Bethel recognized for nursing exam pass rate

NORTH NEWTON, KAN. – As Bethel College’s 2012 nursing graduates marked another passage recently from undergraduate study to professional life, they had even more reason to celebrate.

Twenty graduates took part in the nurse pinning ceremony Saturday, May 19, just about 24 hours before these same students would join 80 more class members to receive their Bethel diplomas.

And as the nursing graduates now prepare for their next challenge – the NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses) – they can take pride and some comfort in an award Bethel’s nursing program received.

Phyllis Miller, director of Bethel's Department of Nursing, announced recently that the Kansas State Board of Nursing had presented a certificate of excellence to Bethel College May 7, in recognition of an NCLEX-RN pass rate above the national average for first-time takers in 2011.

Bethel College is the only private, liberal arts college in Kansas listed in the 2011-12 analysis of top colleges and universities in the United States and is the highest-ranked Kansas college in the Washington Monthly annual college guide for 2011-12. The four-year liberal arts college is affiliated with Mennonite Church USA. For more information, see
