Rochester Community and Technical College is proud to announce its Practical Nursing program is ranked #1 in Minnesota by NursingProcess.org.
Each Practical Nursing program is evaluated on three factors: the average NCLEX-PN exam first-time pass rates of the most recent five years; the academic quality based on enrollment rate, graduation rate, and retention rate; and the NursingProcess.org editorial staff ratings and the nursing school reputation.
The NCLEX-PN exam is utilized by state boards around the country to test proficiency and grant practical nursing licensure (LPN). NCLEX-PN rates are one of the best ways to determine how well a school prepares its students for a career in practical nursing.
The data required for the NursingProcess.org rankings was gathered from IPEDs, State Board of Nursing Websites, U.S. News & World Report, Niche, Grad Reports, Rate My Professors, and the official school websites.
