Pass Rate for CRNA Boards at Marquette University
As this is a brand new program, there are no current statistics, but we will update this information as soon as it becomes available.
Please note: It is extremely rare for a student at any CRNA school to not eventually pass the exam. Most students who don’t pass the first time pass the second. Very rarely does a person ever take it a third time. This statistic only measures how well the program prepares students to pass the test the first time around.
