NTC nursing grads pass license test at 100 percent

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.
