Henderson State nursing grads repeat 100 percent pass rate

ARKADELPHIA -- For the second year in a row, Henderson State University's graduating nursing class received 100 percent first-time pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination for new nurses.

The NCLEX exam is a standardized exam that each state board of nursing uses to determine whether a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice after completing an accredited nursing degree.

"This outstanding accomplishment is a direct result of the excellent faculty and staff we have on the nursing faculty team at Henderson State," said Shelley Austin, nursing department chair and assistant professor. "It also represents the hard work each of these two (2016 and 2017) cohorts demonstrated in the pursuit of their career."

In January, Henderson's nursing program was ranked as the best in Arkansas by RegisteredNursing.org.

Henderson offers several nursing degree programs: an online registered nurse to bachelor of science in nursing available for registered nurses with flexible practicum projects, a dual degree RN to BSN available at National Park College and in Hot Springs, an RN to BSN program with partial face-to-face coursework in Hot Springs and partial online classes, a traditional Bachelor of Science in Nursing available on campus in Arkadelphia and a traditional licensed practical nurse to BSN available on campus in Arkadelphia.
