GBC Nurses Maintain 100% Pass Rate for 5 YearsGBC Nurses Maintain 100% graphic.

Great Basin College is pleased to announce its 2017 Associate of Applied Science in Nursing graduates have all passed the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX).

This year’s pass rates makes for 100 percent pass rates for five consecutive years.

The GBC Nursing program is the only nursing program in the state of Nevada to maintain a one hundred percent pass rate five years in a row.

The NCLEX-RN exam is used by all state boards of nursing across the U.S. to assess a student's competency, and is also required for licensure. Many state boards of nursing use the total overall NCLEX-RN pass rates to weigh a school's ability to provide a nursing education in the state.

The class of 2017 is also the first year nursing programs in Pahrump and Winnemucca graduated their first cohort of students. The GBC nursing program was made available in those locations beginning in the fall of 2015.

Dr. Amber Donnelli, Dean of Heath Science and Human Services said maintaining the 100 percent pass rate with the addition of Winnemucca and Pahrump is indicative of a solid curriculum.

“The faculty and students who put a lot of study time and clinical practice in over a two-year period. This data supports synchronize learning through distance education and would not be possible without all of our clinical partnerships in each community,” she said.
