IV-C. Licensure pass rates demonstrate program effectiveness.
Program Response:

The BSN program NCLEX-RN® first-time pass rate for each pre-licensure track is consistently 80% or higher. Table IV.C.1 lists pass rate data by pre-licensure track for 2019 and 2020. The overall NCLEX-RN pass rate for the BSN program for 2019 is 91.49% (this percentage is based on program completers from the fall 2018 and spring 2019 and fall 2019 and spring 2020 academic years). The BSN program has established a NCLEX-RN pass rate benchmark of 80% or higher for the most recent calendar year. This benchmark has been met for the past four years and exceeds the 80% benchmark (VRR IV.C.1 NCLEX-RN Rolling Average) for first-time NCLEX-RN candidates.

Program Response:

Employment rates of BSN and MSN program completers demonstrate achievement of the ACONHP employment rate benchmark of 70%. Table IV.E.1 provides employment rate data for each program from fall 2017 to spring 2021. These data are collected separately for each program within 12 months of program completion. The Program Completion Survey is completed by students upon completion of their program of

study (VRR IV.A.4 BSN & MSN-PMC Program Completion Survey). Students fulfill roles throughout the healthcare delivery system. Additionally, these data are collected via personal contact within 12 months from program completion.
