Clatsop Community College is proud to report that all 2015 Nursing Program graduates passed the National Council Licensing Exam (NCLEX) on their first attempt. This exam is sanctioned by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing and represents the final step 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 Registered Nurses. CCC congratulates each of these new Registered Nurses.
This accomplishment reflects the unparalleled quality of the CCC Nursing Program. The Oregon State Board of Nursing requires that programs produce an 85% first-time pass rate over two years for graduates. The CCC program regularly exceeds this standard, and has recorded a 100% first-time pass rate in six of the past seven years.
“We are really proud of our graduates. The student nurses and Nursing Faculty work extremely hard and these results demonstrate their dedication to excellence. We are also very grateful for the tremendous learning opportunities our local clinical affiliates provide our students throughout their program. This accomplishment is really a combined effort!” says Allison Sansom, CCC Director of Nursing and Allied Health.
For information about enrolling in Clatsop Community College’s Nursing program, the public is invited to an information session on Thursday, September 10, 2015 from 5:00 – 6:30 p.m. on the CCC main campus, Columbia Hall Room 219, 1651 Lexington Avenue, Astoria.
