NCLEX-RN Results

Program Completion Rate measures the percentage of graduates completing the program on-time. The Program Completion Rate is calculated by dividing the number of graduates that completed the program on-time by the number of students that were enrolled in that class as of the first day of the first nursing course and at the time when a student can no longer receive a 100% tuition refund for the first nursing course regardless of the source of funds used to pay the students’ tuition.  The assessment cycle timeframe is from August 1-July 31 each year.

Graduation Rate for Full-time, First-time, Certificate-Seeking Students

Completion Rate for full-time, first time undergraduates measures the percentage of full-time, first-time students that complete the program within 150% of the normal completion time. This rate is calculated by dividing the number of full-time, first-time students completing the program within 150% of the normal completion time by the number of full-time, first time students enrolled in that Class as of October 15 of the entering year.  The timeframe encompasses the initial entry into the program (August 1) until 1 year post scheduled graduation (July 31). (3 year period)

Graduation rates of first-time, full-time certificate seeking students are not categorized by gender, racial/ethnic subgroup, or reciept/non-receipt of a federal Pell grant or subsidized Stafford loan in order to protect student privacy. Trinity School of Nursing enrolled too few of such students to disclose or report with confidence and confidentiality.
