100% Pass Rate Achieved by Nursing Graduates at Lakeshore Technical College

All associate degree nursing graduates passed the licensure exam to identify as registered nurses.




Pass rates among nursing graduates who took the most recent National Council Licensure Examination for registered nurses, commonly referred to as the “NCLEX,” show 100% of associate degree nursing graduates from Lakeshore Technical College passing. The national pass rate was 93%.

“Success like this does not happen by chance. It originates from the continued dedication and commitment of the program faculty and staff,” says Lakeshore Dean of Health and Public Safety Ryan Skabroud. “With almost all reporting having jobs in our community when they graduated, we are very proud of the great impact our nursing graduates are having.”

With 38 graduates, Lakeshore’s May class was its largest since 2019.

Skabroud says the college is looking forward to graduating twice as many students in health care and public safety programs once its new Froedtert & Medical College of Wisconsin Center for Healthcare Excellence opens this fall.

Upon passing the NCLEX for RNs, individuals may identify and secure employment as RNs in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, and similar facilities.
