Licensure Pass Rates

Nursing: Data for the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) will available after our first class graduates in 2018.

Education: 100% of our graduates must pass the PRAXIS prior to participating in clinical practice and earning their degree. This includes bachelor students and MAT students.

Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) administer the licensing exam for Master of Social Work degree recipients. The following should be information regarding the exams: a) It is voluntary for candidates to provide their school code therefore not all of our students will be identified; b) not all of the candidates earned a degree in social work; c) inferences and suppositions cannot be reliably made from pass rate data for groups of fewer than 100 candidates; d) exams are an indicator of entry-level competence only (not intended to be a comprehensive academic exam).

Masters: Typically taken within 90 days of or upon graduation from the masters.  Not all eligible graduates will sit for exam as licensure is not required for all positions.
