incompetence on display as NC A&T
2015 NCLEX-RN scores fall below standards again
Michael Pippen 02.23.18
Article 1. Chapter 116. Higher Education defines the purpose of
the University of North Carolina is to foster the development of a
well-planned and coordinate system of higher education, to improve
the quality of education, to extend its benefits and to encourage
an economical use of the State's resources. None of which
took place Dec. 15, 2015 when the Gang of 32 Board members
in blatant disregard for Chapter 116 and
Board of Governors policy 400.1.7,
arbitrary and captious
reinstated NC A&T suspended BSN Nursing program under the nebulas
pretext, NC A&T Spring 2015 graduates achieved an 89.3% NCLEX
passing rate for first time test takers, meeting the Board 85%
programs in North Carolina are under the jurisdiction of the NC Board
of Nursing and the public four-year programs are under the
jurisdiction of the Board of Governors. Just as the Board of Governors
must approve a new degree program in nursing, the State Board of
Nursing must sanction the program and approve an upper limit for the
programís enrollment. The Board of Nursing does a yearly review of
programs primarily based on their studentsí pass rates on the
licensure exam for the RN, and General Administration does a parallel
review on behalf of the Board of Governors. At the time of
reinstatement [Dec. 15, 2015] NC Board of Nursing web indicate NCA&T
NCLEX-RN score for First time test writers FOR YEAR 2015 AS OF
01/01/2015 TO 09/30/2015, was 76% , two percentage above program
elimination and nine percentage points below UNC 85% standard.
NC A&T PERFORMANCE RESULTS FOR NCLEX-RN CANDIDATES TESTED IN NC AND
OTHER JURISDICTIONS FOR YEAR 2015 AS OF 01/01/2015 TO 12/31/2015 pass
rate was 77% for first time test writers, three
percentage points above BSN program elimination and eight points below
85% Board standard the threshold for program reinstatement.
It maybe the coffee, bottle water, or tea which allow the Buffoons not
to realize the scope of their illusion, one which every UNC System
institution and community college with a nursing program may know, the
arbitrary and captious reinstatement of NCA&T BSN program didn't
improve the quality of education in North Carolina nor at NCA&T.
NC Board of Nursing:
averages have been posted to our website at http://www.ncbon.com/myfiles/downloads/3-year-rn-pass-rate-2013-2015.pdf.
NC A&T will be on their second year of warning status. If the
NCLEX pass rates are still below for 2016, then NC A&T will appear
before the Board in January 2017 for discussion and/or action."
UNC Board of Governors
next schedule meetings is March 04, 2016 at Fayetteville State
University at which the UNC 2015 Nursing Report should be considered.
