Nursing Students Achieve 100% Certification Pass Rate

Upon the completion of educational requirements, nursing students must successfully pass the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) to obtain their nursing license. Mid’s nursing students have consistently achieved high pass rates, but recent years were exceptional. In 2020, Mid’s Mt. Pleasant nursing students achieved the first 100% NCLEX pass rate for their cohort, and just one year later in 2021, Harrison nursing students also achieved this milestone.
