FSCC Nursing Program Ranked #2

July 19, 2019

Fort Scott, Ks.—Fort Scott Community College’s nursing program was recently evaluated by NursingExplorer.org. The ranking was based on NCLEX pass rates and net-price as its criterion. NursingExplorer.org gathered data from over 3,000 nursing schools and ranked 1,721 schools across 45 states.


“The formula also gives a 70% weight to NCLEX pass rate and 30% weight to net-price. The result of the calculation is a score between 1 and 100 that reflects the quality of education offered at the school and affordability. If a school has a high NCLEX pass rate and low tuition (or provides a sizeable financial aid), then its ranks will be higher”, says Kim Carlson of NursingExplorer.org.


After the full evaluation of data, FSCC RN program came in at #2 out of the 36 programs in Kansas!


“This is a true testament to our program, faculty, staff, administration, and most importantly our students. While this study only shows one year, our program has consistently provided exceptional education that is affordable. We are also able to provide our students and community with competent, work-ready graduates.  We are very thankful to be recognized as the second best nursing program in state of Kansas”, says Director of Nursing at FSCC, Jordan Howard.
