For the Metro Wire

RegisteredNursing.org ranked Mid-State Technical College ninth in Wisconsin for the 2019 Best RN Programs.

Forty colleges in Wisconsin that offer programming leading to an associate in nursing (ADN/ASN), a bachelor’s in nursing (BSN) or a direct entry MSN were part of the evaluation. Nursing programs were assessed on several factors, including how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond.

“This recognition represents the high quality of academic service Mid-State Technical College produces based on the core values of commitment, student-centeredness, and exceptional service,” said Colleen Kane, Mid-State’s dean of the School of Health and School of Protective and Human Services. “Our nursing students have truly thrived from the excellent quality instruction delivered by our outstanding faculty.”

The National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) is a nationwide exam for the licensing of nurses in the United States since 1982. Both past and present first-time NCLEX-RN pass-rates were part of the analysis; while Mid-State has historically had very high NCLEX pass-rates, 2018 was no exception with a pass-rate of 100 percent for all RN takers including repeaters, up from 93.33 percent achieved by the program’s first-time candidates in 2017.
