When asked what sets Carroll University apart from other nursing programs, Teresa Kaul, the chair of the department of nursing, has a quick answer. “We’re ranked number one in Wisconsin,” she says. The university boasts a 96.3% pass rate for the NCLEX exam to become a registered nurse, the highest in the state.
“I think really it comes down to our dedicated faculty,” Kaul says. “They put a lot of time and investment in our students. That all goes into their success, not only on that test, but certainly as a nurse. And that’s really what’s most important – we’re graduating skilled, competent nurses.”
Carroll offers a two-year associate degree and a four-year bachelor’s in nursing. And most recently, the university added a master’s of science in nursing for people who already have a bachelor’s.
“Having this professional education instilled in a liberal arts curriculum really prepares students to not only be competent professionals, but great citizens of the world.” Kaul says.
