- SAU’s BSN program ranked No. 3 in Arkansas for NCLEX pass rate
Southern Arkansas University is excited to announce that graduates of its Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program (pre-licensure track) finished the 2018-2019 academic year ranked third in the state of Arkansas for its first-time NCLEX pass rate, as reported by the State Board of Nursing.
To obtain licensure in Arkansas, graduates of the program are required to take the National Council for Licensure Exam-RN (NCLEX-RN) which ensures candidates are well prepared for entry-level practice. For the 2019 year, which runs from July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2019, SAU nursing graduates achieved a 96.9 percent pass rate on their first attempt, the highest percentage in the history of the BSN program, according to Dr. Karen Landry, Department Chair. In addition, the spring 2019 class has thus far recorded a 100-percent pass rate. (more…)
