Nursing grads are top in FCS on licensing exams

Nursing students train in one of the simulation labs at the Altamonte Springs Campus.

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.

NCLEX is the state-required exam that determines whether graduates are prepared for entry-level nursing practice.

In addition, Seminole State’s Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) graduates well exceeded state and national averages with a first-time pass rate of 96.5 percent. The state average is 76.1 percent, and national is 85.5 percent.

Seminole State’s nursing programs are based at the Altamonte Springs Campus, which features 16 state-of-the-art healthcare labs and high-tech patient simulators. For more information, please visit the Nursing website.
