpose is to provide an organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting the public health, safety and welfare, including the development of licensing examinations in nursing.
