The Board of Registered Nursing (BRN) has updated the pass rates for all the nursing programs in California. While many program pass rates plummeted as much as 10% or more during COVID, we are proud to share that AUHS pass rates increased by 6% (to 85.14% from 79%). AUHS nursing students were also able to continue and complete required clinical hours in order to progress and graduate, whereas many other programs were not as fortunate. AUHS is truly blessed!  

The nursing programs at AUHS continue to thrive despite COVID. All BSN nursing students have returned to campus this quarter and MSN students finally have had the opportunity to have a face-to-face class on campus. The students are excited to be back in the classrooms, learning new skills in the skill and simulation labs (scenario-based teaching, so they can put it all together), learning about Interprofessional Education (IPE) with Pharmacy students (BSN & MSN students), and helping our community (University Health and Book Fair).  The pass rate for our last cohort is currently at 88.7% and we are hoping to reach the 90% range for the 2021/2022 year-end pass rate.
