Concordia College Nursing Students Rank in Top 5 Statewide PDF Print Email


By Holly Magnani, Director of Marketing, Concordia College New York

Mar. 7, 2018:  The nursing program at Concordia College New York has once again distinguished itself with a first-time NCLEX-RN pass rate that places it among the top five baccalaureate nursing programs in New York State. Concordia’s nursing students achieved a 2017 pass rate of over 96%, well above National (87%) and New York State (85%) averages. 

The NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) is the examination required for all nursing graduates who seek nursing licensure. The exam is rigorous, administered in a computerized adaptive testing format that can take up to six hours to complete. The results are pass/fail and the test is individualized, based on examinees’ specific responses. To succeed, students must have intensive preparation in all areas of nursing study.
What puts Concordia College’s nursing program at the top of the state? Karen Bourgeois, interim dean and associate professor of Concordia’s Division of Nursing, credits the college’s hands-on approach. "Here, every student is known and faculty is invested in every student. In its 11 years, the program has grown in both enrollment and reputation. Concordia nursing grads are sought-after, and many are offered jobs during the intensive hospital internships the program requires."
"These scores are definitely exciting, but the test is just one part of what we do here," said Dean Bourgeois. "What’s most satisfying is knowing that each and every student who graduates from our nursing program is ready to go out and be a really good nurse." In 2016, Concordia’s first-time pass rate was 95%, also among the best in the state.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
