Nursing Explorer Ranks NVCC's Nursing Program in Connecticut's Top Ten

The Nursing Program at Naugatuck Valley Community College ranked second in the top ten nursing programs in Connecticut by Nursing Explorer, a research organization that gathers and analyzes a vast amount of public data on all universities, colleges, and vocational schools that provide nursing programs from the following sources:

 

 

 

 

 

The criteria for evaluation are based on objective accreditation metrics, including data from over 3,000 nursing schools, from which 1,721 were ranked across 45 states. Their ranking formula uses the NCLEX pass rate and net-price as its parameters. The formula also gives a 70% weight to NCLEX pass rate and 30% weight to net-price. The result of the calculation is a score between 1 and 100 that reflects the quality of education offered at the school and affordability. If a school has a high NCLEX pass rate and low tuition (or provides a sizeable financial aid), then its rank will be higher. According to their best-value RN programs rankings list, NVCC is placed at the #2 spot out of 21 programs in Connecticut.

 

Every year Nursing Explorer makes this information available to students as a searchable database.
