Tradition nursing graduates receive 100% passing rate

The August 2016 graduates of the pre-licensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at William Carey University’s Tradition campus received a 100 percent passing rate on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. 

 

“We are very proud of our students and faculty for this great accomplishment,” said Dr. Bobbie Loveless, associate dean and professor. The 13 students who graduated in August were the second class this year to receive the 100 percent pass rate; the May graduating class did so as well. 

 

Loveless said she attributes the success to an emphasis on high academic standards, a focus on educational competency via a concept-based curriculum, and a well-qualified faculty. 

 

“The Tradition nursing faculty on average have nearly 30 years of clinical nursing experience and 18 years of nursing education experience,” she said. “Seventy percent of the faculty are educationally prepared at the doctoral level and have earned terminal degrees in nursing.”
