Student Achievement for all programs as reported to Accrediting Bureau of Health Education Schools (ABHES) 

For the BSN Program: The pass rate for the NCLEX exam for the Nursing Program (required by the Virginia Board of Nursing) for the calendar year 2019 was 93%.

Key:

  1. The percent of graduates (who graduated between July 1, 2019 and June 30, 2020) who are placed in the related field of study by November 1st of the year following graduation. This rate is calculated by taking the total number of graduates placed divided by the total number of graduates minus the number of graduates unavailable for placement due to medical issues, active duty military service, or continuing education.
  2. 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.

(*) No graduates during this academic year.
