BRONXVILLE, N.Y. - Concordia College’s nursing students have received the second highest first-time pass rates on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) in New York State, and one of the highest in the nation.

The NCLEX exam is the standard test for the licensing of nurses in the United States. Concordia’s first-time pass rate of 97 percent is 12 percent higher than the average pass rate for baccalaureate graduates in New York State, and 10 percent higher than the national average.

“I could not be more proud,” said Susan Apold, dean of nursing at the Bronxvicollege. “In the three years since it was launched, the program is producing first-rate nurses who are not only extremely competent and well-prepared to serve, but caring and dedicated as well.”

Concordia offers two nursing programs , a traditional undergraduate bachelor of science program and a 15-month post-baccalaureate degree program for those who already hold a bachelor’s degree in another academic discipline.

"This is another remarkable achievement for our dynamic Nursing program,” said college President  Viji George, “I’m so proud of our dedicated students and faculty that have established a culture of excellence in such a short amount of time.”
