BY Benjamin Glover

A year ago, N.C. Central University’s nursing program seemed about as likely to post the highest passing rates in the UNC-system as Florida State now does to lead the Atlantic Coast Conference basketball standings.

With a passing rate of only 66 percent in 1999, the Board of Governors threatened to shut down the program unless their scores improved.

Just a year later, N.C. Central boasted the highest score in the state — 94 percent passing rate — on the National Council Licensure Examination of Registered Nurses, referred to as the N.C. LEXRN.

Donna Benson, who served as interim chancellor at N.C. Central in 1992 and worked with officials to raise test scores, said she employed several methods to help the school improve its passing rate, such as new software, external consultants for the test, small work groups of students and tutorial services.

Benson said much of the school’s improvement resulted from improved classes and curriculums but added that the students played a vital role.
