How to Pick a Good Nursing School

Once you complete nursing school, you must pass the NCLEX exam. Hopefully you’ll pass the first time you take it. I recommend picking a nursing school that has a high first time NCLEX pass rate. Every 4 years the NCLEX changes its content and questions so the new cycle may have lower pass rates. You can find the 2013-2017 NCLEX pass rates here. You’ll also see how many students attended each school.

For NYU, these are the 2008-2012 NCLEX first time pass rates. Compare other New York State nursing schools there.
