November 21, 2007
Wor-Wic Community College nursing and radiologic technology graduates once again surpassed national and state averages of students who passed their licensure examinations on the first attempt in 2007.

“Our 2007 pass rates are 100 percent for licensed practical nursing (LPN) graduates and 97 percent for registered nursing (RN) graduates,” said Denise D. Marshall, nursing department head.

The national average pass rate for LPNs and RNs is 88 percent. State averages are 95 percent for LPNs and 89 percent for RNs.

According to Karie Solembrino, radiologic technology department head, “Wor-Wic’s radiography students have had a 100 percent pass rate for 13 consecutive years.”

Included in Wor-Wic’s pass rate percentages are 34 LPN graduates and 35 RN graduates who took the National Council of State Boards of Nursing licensure examination, as well as eight radiologic technology graduates who completed the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists examination.

More than 90 percent of Wor-Wic’s nursing and radiologic technology graduates are working on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
