Kansas Wesleyan University’s Division/Department of Nursing Education continues to demonstrate quality outcomes. During the 2012 year, KWU nursing students held a 93.55 percent National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX) pass rate compared to the national average of 90.34 percent. The program was recently recognized by the Kansas State Board of Nursing (KSBN) and received a Certificate of Excellence for this achievement.
“Our students continue to excel after graduation from KWU,” said Chair/Director of Nursing Education Dr. Linda Adams-Wendling. “Our faculty continue to prepare our nursing graduates with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to succeed in the nursing profession. The recognition by KSBN of our most recent NCLEX pass rate is one great example of the quality of our nursing program.” Kansas Wesleyan University offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree and a RN-BSN program.
KWU recently pinned 38 nursing graduates into the profession, the largest BSN class in KWU history. The program is approved by KSBN and is nationally accredited by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) [formerly known as the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission] (3343 Peachtree Road, NE, Suite 500; Atlanta, Georgia 30326; Phone: (404) 975-5000, FAX: (404) 975-5020, www.nlnac.org).
