Colorado Springs, Colo. – June 20, 2014 – The Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) Nursing program has now achieved a 100 percent NCLEX pass rate for three consecutive years. These pass rates indicate the high quality of professional nurses entering into our community’s workforce.
Many students use these pass rates to choose a college because it acts as a guide to the quality of the program and their potential for success in passing the national licensing exam upon graduation.

Started in 1971, the PPCC Nursing program maintains full approval from the Colorado State Board of Nursing and accreditation from the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN).
