Clatsop Community College is proud to announce that all 2011 Nursing Program graduates passed the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) on the first attempt.
This exam is sanctioned by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing and represents the final hurdle towards RN licensure. The exam measures competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as an entry level nurse and permits the Oregon State Board of Nursing to license those who pass as an RN.
This achievement also reflects the quality of the CCC Nursing program. The Oregon State Board of Nursing requires that programs result in an 85% first-time pass rate over two years. The CCC program regularly exceeds this standard.
“Many of our nursing students have spent 4 or 5 years steadily working towards the goal of becoming a nurse. Passing the NCLEX exam is the final step toward attaining the goal of RN licensure. The graduates are anxious to go to work, and once licensed, will begin working in a variety of settings in our local communities,” says Nursing Program Director Laurie Choate.
