RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- Nevada's first-time pass rates for the National Council Licensing Examination for Registered Nurses were second in the nation in 2012, according the Nevada State Board of Nursing.

The Nevada State Board of Nursing has learned that Nevada ranked second behind Oregon, which edged out the Silver State, 94.40 percent to 94.37 percent, for the year.

Western Nevada College says their nursing students achieved a 100 percent pass rate after completing their two-year Associate of Applied Science degrees in nursing last spring. The NCLEX-RN test validates a graduate’s competencies as a nurse and helps nursing boards make licensing decisions.

For 2012, 871 of the 923 students who sat for the NCLEX test in Nevada were successful, according to Western Nevada College.
