Lincoln Students Achieve Outstanding NCLEX Pass Rates.
For the third year in a row, Lincoln Tech students passed the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN) with flying colors, averaging passing rates of 80%* or better at its New Jersey campuses – with one campus reaching a 96%** NCLEX pass rates!
The NCLEX exam ensures that new hires have the competencies required to safely perform their duties. It incorporates medical, surgical, pediatric, psychiatric and obstetric topic-related questions. The best way to prepare for the test is through real-world experience, and Lincoln Tech’s Practical Nursing training program provides students with the chance to build the skills and knowledge they will be tested on – the skills that help ensure success in the Practical Nursing field. NCLEX preparation is incorporated through the Virtual ATI (Assessment Technologies Institute) program, a component of the last class in all Practical Nursing programs.
