The 2017 graduates of the associate of applied science in nursing degree program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello recently achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Council of Licensure Examination.

The NCLEX-RN is given by the Arkansas State Board of Nursing. UAM had the only ADN program out of 18 two-year programs in Arkansas to achieve a 100 percent pass rate, according to results released by the board recently.

“We are certainly pleased with these results and happy for our graduates,” Brandy Haley, head of the UAM School of Nursing, said in a news release. “It’s an indication of the quality of the students we have in our program and speaks to the quality of our faculty and their efforts to ensure that all of our graduates have a chance to be successful.”
