30 Pitt-Bradford and Pitt-Titusville nursing graduates passed the licensing exam this year
One hundred percent of students who graduated from the Associate of Science in nursing program at Pitt-Bradford and Pitt-Titusville who took the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) in the last year passed on the first try.
“We’re very proud of our graduates’ efforts and their accomplishments and happy to know that graduates of both our programs, ASN and RN-to-BSN, are filling a critical nursing need within the communities that we serve,” said Jean Truman, associate professor of nursing and director of the nursing program.
Nationally, 88% of students with an ASN degree passed the NCLEX the first time they took it. Those who pass are eligible to become registered nurses.
Nursing graduates from both the Bradford and Titusville campuses are employed in regional health care, including UPMC hospitals, Penn Highlands hospitals, Meadville Medical Center, Titusville Area Hospital and more.
