KSN Ranks in the Top Ten Percent Again
The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) reports that in 2008 Kramer School of Nursing (KSN) ranked in the top 10% of all schools in the USA that offer bachelor’s and higher degrees in nursing. NCSBN is the organization to which all states’ boards of nursing belong and convene on matters affecting public safety through policy formation, legislation, and licensure regulation. NCSBN is also the organization that develops and administers the NCLEX-RN (the examination required for Registered Nurse licensure anywhere in the USA and its territories). The top 10% ranking is based on KSN's graduates’ success passing the NCLEX-RN. In 2008, KSN had only one graduate fail the exam on the first attempt, yielding an overall pass rate of 98%. The national pass rate average for 2008 was 87%. This indicator of excellence is the foremost outcome measure used by nursing schools, licensure boards, and employers of nurses to validate program quality. To KSN’s excellent, diligent faculty, to its bright, hard-working students, and to its supportive, effective staff, congratulations on this outstanding achievement!! In recognition of this honor, Dean Marvel Williamson declared March 4, 2009, as “Top Ten Day” at Kramer School of Nursing.
