Aultman College students finished 2017 with another stellar passage rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).
In 2017, 90.2 percent of the first-time test takers from Aultman College passed the NCLEX, which is the nationwide exam for the licensing of nurses. These are students who graduated from the college’s Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program and took the test for the first time in 2017.
Aultman College’s rate was well above the Ohio passage rate of 84.96 percent and the national passage rate of 87.12 percent.
“The high NCLEX passage rate is the result of the hard work and dedication of the nursing students. Aultman College’s vision is to produce exceptional health care professionals who positively impact society. I am proud of the 2017 graduates,” said Dr. Jo Ann Donnenwirth, dean of nursing.
