The nursing class at Morgan State University achieves the perfect approval rate «CBS Baltimore

BALTIMORE (WJZ) – Nursing graduates from Morgan State University are recognized by an important achievement.

The nursing class at Morgan State University in 2018 obtained a perfect passing rate, the first perfect score for a full nursing program class at Morgan, and the only nursing program of four years in Maryland that achieved a 100 percent approval rate this year.

"Going through the nursing program really showed me the definition of hard work and it really showed me what is worked hard so that it can come true," said Derick Mensah, a graduate of nursing at Morgan State.

What is the same effort that was made in your final test, the NCLEX-RN exam.

"A lot of things were done, many nights of insomnia, but we did it and we were surprised that we approved 100 percent," said Kyla Smith, another graduate of nursing.

The nine nursing graduates of the class of 2018 obtained a first-time approval rate of 100 percent.

"When you consider the things you have to overcome to reach the approval rate and to be successful the first time, it is a superhuman effort to be applauded," said Maija Anderson, director of the nursing program for the State of Morgan.

And an inspiring achievement for other nursing students in the program.

"They are doing well in their fields and it gives us hope," said current nursing student Breana Carraway.

The nine nursing graduates have been placed in hospitals throughout the state.
