The data presented here is for the past two years (2015-2016 and 2016-2017) for retention and placement and is calculated using the ABHES calculations. The student achievement rates for retention, placement, and/or licensure examination being disclosed are provided for information purposes only.

Retention Rate = (EE + G) / (BE + NS + RE)
EE = Ending Enrollment (Number of students in class, on clinical experience and/or leave of absence on June 30)

RE = Re-Entries (number of students that re-enter into school who dropped from a previous annual report time period)
Placement Rate = (F + R)/(G-U)
F = Graduates placed in their field of training
R* = Graduates placed in a related field of training
G = Total graduates
U** = Graduates unavailable for placement
*Related field refers to a position wherein the majority of the graduate’s job functions are related to the skills and knowledge acquired through successful completion of the training program.
