Great Basin College is pleased to announce this year’s nursing graduates have all passed the NCLEX-RN exam (National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses).
The GBC Nursing program is the only nursing program in the state of Nevada to maintain a one hundred percent pass rate three years in a row.
Students who receive their Associate of Applied Science in Nursing degree take the test upon graduation in-order to become a Licensed Registered nurses in the state.
“Having a pass rate consecutively over the past three years indicates that not only is the program of the highest quality, but students who graduate from the GBC’s nursing program are making a national bench mark,” said GBC Dean of Health and Human Services, Dr. Amber Donnelli.
With the financial assistance from the TAACCCT Grant, awarded in October 2014, GBC is extending the AAS nursing program to Winnemucca and Pahrump starting fall 2015.
Nursing students will receive all of their education via interactive video and will complete skills/simulation and clinical in those communities. With the added communities, the program will go from 20 to 32 students accepted each year.
A majority of GBC AAS Nursing graduates go on to the GBC Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program.
The BSN program was established in 2004 and has graduated more than 70 nurses. The bachelor program is offered online, designed for working nurses to advance in their fields. The program has a current enrollment of 58 students from across Nevada and nearby states.
