The SCCC/ATS Nursing program has just received official notification from the Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) of the licensure results for graduates taking the exam for the first time between Jan 1 through December 31 of 2011 Nursing graduates.

For the seventh year in a row, the SCCC/ATS Practical Nursing program pass rate for first time candidates taking the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurse (NCLEX-PN) was 100 percent. The Kansas average pass rate was 93.98 percent and the national average pass rate was 84.83 percent. The SCCC/ATS Practical Nursing program had its first graduating class in 1979 and there have been 19 graduating classes with 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX-PN exam: 1981, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011.
