FAYETTEVILLE, NC – August 15, 2017 – Fayetteville Technical Community College (FTCC) announced today that the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program achieved a 100% first-attempt pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for its forty-two 2017 graduates. The NCLEX standardized exam is used by all state boars of nursing to determine if a candidate is prepared for entry-level nursing practice. The NCLEX tests application and analysis using nursing knowledge acquired in school while applying critical thinking skills to make appropriate nursing judgments.

The NCLEX is administered by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) as an independent, not-for-profit organization through which boards of nursing act and counsel together on matters of common interest and concern affecting public health, safety and welfare, including the developing of nursing licensure examinations. NCSBN is dedicated to developing psychometrically sound and legally defensible nursing licensure and certification examinations consistent with current practice.

The FTCC ADN program currently has eight students enrolled in the Fall 2017 class and is expanding to being for the first time a dual Spring 2018 cohort. The ADN program is nationally accredited trough the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). More information about the program can be found at
