Gateway Nurses Achieve 98 Percent NCLEX Pass Rate

Gateway Community and Technical College today announced that its nursing students achieved a 98 percent pass rate on the first attempt on the 2012 registered nurse licensure (NCLEX) exam administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing.

The pass rate recently was released by the Kentucky Board of Nursing. Their success reflects the hard work put forth by our students and the quality of instruction provided by Gateways dedicated nursing faculty, said Teresa Mauk, Gateway nursing division chair.

Gateways nursing admissions cycle is scheduled for Fall 2013 for a class that will begin the nursing program in January 2014. Students interested in being admitted this fall can visit the Gateway website, http://gateway.kctcs.edu/en/Academics/Programs_of_Study/Nursing.aspx, for details.
