Achievement Rates Among Our Graduates

pre licensure grad rates

post licensure grad rates

 

Graduation rates in the tables above are defined as follows (all semester counts exclude summer):

  • 100% or on-time graduation rate is graduation within 8 semesters for pre-licensure students and within 4 semesters for post-licensure students.
  • 150% graduation rate is graduation within 12 semesters for pre-licensure students and within 6 semesters for post-licensure students.
  • 200% graduation rate is graduation within 16 semesters for pre-licensure students and within 8 semesters for post-licensure students. 
  • Denotes the fact that the percentage is provided even though one or more BSMCON cohorts within the selected academic year have not reached the required timeframe. For example, none of the pre-licensure cohorts has reached the 16 semesters required to count as 200% of normal time.

BSN        
2012-2013 73% 100% 92% n/a
2013-2014 66% 100% 94% 100%
RN-BSN        
2012-2013 95% 100% 93% n/a
2013-2014 71% 100% 98% n/a
2014-2015 37% 100% 92% n/a

Key:

  1. On-Time graduation for BSN and RN-BSN is completion within 8 and 4 semesters, respectively per our accreditation guidelines.
  2. The percent of graduates (who graduated between July 1 and June 30) who are placed in the related field of study by September 15th of the year following graduation.  This rate is calculated by taking the total number of graduates placed divided by the total number of graduates minus number of graduates unavailable for placement due to medical issues, active duty military service or continuing education.
  3. The percent of students who are retained in the program during the identified academic year.  This rate is calculated by the enrollment (as of June 30) plus graduates divided by beginning enrollment (as of July 1) plus new starts and readmits. 
  4. A first-time, first start student is a student who has no prior postsecondary experience attending any institution for the first time at the undergraduate level.
