Southern Union State Community College’s (SUSCC) most recent graduating class in the Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) program has achieved a 100 percent first-time pass rate on their board exams.

SUSCC’s ADN program develops nurses ready to enter the workforce in two years through its competitive program. 

For over 40 years, the ADN program at SUSCC has graduated nurses who have assumed multiple roles in healthcare facilities in the community, region and across the nation.  According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), the current average national pass rate for first-time test takers of the national licensure exam known as the NCLEX is 87.75%.

“It has been a few years since SUSCC has had a 100 percent first-time pass for the NCLEX-RN,” said Rhonda Davis, dean of health sciences at SUSCC. 

“We are committed to producing quality nurses to serve the east Alabama and west Georgia area and strive to offer quality instruction to our students. We are extremely proud of the 53 students in the fall 2023 ADN graduating cohort.”
