Degrees in Bachelor of Science in Nursing were presented to 28 students this past May. As of Aug. 1, all 28 of those students passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for registered nurses. The first-time pass rate average for a class is 93 percent.
“The students and faculty have worked together to ensure the Berry College nursing students are prepared to provide safe, quality care,” Vanice Roberts, dean of the Berry College Division of Nursing, said. “The NCLEX scores and comments from our clinical partners validate that success.”
Of the newly graduates, all of them have been employed as registered nurses, with 13 currently employed at hospitals located in the metro Atlanta area; 10 employed by Floyd County in the health care system; three working in Tennessee; one employed in South Carolina; and one with a job in Alabama.
