Glossary

Overall Pass Rate is the percentage of graduates who took the licensure exam and passed after any attempt.

Cohort overall NCLEX pass rates are first reported six months after each cohort’s program completion date and are adjusted monthly thereafter.

Retention Rate is the percentage of learners that were enrolled during the stated academic year and were still enrolled or graduated within the same academic year. ABHES calculates Retention Rate as follows: Retention Rate = (EE + G) / (BE + NS + RE) EE= Ending Enrollment (Number of students in class, on clinical experience and/or leave of absence on June 30) G= Graduates BE= Beginning Enrollment (Number of students in class, on clinical experience and/or leave of absence on July 1) NS= New Starts RE= Re-Entries (number of students that re-enter into school who dropped from a previous annual report time period) At a minimum, an institution maintains the names of all enrollees by program, start date, and graduation date.

Placement Rate is all learners that graduated and work in the field as a registered nurse.

Normal Time is the amount of time necessary for a learner to complete all requirements for a degree or certificate according to the College catalog.

On-time is the percentage of learners who completed the program during the most recent completed award year within the amount of time necessary to complete all requirements for the program according to the College catalog (also known as “Normal Time”). Completion Rate = (# of learners who completed the program within the normal time*100)/Total # of learners who completed the program during the most recently completed award year
