For the second year in a row, Henderson State University’s graduating nursing class received 100 percent first time pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for new nurses.
The NCLEX exam is a standardized exam that each state board of nursing uses to determine whether or not a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice after completing an accredited nursing degree.
“This outstanding accomplishment is a direct result of the excellent faculty and staff we have on the nursing faculty team at Henderson State,” said Dr. Shelley Austin, nursing department chair and assistant professor. “It also represents the hard work each of these two (2016 and 2017) cohorts demonstrated in the pursuit of their career.”
In January, Henderson’s nursing program was ranked as the best in Arkansas by RegisteredNursing.org.
Henderson offers several nursing degree programs:
– R.N to B.S.N. (online) available for registered nurses with flexible practicum projects
– Dual Degree R.N. to B.S.N. available at National Park College and in Hot Springs
– R.N. to B.S.N. program with partial face-to-face coursework in Hot Springs and partial online classes
– Bachelor of Science in Nursing (traditional) available on campus in Arkadelphia
– L.P.N. to B.S.N. (traditional) available on campus in Arkadelphia
