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.  Beginning 2022 we will track program completion at “on time” or 100%: 50% of students will complete the program within 100% of the stated program length beginning with enrollment in the first nursing course.

  • 2017-2018: 78% @ 150%
  • 2018-2019: 74% @ 150%
  • 2019-2020: 72% @ 150%; 66% @ 100%
  • 2020-2021: 79% @150%; 62% @ 100%

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. 

  • 2017 pass rates:  86.32% 
  • 2018 pass rates:  83.17%% 
  • 2019 pass rates:  90.00% 
  • 2020 pass rates:  86.00%
  • 2021 pass rates:  79.41% (above the national AD pass rate)
  • 2022 Quarter 1 pass rates:  80% (above the national AD pass rate)

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

Respondents employed in the nursing field within 6 – 12 months of graduation = 94.4%

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
