The Chaminade University Nursing program ties for No. 1 in the nation, according to a new report by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.
The rank is based on the number of graduates passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX), a nationwide examination for the licensure of nurses. Students take the exam after graduating from nursing school in order to receive their license to practice.
In 2018, 100% of Chaminade students who took the NCLEX exam passed the exam. This is compared to the Hawaii average pass rate of 91% and the national average pass rate of 87%. There were 270 other schools nationwide that received a 100% pass rate, which puts the Chaminade program in the top 14% of nursing programs across the nation.
Congratulations to all of our Chaminade nurses!
