One of New York’s Best
Students who complete the required coursework are eligible to sit for the National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nurses (NCLEX-PN). Maria graduates have over a 90% pass rate on the exam, consistently surpassing their peers in other New York LPN programs. This strong performance has earned Maria a top 10 ranking in New York State from PracticalNursing.org.
