Lewis University Nursing Program is Highly Ranked in Illinois

Published: February 13, 2017.

Student success on the NCLEX-RN exam consistently in the last five years prompted the independent guide RegisteredNursing.org to rank Lewis University’s nursing program as second in Illinois.

“Lewis University’s ranking indicates both quality and value, and attests to a curriculum that is continually being modified to meet the demands of the healthcare system,” Dr. Peggy Rice, dean of the Lewis University College of Nursing and Health Professions.

RegisteredNursing.org ranked the nursing programs in the state by analyzing current and historical NCLEX-RN pass rates. Over the last five years, Lewis University has consistently had at least 95 percent of its students pass the NCLEX exam.

"With attention to the pacing of the healthcare field today," said Brooke Wallace, founder and managing editor at RegisteredNursing.org. “Lewis University creates leaders in the high-tech patient care environment.”

Lewis University’s College of Nursing and Health Professions has been developing nurses at all levels for more than 40 years. The faculty work with students to develop a compassionate, holistic approach to patient care, addressing physical symptoms while caring for the heart, mind and soul. Lewis University nurses become expert practitioners and innovative leaders who will transform practice in an increasingly complex healthcare system.

Lewis University is an innovative and entrepreneurial Catholic university offering market-relevant undergraduate and graduate programs to 6,500 students. Sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers, Lewis University is nationally recognized for preparing intellectually engaged, ethically grounded, globally connected and socially responsible graduates.
