Clatsop Community College is proud to announce that all 2012 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, and has recorded a 100% first-time pass rate in four of the past five years.
“The nursing faculty and students work incredibly hard towards the goal of graduation and licensure. We’re very proud of our graduates. We’re all celebrating their success,” notes Nursing Program Director Laurie Choate.
