Nell Hodgson Woodruff School of Nursing graduates continue to excel on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX)—the nationwide examination for the licensing of nurses. The 2019 year-to-date NCLEX first-time pass rate for Emory nursing students is 98 percent.

After completing nursing school, every registered nurse in the United States must first pass the NCLEX to obtain a license. A final step in the journey toward practicing as a nurse, the exam tests the essential knowledge and skills that will be necessary for newly licensed nurses to provide safe and effective care.
