Huntington University is proud to announce its #1 ranking in the United States for first-time NCLEX-RN pass rates for the 2023-24 academic year, as released by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN).

“At Huntington University, our mission of Christ, Scholarship, and Service is the guiding principle in everything we do,” said Dr. Luke Fetters, vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty. “This remarkable achievement is a testament to our unwavering commitment to integrating faith and learning, fostering academic excellence, and instilling a spirit of service in our students.”

Out of the 2,218 nursing programs nationwide that received a ranking from the NCSBN, Huntington University secured the #1 placement, with a 100% first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate. The NCLEX-RN, the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (RN), is a test all entry-level nurses must take and pass before beginning their career. Additionally, Huntington’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) graduates have a 100% job placement rate.

“The past few years have shown how critical nurses are to our society, and we are honored to play a role in shaping the future of healthcare by preparing the next generation of nurses,” said Jodi Eckert, director of nursing at Huntington University.

With state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, manikins, a student-run nursing council and clinical experiences – Huntington’s BSN program provides students with a well-rounded education that prepares them for the NCLEX-RN exam and a successful career.

Recent graduate and winner of Miss Indiana 2023, Cydney Bridges, found the nursing faculty’s support critical to her success in the program.

“The Huntington University Department of Nursing was where I felt most supported on

campus. Each and every one of my professors helped me realize that I could achieve anything I set my mind to with hard work and determination,” said Bridges.
