Emory nursing students earn 98 percent pass rate on national licensure exam

Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing graduates continue to excel on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) – the nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses. The 2019 year-to-date NCLEX first-time pass rate for Emory Nursing students is 98.04 percent.

After completing nursing school, every registered nurse (RN) in the United States must first pass the NCLEX to obtain a license. A final step in the journey toward practicing as a nurse, the exam tests the essential knowledge and skills that will be necessary for newly-licensed nurses to provide safe and effective care.
