The Seminole State College of Florida nursing program has been ranked as the best in the nation by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.
The ranking is based on the passage rate for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) exam for the April – September 2016 time period.
Out of the 1,946 nursing programs nationwide, Seminole State ranked first. The rankings are based on the percentage of the graduates passing the NCLEX-RN examination compared to other programs with at least ten graduates who took the NCLEX-RN examination during the same time period. The college’s pass rate for this time period was an impressive 100 percent.
“We are incredibly proud of our nursing program students and their continuing successes,” says Dr. Cheryl Cicotti, associate dean for nursing. “Our students’ scores reflect on their hard work and dedication along with an excellent faculty, challenging curriculum and cutting edge technology.”
Recently, graduates of Seminole State College of Florida's Nursing Program ranked first in Central Florida with a 99.4 percent pass rate on their licensure exams.
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.
“These are incredible testaments to the excellence of our faculty, staff and students in the Nursing program and a point of pride for Seminole State,” says Seminole State President Dr. E. Ann McGee.
Seminole State College’s Nursing Program, part of the Ann Wiggins Moore Center for Nursing and Healthcare Professionals, is based at the Altamonte Springs Campus and features state-of-the-art healthcare labs and high-tech patient simulators. To learn more, go to seminolestate.edu/nursing.
