Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing celebrates two record scores.

The Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing recently announced the 2017 Bachelor of Science in Nursing graduates achieved a 94.29 percent first-time NCLEX-RN exam pass rate and a program completion rate of 97.26 percent.  Both are institutional records.

Dr. Cheryl Giefer, Director of the Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing said "It's our highest pass rate since at least 2005". "It's an important accomplishment because it reflects the quality of our program, and because employers know our graduates are ready to work".

Normally, the NCLEX pass rate alone would be cause for celebration, but the School of Nursing also achieved another record in 2017. "Our 2017 completion rate was 97.26 percent," said Giefer.  "A completion rate that high is almost unheard of in the world of undergraduate nursing education.  Obtaining a completion rate this high is only possible because our School of Nursing faculty believe the field of nursing is a calling as much as it is a career.  They'll do what it takes to make sure our students succeed."

One of the keys to having such a high completion rate is the level of personalized attention given to students who might initially find the curriculum overwhelming.

The Irene Ransom Bradley School of Nursing faculty and staff would like to congratulate the 2017 Bachelor of Science Nursing graduates for their achievements.  OAGAAG
