College's Practical Nursing program achieves NCLEX-PN (R) year-to-date success rate of 96.30% for 2018

Practical Nursing Program at MSC SoutheastWhen it comes to nursing education programs, success is measured by the percent of students who pass their board exams on the first try. High pass rates indicate that students will receive a quality education and be well-prepared to enter the workforce.

Minnesota State College Southeast Dean of Health Jennifer Eccles is pleased to announce that the college's Practical Nursing  program achieved a NCLEX-PN (R) first time success rate of 100% for the second quarter of 2018. Out of 15 students who sat for the exam, 15 passed on their first attempt. The program's 2018 year-to-date success rate is 96.30%.

"Our practical nursing graduates are a real credit to MSC Southeast," reports Jennifer Eccles. "I also commend the faculty and staff who have played such a large role in educating and supporting them. They put their heart into this work, and it shows."

First time pass rates have been steadily rising in the past year; both the second quarter and year-to-date rates are well above state and national averages for similar programs. 

Fall 2018 Start in Red Wing may still be still possible

The Practical Nursing program is already filled on the Winona campus for Fall 2018, but it may still be possible for qualified students to enroll in Practical Nursing at the college's Red Wing campus. Prospective nursing students are encouraged to complete the application process immediately. Contact Admission Representative Laura Thomas at 651-385-6330 or Laura.Thomas@southeastmn.edu for assistance.

The Practical Nursing major is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to provide direct nursing care to patients in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, home and community-based settings within the scope of practice of a Practical Nurse. This challenging 2-semester program requires students to demonstrate competence in classroom theory, laboratory experiences, simulated events, and supervised clinical rotations. 

MSC Southeast's Practical Nursing program is accredited by ACEN (Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing) and is in good standing with the Minnesota Board of Nursing.
