Standardized Nursing Assessment Testing for Graduation
The standardized nursing assessment test, ATI Comprehensive Predictor, is a graduation requirement. The ATI Comprehensive Predictor must be passed to graduate and, therefore, before taking the NCLEX-RN examination. The minimum required score for passing is a 95% on the ATI Comprehensive Predictor and is based on national norms. The assessment test is given before commencement.  If a student does not achieve the minimum required score on the ATI Comprehensive Predictor on the first attempt, the student will be required to complete Virtual ATI (VATI). When the Virtual ATI nurse educator releases the student to take the NCLEX-RN, graduation requirements will be fulfilled.

No degree will be awarded until all requirements are met.
