More than 91 percent of Columbus State University’s School of Nursing graduates pass the NCLEX, the national nursing licensure exam. This passage rate is a testament to our faculty and the hands-on experiences they provide to our students. Many of our professors still practice what they teach, so they are able to create a relevant four-semester nursing curriculum (starting in the junior year - the first four semesters of course work are pre-requisites.)
Another testament to our success is the fact that the two major local health organizations committed $1 million to Columbus State’s nursing program to increase nursing graduates and raise the level of nursing education in Columbus.
Nursing students who have been accepted into nursing programs may apply for available scholarships. Please see resource page for more information.
