Seminole State College nursing graduates ranked first in Central Florida

Seminole State earns top spot among other Central Florida nursing programs.

Graduates of Seminole State College of Florida's Nursing Program have another reason to celebrate. They are ranked first in Central Florida with a 99.4 percent pass rate on their licensure exams.

The Board of Nursing just released the results of the annual 2016 National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) pass rates for Florida and Seminole State College earned the top spot among other Central Florida programs including the University of Central Florida, Keiser University, Adventist University of Health Sciences, Valencia College, and Lake-Sumter State College.

NCLEX is the state-required exam that determines whether graduates are prepared for entry-level nursing practice. Seminole State College’s 99.4 percent pass rates were remarkably higher than the 2016 state average of 72.68 percent, and the national average of 84.56 percent.

 “The 2016 NCLEX pass rates for our nursing graduates are some of the highest in the state,’ says Dr. Cheryl Cicotti, dean for nursing. “These results speak to the hard work and dedication of the students and the nursing faculty/staff, and, highlight the efforts of the entire college toward promoting student success.” 

To meet the tremendous demand for nurses, Seminole State has expanded its nursing enrollment by more than 300 percent over the past decade. In fact, the Job Placement Rate (2014 FETPIP data) of Seminole State’s nursing graduates is at a monumental 98 percent. 

 
Just recently, Seminole State’s Nursing Program was ranked the No. 10 Best Nursing Program in Florida by RegisteredNursing.org.

Nursing programs were assessed on several factors which represent how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond. This included analyzing past and present NCLEX-RN “pass-rates” - weighted by year. For more information about the methodology visit www.registerednursing.org/rn-ranking-methodology.

As part of their studies and training, Seminole State College nursing students are equipped with state-of-the-art healthcare labs and high-tech patient simulators. This includes the “Victoria” birthing simulator that creates lifelike labor and delivery providing students with hands-on experience for birth scenarios.

The College’s Nursing Program, part of the Ann Wiggins Moore Center for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals, is based at the Altamonte Springs Campus. To learn more, visit the nursing website.
