Kerrville, TX – Schreiner University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students recently achieved 100 percent pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) – marking the fifth consecutive time for the Nursing Program. The NCLEX examination presents the final challenge prospective caregivers must surpass before becoming a registered nurse.
The standardized test that every state regulatory board uses to determine if a prospective caregiver is ready to become licensed as a nurse focuses on four specific areas of practice. The first is safe effective care environment. This is about being able to maintain hygiene and control infections. The second is health promotion and maintenance. Then, there is psychosocial integrity. This looks at the ability to cope with the stresses of being a nurse and focuses on being able to deliver mental health care. The final and largest element of the NCLEX-RN exam is physiological integrity, which accounts for 43 percent to almost 70 percent of all questions. This covers the ability to deliver proper nursing care.
The philosophy, mission and objectives for the BSN program are in alignment with the long-standing traditions at Schreiner University as well as the nursing profession. The recent student NCLEX-RN pass rates validate the hard work of the Schreiner Nursing Department and its students.
