Bloomsburg University Nursing Program Ranked Ninth in State
BLOOMSBURG—The website Registered Nursing.org, a nursing advocacy organization, has ranked Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania’s nursing program ninth in the state.
Nursing programs were assessed on several factors that represent how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond. The group also analyzed past and present first time NCLEX-RN “pass-rates” — weighted by year. BU’s NCLEX-RN rate was 96.69.
The NCLEX-RN exam is used by all state boards of nursing across the United States to help assess a student’s competency and is required for licensure. Many state boards of nursing use the total overall NCLEX-RN pass rates for a school as one of the main ways to approve a school’s ability to provide a nursing education in the state. It is why the NCLEX-RN pass rates are one of the best ways to determine a nursing program’s student preparedness.
Bloomsburg University offers multiple quality nursing degree programs, including a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), Master of Science in Nursing (MSN), and the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP). Bloomsburg also offers RN to BSN and RN to BSN to MSN programs, which allow registered nurses to obtain the BSN and MSN online in a condensed timeframe.
Bloomsburg University is one of 14 universities in Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The university serves approximately 8,200 students, offering comprehensive programs of study in five distinct colleges: College of Education, Zeigler College of Business, College of Liberal Arts, College of Science and Technology, and new Honors College.
