100% Pass Rate Achieved by Practical Nursing Students at Lakeshore Technical College




Pass rates among practical nursing students who took the most recent National Council Licensure Examination, commonly referred to as the “NCLEX,” show 100% of students from Lakeshore Technical College passing. The national pass rate was 81%.

“This achievement shows the dedication of our students and faculty and the quality of instruction students receive. We are extremely proud these graduates will be starting their nursing careers caring for our community members during such a time when the need for them is especially critical,” said Lakeshore Dean of Health and Human Services Michelle Zautner.

Lakeshore was one of 150 colleges out of 1,107 with 100% pass rates between April 2021-March 2022.

Upon passing the NCLEX, practical nursing students may identify and secure employment as licensed practical nurses in clinics, hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, and similar facilities. Many LPNs continue their education and become registered nurses.

Details on all of Lakeshore’s nursing programs, including a “bridge” program for current medical assistants to complete courses needed to become an LPN, can be found at gotoltc.edu/programs-and-courses/degree-programs
