The May 2019 cohort of nursing graduates at Freed-Hardeman University have all passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) on their first attempt, according to Chris White, director of the FHU nursing program. The 47 students outperformed the national average of students taking the exam.
Twenty-six of the graduates attended FHU’s Dickson location and 21 were on the Henderson campus. They received the Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree in May, 2019.
White expressed his gratitude to the nursing faculty for their work in preparing students for this success. “The 100 percent pass rate is a testament to you and your commitment to our students and our program,” he said. Furthermore, White said, “I commend the 2019 graduates for their hard work throughout the program, as well as their diligence in preparing for the national licensure exam. We are truly proud of their achievements and welcome them wholeheartedly to the profession," he said.
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing, Inc. develops and administers the nurse licensure examination. The final step in the licensure process, it determines whether candidates are ready to enter the profession. The 2018 national pass rate on the NCLEX was 88.3 percent and the 2018 Tennessee pass rate was 92.2 percent.
