UticaABSN NCLEX Pass Rate in New York

After graduating from our ABSN program in New York, you will need to take and pass the NCLEX® licensure exam that allows you to enter the workforce as a registered nurse.

About the NCLEX-RN Exam

According to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN), nurses are among the largest group of licensed professionals in the United States. Because nursing is an occupation that could potentially harm the public if improperly practiced, every nursing school graduate must pass the NCLEX to receive registered nurse licensure.

Administered by the NCSBN, the NCLEX-RN exam helps to ensure public safety by testing the knowledge and skills of nursing school graduates. Essentially, the exam helps to ensure graduates have what it takes to provide safe, competent nursing care at the entry level.

Completed at a designated test center, the NCLEX-RN exam can include up to 265 questions, with the majority being in a multiple-choice format. With a time limit of six hours, the exam covers the below topic areas.

  • Physiological Integrity
  • Safe and Effective Care Environment
  • Psychosocial Integrity
  • Health Promotion and Maintenance

While our ABSN faculty spends a significant amount of time preparing students for the NCLEX, we also encourage you to visit the NCSBN website for additional information on what to expect before, during, and after the exam.
