Brockport/Nazareth collaboration yields impressive results for students

BROCKPORT, NY—The GRC (Greater Rochester Collaborative) MSW (master’s in social work) Program between Nazareth College and The College of Brockport is proud to announce that its graduates who took the licensing exam in 2013 achieved among the highest first-time pass rates in New York State. The program’s first-time pass rate was 91 percent.

There are 17 schools of social work or social work programs in New York State and the range for the first-time pass rate was from 52 percent to 93 percent, with the average for all schools in New York at 80 percent. The national average first-time pass rate is 82 percent.
