The 2014 practical nursing graduates of the UAM College of Technology-Crossett (UAM-CTC) achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Council of Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN), according to Linda Rushing, vice chancellor of the Crossett campus.
The 100 percent pass rate in 2014 marked the 15th time in the last 19 years that practical nursing graduates of the Crossett campus have achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the NCLEX-PN.
The UAM-CTC practical nursing program was also recently recognized by the Arkansas State Board of Nursing for having a 100 percent pass rate for four of the past five years with the second highest NCLEX-PN pass rate in Arkansas.
Rushing commended Shela Upshaw, program chair and current president of the Arkansas State Board of Nursing, and Brandi Maxwell, clinical instructor, for the success of the program.
