Cresson, Pa. – Fall 2022 graduates of Mount Aloysius College’s BSN program achieved a 100 percent pass rate on their National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN Exam). The recent graduates are now all licensed registered nurses in several states across the US.

“I’m proud of our graduates. They worked extremely hard throughout this program,” said Heather Zonts, director of the nursing department and the BSN program chairperson at Mount Aloysius. “The NCLEX is designed to really test the necessary skills to make sure that a nurse is ready to step into a clinical or hospital setting. The fact that each of our fall BSN graduates passed is a reflection on the quality of our nursing faculty and the dedication of our students.”

NCLEX pass rates are commonly used to gauge the academic quality of nursing programs. By pairing the pass rate percentage with the number of nursing graduates taking the exam, prospective nursing students gain a more robust picture of a nursing program’s performance. Success on the NCLEX exam is the final stage of becoming a licensed registered nurse.
