Regis University’s Accelerated and CHOICE Nursing Programs Celebrate Nearly Perfect Licensure Test Pass Rates

June 02, 2014

99% of Regis University’s accelerated nursing program graduates have passed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses.

The exam helps ensure public protection in healthcare by measuring the competencies needed to perform safely and effectively as a newly licensed, entry-level nurse. It is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

The results are for first-time examinees and reflect pass rates primarily for December 2013 graduates. Regis’ Accelerated program had a 99% rate (85 tested; 84 passed) and its CHOICE program had a 100% pass rate (19 tested; 19 passed).  The national pass rate was 81%.    

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Accelerated program at Regis University is for individuals with a previous non-nursing bachelor’s degree looking for a fast path into nursing. The Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) CHOICE program is designed for people already working in health care who want to further their career in the field of nursing by taking courses in an evening/weekend class format while they continue working a day job.
