Nursing receives award for above average test scores
Pratt Community College Nursing has received a Certificate of Excellence in recognition of the Practical Nursing (PN) program's pass rate that was above the national average for first time NCLEX-PN' takers for the testing period Jan. 1, 2012 through Dec. 31, 2012.
During that same time period, PCC PN students also exceeded the state average, ranking seventh out of 25 Kansas PN Programs with first time NCLEX-PN testers pass rate of 98.15 percent.
PCC's five year average NCLEX-PN first time pass rate is 98.15 percent, as well.
PN students responsible for this were from the Winfield and Pratt on-campus cohorts, as well as the state's first PN Hybrid cohort.
"PCC has a long time history of receiving this award," says Dean of Nursing, Dr. Gail Withers, "PCC gives students a strong foundation to build upon as they continue their education."
PCC nursing offers many options for those earning LPN licenses to complete an associate degree in nursing (RN), including online, as well Pratt, Winfield and Wichita on-campus programs. Both the PCC PN and ADN programs are approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and additionally, the ADN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission.
