Another NMC graduate passes NCLEX on first attempt (September 20, 2017)

(NMC) — Another Northern Marianas College graduate has joined the list of students who have passed the challenging National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses or NCLEX-RN. Judith Galang Diaz, who graduated from NMC last May, recently took the exam and passed on her first attempt.

The NCLEX-RN tests individuals nursing knowledge, skills and abilities essential to the safe and effective practice of nursing at the entry level. The exam is used by nursing boards in all U.S. states and territories to award nursing licenses.

“We are extremely proud of Judith’s accomplishment as well as the other nursing students who have been able to reach this important milestone of passing the NCLEX,” said NMC President Dr. Carmen Fernandez.

Recent NMC graduates who have also passed the NCLEX include Mika Sablan, Lovely Lopez, Gemmilie Eugenio, YuGeun Oh, Michael Hidalgo, Joy Waldo and Joshua Tanghal.

“Judith has a bright future in the nursing field and we expect to see great things from her as her educational and professional journey continues,” said NMC Nursing Department Chair Rosa M. Tudela. “We wish her the best on her future career in health care.”

“I chose to pursue my nursing degree to help people and care for them in times of need,” said Diaz. “Also, I do believe that with this degree there is a big potential to make a difference in many lives.”

“NMC has enhanced my knowledge, skills and abilities to be able to get my degree and pass the NCLEX,” Diaz said.

Asked what advice she would give other students who are preparing to take the NCLEX, Diaz said, “study hard, focus and manage your time efficiently. Do not stop trying to achieve your goals or dreams in life.”
