National Nursing Licensure Pass Rate Tops 98 Percent

National Nursing Licensure Pass Rate Tops 98 Percent

The University of Scranton Nursing Program’s pass rate for the National Council Licensure Examination for first-time test takers for graduates with a bachelor’s degree for 2019 was 98.72 percent. The 2019 average national pass rate for first-time test takers with a baccalaureate degree is 91.22 percent, according to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing website. This is the most recent annual data available.

The National Council Licensure Examination is a nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States, Canada and Australia.

“The high pass-rate equates to the success of the program for its educational methods, delivery and student preparation for the licensure exam,” said Kimberly Subasic, Ph.D., associate professor and chair of the Nursing Department.

According to Dr. Subasic, the University’s pass rate is usually above both state and national averages. She credits its students, curriculum and faculty for its continued strong pass rates, as well as “the state-of-the-art campus laboratory simulation practice and extensive clinical experience provided to our students.”

The University's nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) and has full approval of the Pennsylvania State Board of Nursing.

In November, the Department of Nursing was among two programs in the country presented with a 2020 Assessment and Impact Award for Nursing Education. The award recognizes colleges that have successfully used data to analyze and make changes to better their undergraduate nursing programs. It is presented annually by Skyfactor Benchworks, a Macmillan Learning Company, which produces the most widely used assessments in nursing education.
