Program Outcomes

Program outcomes are measurable performance indicators designed to evaluate how well the Lawrence Memorial/Regis College (LM/RC) Nursing Program is achieving its mission and goals, so those interested in applying can assess its merits relative to other accredited nursing programs. 

Performance indicators can include, but are not limited to:   

  • Program completion rates  
  • NCLEX licensure examination pass rates 
  • Employment rates 
  • Graduate satisfaction 

Program completion rates (aggregate)
BORN criterion on which LM/RC is evaluated: 

  • 70% of students will complete the program within 150% of the stated program length beginning with enrollment in first nursing course
  • 50% of students will complete the program within 100% of the stated program length beginning with enrollment in the first nursing course.

In 2021:

  • 79% of graduates completed the program within 150% of the stated program length
  • 62% of graduates completed the program within 100% of the stated program length.

NCLEX licensure exam pass rates (aggregate)
ACEN criterion on which LM/RC is evaluated:  80% of first-time test takers will successfully complete the NCLEX-RN licensure exam as reported to NCSBN annually during the same 12-month period. 

NCLEX pass rate for LM/RC graduates is 85% for the three-year mean for 2019, 2020 and 2021.

Employment rates
LM/RC graduates are surveyed one year after graduation regarding their current employment. 

For 2021, 87% of graduates are employed as RNs within one year of graduation.

Graduate satisfaction
Each graduate is surveyed during the week prior to graduation, using a Likert scale of 1 (lowest) to 5 (highest). 

Respondents’ average:

  • 2020 – 2021 = 4.30 is above LM/RC’s benchmark of 4.0 out of 5.0
  • 2021 – 2022 = 4.70 is above LM/RC’s benchmark of 4.0 out of 5.0
