Bristol Community College has announced that the college’s Nursing program has recently been ranked 5th, on the 4th annual 2020 Best RN (Registered Nursing) programs in Massachusetts list by Registered Nursing.

The ranking highlighted the program’s experienced faculty who help students assume leadership roles in a professional setting in order to guide their nursing practice.

Based on its methodology, Registered Nursing ranked the top nursing schools in Massachusetts by analyzing current and historical NCLEX-RN “pass rates”, the percentage of graduates who pass the exam, out of the 40 RN programs in the state. NCLEX-RN pass rates were analyzed going back to the most recent years of data available, up to 5 years. School’s pass rates were averaged together and weighted by the recency of the exam, for example, exam pass rates in 2018 count more towards overall rankings than scores from 2014.
