Graduates of the Nursing Programs at Seminole State College of Florida once again exceeded state and national averages on their licensure exams, according to results released in October by the Florida Board of Nursing.
The 121 Seminole State 2013 Registered Nursing (RN) graduates achieved a 95.87 percent first-time pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination – the highest among the 28 Florida College System institutions. The state average is 79.29 percent, and the national average is 84.28 percent.
“Our students’ scores reflect the excellence of our faculty and curriculum in preparing today’s nurses,” says Cheryl Cicotti, associate dean for nursing.
