CLARKSDALE – Coahoma Community College’s Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program has been named one of the top 10 registered nurse (RN) programs in the state by RegisteredNursing.org.
Designed to promote excellence in nursing by providing future nurses with the tools they need to succeed, RegisteredNursing.org is one of the nation’s leading websites dedicated to making the process easier for individuals interested in enrolling into nursing school.
The website canvassed 23 programs, including both public and private colleges and universities, statewide to rank the best RN programs.
Each program was assessed on several factors, including NCLEX-RN pass-rates, to determine its support of students towards licensure and beyond.
CCC’s ADN program was ranked No. 7.
“We have an amazing team in our health sciences division,” said CCC President Dr. Valmadge Towner. “This ranking is a testament to the hard work of our faculty and staff as well as to the quality of students that we serve. From our board of trustees to our students, this accolade is also a reflection of what we can accomplish when we have high expectations, harmony and an opportunity to perform.”
The methodology used to calculate the rankings began with obtaining NCLEX-RN exam pass rates from the past five years for all of the state’s RN programs. The programs’ pass rates were then averaged together and weighted by the recency of the exam.
“Coahoma Community College is home to a nursing program of good repute,” the website stated. “CCC graduates explore and develop a range of outcomes to improve patient care and team collaboration.”
