Trinity Nursing Students Score Second Perfect NCLEX-RN Pass Rate

Trinity’s nursing students continued their perfect pass rate on the NCLEX-RN. The College is celebrating its second year with a 100% pass rate and third straight year at least 12% above the national year-to-date average.
The exams are administered by NCSBN, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, through which boards of nursing act and counsel together to provide regulatory excellence for public health, safety, and welfare. The exam is taken after the student graduates from a bachelor’s degree-granting nursing program.
Tina Decker, head of Trinity’s Nursing Department, emphasized that the impressive showing was due in part to the relationship between the students and their teachers: “Students at Trinity Christian College are not just numbers,” Decker said. The faculty know each one of the students as an individual, and are committed to helping the student meet their potential.”
When asked how Trinity can keep their streak going, Decker said the Nursing Department would “continue promoting a community that emphasizes the importance of nursing as a vocation.”
Trinity’s nursing program is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
