OKLAHOMA CITY— Oklahoma City University’s Kramer School of Nursing ranks in the top 10 percent of all schools in the nation that offer bachelor’s and graduate degrees in nursing, according to data recently released by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).
The ranking is based on nursing graduates’ success on the NCLEX-RN, the licensure exam for registered nurses. OCU’s first-attempt pass rate is 98 percent, beating the national average by 11 percentage points.
“This honor is a direct result of the excellent, diligent faculty we have at the Kramer School of Nursing,” said Marvel Williamson, dean of the nursing school. “It is a testament to our bright, hard-working students and to our supportive, careful staff.”
The Kramer School of Nursing will celebrate their achievement with a “Top Ten Day” March 4. This is the second year the school has earned a spot among the nation’s top 10 percent.
The NCSBN is the organization that all state boards of nursing belong to and it is the agency that convenes on matters affecting public safety through policy formation, legislation and licensure regulation.
