"We are thrilled that our ABSN students have achieved a perfect score on the NCLEX on their first attempt," says Linda McCauley, PhD, RN, FAAN, dean of Emory's School of Nursing. "Having a 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX is a testament to our outstanding faculty and students. It also speaks volumes about the rigor of our program and our commitment to preparing nurse leaders."
