Nursing Graduates Surpass National NCLEX Pass Rates

May 6, 2024

December 2023 graduates of the Wegmans School of Nursing continue to achieve high results on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX).

Two students in the Wegmans School of Nursing test their knowledge in the SIM Center.

On their first attempt taking the NCLEX, 98.3 percent of graduates successfully passed, well outperforming the national average (83.26 percent).

The NCLEX, which is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, ensures entry-level nurses meet set requirements and demonstrate specific safety and care activity competencies before entering the practice.

“Our NCLEX pass rate is a testament to our students’ hard work in the classroom and during their clinical experiences,” said Dr. Tricia Gatlin, dean of the Wegmans School of Nursing. “Our faculty work diligently to ensure that our nursing graduates are well prepared for rewarding careers and can provide exceptional patient-centered nursing care from the moment they enter the workforce.”
