GMercyU NCLEX Rates Surpass State and National Average

Earlier this fall, GMercyU received its highest-ever NCLEX exam first-time pass rate in BSN program history. The 91.39% pass rate surpasses both the state average of 90.70% and the national average of 86.73%.

The NCLEX exam is the nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses in the United States.

“At a time when Mercy nurses are needed more than ever, I am so incredibly proud of our students who will make a real and lasting difference in the communities where they live and work,” said Jane H. Tang, PhD, RN, NE-BC, Dean of GMercyU’s Frances M. Maguire School of Nursing & Health Professions.

GMercyU has been a leader in preparing highly skilled, compassionate nurses for over 60 years. To continue to meet the urgent need for nursing and other healthcare professionals, GMercyU will begin construction on the new Frances M. Maguire Healthcare Innovation Center this spring. This new 63,000-square-foot space will feature state-of-the-market technology and spaces to support interprofessional learning, a best practice in healthcare. Here, nursing students will work alongside students from other majors, including Social Work, Psychology, Computer Information Science, Respiratory Care, and more.
