SUSLA School of Nursing Sets the Bar – Graduates Achieve 100% Pass Rate

Shreveport, LA - Southern University at Shreveport’s School of Nursing students have consistently achieved National Council Licensure – RN (NCLEX-RN) with pass rates in the 90th percentile. Recently, the department surpassed its own record and achieved a 100% pass rate with all of its Fall 2009 graduates receiving national certification.

The SUSLA Nursing Department is built upon a foundation of excellence and nurtures its students throughout their studies to fulfill career and personal goals.  The program is designed to support students who desire a career in nursing, but for whom the doors of the nursing profession have been traditionally closed.  “Our program considers and accepts persons in their entirety while mentoring them to become successful registered nurses,” says the School of Nursing Dean, Dr. Sandra Tucker.

Interested applicants are required to successfully complete the National League for Nursing Pre-Admission Exam-RN, have an overall GPA of 2.5 or above, complete at least 12 hours on Southern University at Shreveport’s campus, and successfully complete pre-requisite course requirements.  Because selection to the professional component of the nursing program is based on NLN Pre-Admission Exam-RN score, overall grade point average, and the satisfactory completion of all other pre-requisite requirement, there is no waiting list.
