The Nursing School With Highest NCLEX Pass Rate In Every State


                                                                 By Mariah Taylor 

Iowa, Kentucky, New Mexico and Wisconsin were the only states with nursing programs that had a perfect score.

The nursing news publication used NCLEX-RN exam pass rates for all registered nurse programs state by state. They analyzed the most recent years of data available up to five years and averaged the schools' pass rates weighted by the recency of the exam. Each school was graded on a 100-point scale.

Three states — Alaska, Rhode Island and Vermont — did not have enough data to do a school ranking.
