It takes a dedicated student to pursue a degree in the medical field. But for nursing degrees, the challenge may not be the academic credentials, but the ability to pass the N.C.L.E.X. “I chose to attend CF based on their high N.C.L.E.X. passing rates,” said Laura Earnest, a Nursing major. Earnest is referring to CF’s N.C.L.E.X. statistics from 2012, where CF’s passing rate for the exam was at a 96 percent, compared to the state average which was at an 86 percent, and the national average of 90 percent.
