Recent graduates from Northwest Technical College’s nursing programs earned 100 percent on their National Council Licensure Examinations for both registered nurses and licensed practical nurses.
According to a release, graduates from the RN program that took the test between October and December of 2021 got 100 percent on their first attempt at the NCLEX test. LPN graduates also achieved a 100 percent pass rate on their first test.
“An enormous shout-out is due to our outstanding nursing faculty and the students they led to success,” said Michelle Brielmeier, the dean of nursing and human services at NTC.
The NCLEX-RN exam is a national standardized test that every state regulatory board uses to determine if a candidate is ready to enter into professional nursing practice in the United States.
