The SON pass rate of 96.7 percent compares to a Massachusetts average of 82.94 percent for bachelor of science in nursing degree programs, and 82.52 percent for all schools combined. Nationally, the average pass rate for BS nursing degree programs was 83.9 percent, and 83.83 percent for all schools combined.
"We are very pleased," said SON Dean Barbara H. Munro. "For the past several years our students have had similar results, which means that we are consistently almost 15 percent above state and national levels. These results can be attributed to our excellent, committed students and to the hard work and dedication of our extraordinary faculty members. The School of Nursing's commitment to excellence in clinical practice is exemplified by these results."
