  1. The percent of graduates who complete the program in the normal program length.
  2. The percent of graduates (who graduated between July 1, 2013 and June 30, 2014) who are placed in the related field of study by August 11th of the year following graduation.  (It may take 3-5 months for our graduates to actually get placed so this represents only the 3 months after graduation.)  This rate is calculated by taking the total number of graduates placed divided by the total number of graduates minus number of graduates unavailable for placement due to medical issues, active duty military service or continuing education.
  3. The percent of students who are retained in the program during the identified academic year.  This rate is calculated by the enrollment (as of June 30) plus graduates divided by beginning enrollment (as of July 1) plus new starts and readmits.
  4. The precentage of graduates who pass the licensure or certification exam on the first attempt by August 1st of the year following graduation. 

*RN-BSN Students are already licensed.
