The class of 2012 graduates of MNU’s Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX) for the second year in a row. According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), which administers the test, 91.66 percent of U.S. educated bachelor’s-prepared nursing graduates passed the test on their first attempt in 2012. MNU’s 2012 traditional BSN program graduates achieved a 93.55 percent first-time pass rate, also surpassing both state and national results.
The exam helps ensure public protection by measuring the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a newly licensed, entry-level nurse.
