La Roche College announced that the 2015-2016 pass rate for the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program is 92.31 percent on the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Exam).
Department Chair of Nursing Terri Liberto, Ph.D., RN, said, “The nursing department at La Roche is thrilled with this report and so proud of our ASN graduates. Dedicated faculty, small classes, determined students and excellent clinical settings are responsible for this outstanding pass rate.”
The NCLEX is a nationwide examination for registered nurses. After graduating from nursing school, potential registered nurses take the NCLEX to receive their nursing license from the state in which they plan to practice nursing.
In addition to the ASN program, La Roche offers an online RN to BSN with an RN to MSN option, an online MSN program with specializations in Nursing Administration and Nursing Education, and a School Nurse certification program. La Roche has articulation agreements with several area community colleges and diploma programs for the RN to BSN degree completion program.
