Why Is the NCLEX Pass Rate Important?

The NCLEX-RN® is a national exam all nursing school graduates must take and pass to receive licensure and to practice as a registered nurse. Misericordia University BSN graduates’ 2023 first-time NCLEX pass rate of 90.65% shows our ABSN program is part of a nursing department focused on your success.
