Nearly all of Sacred Heart University’s class of 2018 nursing students passed the National Council Licensure Exam – Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN), the first time they took it resulting in a 99 percent first-time pass rate for the College of Nursing, the highest pass rate in the state. The NCLEX-RN is a standardized exam that candidates must pass in order to enter the profession of nursing. Passing the exam results in licensure.
