BC Nursing Program has 100% pass rate on first try

The 2010 graduates of the Bainbridge College Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) Program have completed their national licensing exam and achieved an exceptional 100 percent pass rate on the first attempt at taking the exam. An 80 percent rate is required by Georgia Board of Nursing.

“I am delighted to share the wonderful news that all of the members of our 2009 ADN class have taken and passed the NCLEX, the licensing exam for nurses,” Bainbridge College President Tom Wilkerson said when he informed the college community Aug. 19. “This 100 percent pass rate is an outstanding achievement for our students and the faculty and staff who have worked so hard to reach this plateau.”

“We are so proud of these students and their achievement,” said Sheree Dickenson, acting ADN chair. “They worked really hard for the past two years and their diligence shows in this perfect pass rate. All of the ADN faculty and the Bainbridge College community congratulate each and every one of them. I extend my thanks to the excellent work of my fellow faculty members and to former ADN Director Faith Garrett who laid a firm foundation for excellence.”

The 17 graduates achieving this high degree of success are students from throughout the area, including Decatur, Dougherty, Grady, Miller, Seminole counties in Georgia and Wakulla County, FL.
