Mennonite College of Nursing at Illinois State University achieved a 96 percent NCLEX pass rate for the second consecutive year according to recently released data from the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation. NCLEX, or the National Council Licensure Examination, is the nationwide test for nurse licensure. The pass rates for RNs in the United States and in Illinois were both 82 percent for 2021.
“For the past five years, Mennonite College of Nursing has consistently achieved NCLEX pass rates of 95 or 96 percent, significantly outperforming the state and national rates,” Dean Judy Neubrander said. “This is a testament to the quality and dedication of our faculty and students and our commitment to preparing excellent nurses.”
