Gillette College’s class of 2014 nursing graduates passed the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses at 95.9 percent, said Louise Posten, Director of Nursing.
The average pass rate for the state of Wyoming is 82.7 percent, and the national average is 82.86 percent, said Posten, who oversees the hands-on nursing program for the Northern Wyoming Community College District.
