Nursing Pass Rate Exceeds State Average

In 2016, graduates from Truman’s Department of Nursing exceeded the state average pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) for registered nurses.
According to the NCLEX-RN pass rates recently released by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, 97.73 percent of Truman nursing graduates passed on their first attempt. By comparison, the overall Missouri rate was 85.50 percent.
Truman offers both the traditional four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree, as well as an Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. For the ABSN, students who already have a bachelor’s degree in another subject can earn a nursing degree in 15 months.
The Truman Department of Nursing has the seal of approval from the Missouri State Board of Nursing and is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
