Nursing Graduates Attain 100% Pass Rate

Posted: Feb 8, 2011

Truckee Meadows Community College continues to demonstrate academic excellence in its educational program outcomes. In 2010, 100 percent of the graduates in the associate degree of science in nursing program who took the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) exam achieved passing scores.

“TMCC is dedicated to quality instruction and outcomes for our programs to prepare students for jobs in our community,” said Dr. Maria C. Sheehan, TMCC president. Passing the NCLEX-RN exam is required for those seeking a license to practice as registered nurses (RNs). The test is developed by The National Council of State Boards of Nursing. “This excellent pass rate not only shows the rigor of our program in preparing our students to be RNs, but it also shows that our program provides a strong foundation for clinical nurses who later go on to serve this community,” said Karen Fontaine, director of the TMCC nursing program.
