March 5, 2015

Fort Scott, Kansas – The Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) has released testing results for the 2014 calendar year on the NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses). The Fort Scott Community College Nursing Program is please to announce a 94.59% pass rate for its graduates.


FSCC’s nursing department continues to be above national averages for its graduates’ test results. The national average was 82.86%.


Bill Rhoads, FSCC’s Director of Nursing, said of the ongoing success, “The nursing program has sought to improve student outcomes.”


“We know that first-time pass rates (on the NCLEX) are important when marketing our program to potential students. They are also one of the indicators of a program’s quality for State Board of Nursing approval and ACEN accreditation.”


Rhoads continued, “Potential employers of graduates will also consider a program’s pass rate. This is especially true in Missouri where a Graduate Nurse may function as an RN until examination results are known.”


The FSCC nursing program is approved by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and nationally accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
