Cloud County Community College Nursing Students Have High NCLEX Pass Rates

By Payton Tholstrup

Nursing students at Cloud County Community College recently took the NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) and received high passing rates. 90 percent of nursing students pass the Registered Nurse (RN) exam on their first attempt.

“I am very proud of the forty 2023 associate degree nursing graduates,” Stefanie Perret, Dean of Nursing and Allied Health, shared. “The students and faculty worked hard together, not only in preparation for this exam, but to safely enter an ever-changing health care industry.”

Once the Kansas Board of Nursing meets in March, the passing rate results will be official.

Nursing students at Cloud are also finding success in the workforce as well. Ninety-five percent of students end up accepting jobs as a registered nurse within just six months of graduation. Another 70 percent of nursing graduates end up staying in Cloud’s 12-county service area.

Cloud partners with 35 area hospitals, long term care facilities, non-profit agencies, and school districts. This gives students a well-rounded clinical experience.
