U of M Nursing Graduates Have Perfect Passage Rate on Licensing Exam

For release: July 25, 2011
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901/678-2843

Fifty-three recent graduates of the University of Memphis Loewenberg School of Nursing had a 100 percent passage rate on the NCLEX (National Council Licensure EXamination). The students took the exam between January and June 2011. The announcement was made by the National Council of Licensure Examinations for Registered Nurses.

“I’d like to offer kudos to all of our faculty and staff, in particular to those who have worked closely to teach, mentor, and advise the BSN students,” said Dr. Lin Zhan, professor and dean of the Loewenberg School. “The success of our students truly reflects their dedication to excellence in teaching and preparing future professional nurses.”

The Loewenberg School offers a BSN program with three options and an MSN program with five concentrations. Last year, the E-MSN program and associate professor Dr. Joan Thomas received a $788,000 grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration to prepare future nurse executives. Also in 2010, a team of researchers, led by associate professor Dr. Robert A. Koch, received a $1.4 million grant from the U.S. Department of Defense to ensure effective interaction between civilian and military personnel in the event of a catastrophe requiring medical evacuation.
