Bainbridge State College reported Monday that all its 2017 Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) graduates passed the required NCLEX-RN licensure exam.
All fifteen of the May 2017 graduates passed the licensure exam on their first attempt. Bainbridge State College holds a three-year average pass rate of 96% percent.
Nursing Professor Jeffrey Ross said this far exceeds the state and national averages.
"This achievement would not be possible without the ADN program's dedicated faculty and staff, cooperation from our local hospitals and health care facilities who provide our students' with quality, real-life clinical experiences and the determination and dedication of our students," said Ross.
Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College (ABAC) and Bainbridge State College will soon consolidate.
"We have already begun this very arduous process and are collaborating with the ABAC nursing faculty in creating what we hope will be one of the best and largest nursing programs in the state," Ross said.
