Nursing students from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev and the Jerusalem College of Technology’s Machon Tal Nursing Department were 100% successful in passing the Health Ministry’s licensing exam.

All 88 of BGU’s nursing graduates – female and male – passed the exam.

JCT said Sunday that its 102 students all passed, with an average test score of 77.

Machon Tal of JCT focuses on national religious and ultra-Orthodox women – and some men in a separate program – who study religious subjects in addition to nursing for their B.S. degree.

Only 70.5% all nursing graduates in the country passed the license exam.

JCT president Prof. Chaim Sukenik congratulated the students and teachers at Machon Tal for the achievement and said patients who encounter the graduates will benefit from the highest level of care. Nursing school director Dr. Chaya Greenberger added that it takes care to ensure a high level of teaching and that the health system – which suffers from a severe shortage of nurses – will benefit from the new nursing personnel.
