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

For release: May 5, 2011
For press information, contact Gabrielle Maxey, 901/678-2843

Thirty-seven recent graduates of the University of Memphis’ Loewenberg School of Nursing who took the NCLEX (National Council Licensure EXamination) had a 100 percent passage rate. The students took the exam during the spring 2011 semester. The announcement of the perfect passage rate was made by the Tennessee Board of Nursing.

“This achievement is remarkable in its own,” said Dr. Lin Zhan, professor and dean of the Loewenberg School. “I want to thank our dedicated faculty, and in particular the faculty who teach in the undergraduate program, for their concerted efforts and dedication to bringing the best teaching, coaching, and mentoring to our students. This led to their success.”

The director of undergraduate programs is Dr. Linda Finch, who is also associate dean of the School.

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.
