The nursing program at Mohave Community College has ranked among the best in Arizona. Out of 28 nursing programs analyzed by RegisteredNursing.org, the program at MCC was ranked number four. MCC President Dr. Michael Kearns said, “This is a great recognition of the hard work our nursing faculty, staff and students are doing at all of our campuses.”
The rankings were based on the pass rate of students on the NCLEX-RN exam. That is the exam used across the US to determine a nursing student’s skills and to grant licensure. They averaged the pass rates of up to five of the most recent years of available data. MCC ranked 94.2 overall but boast a 97% pass rate in 2017 alone.
The MCC nursing program director June Weiss said, “We are honored to be recognized for the excellent NCLEX pass rates. The staff and faculty focus on the achievement of student learning and success and strive to keep the student at the center of all they do.”
The nursing program is the cornerstone of the North Mohave Campus and attracts local and out of town students alike. According to MCC, “Beginning in Fall 2018 the nursing program will be offered in the evening and weekends, which is a schedule that allows students more flexibility to maintain full-time jobs while working on their career transition.”
