March 25 event will celebrate nurses' No. 1 performance on licensing exam

North Central Michigan College announced today that it will honor its 2020 nursing graduates with a virtual celebration marking their No. 1 performance on the NCLEX-RN® examination.

In January, the college announced that the National Council of State Boards of Nursing ranked North Central among the best nursing schools in the state — and in the top tier of RN programs nationwide — based on the percentage of the college’s Class of 2020 nurses who passed the NCLEX-RN® licensing examinations administered between April and September 2020.  The No. 1 ranking measured North Central’s graduates against all other RN graduates in Michigan, including those from four-year universities.

“We are thrilled to honor our Class of 2020 nurses, our instructors, and the donors who support our exceptional nursing and allied health programs,” said David Roland Finley, North Central’s president.  “This event will provide an opportunity for our campus community to celebrate their hard work and outstanding achievement.”
