Tennessee Tech College Of Nursing Earns 97 Percent Passing Rate For Licensure Exam

Tennessee Tech’s nursing students earned one of the highest passing rates in the state for the nursing licensure exam.

Students averaged a 97 percent pass rate. The nationwide NCLEX pass rate for first-time takers was 80 percent in 2022 while Tennessee earned an average pass rate of 86 percent.

Dean Kim Hanna said Tech has long made passing the exam a priority of its nursing program, even setting aside resources for a nursing student emergency fund for those who may need added support to remain in the program and pass their exam.
