WCC Continues Nursing Exam Success

Graduates of Wayne Community College’s nursing programs continue to give the college bragging rights.

All 18 members of the Practical Nursing class of 2018 passed the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN) on their first attempt. They join the past two classes in their 100 percent rate.

Of the 37 Associate Degree Nursing 2018 graduates, 92 percent passed their licensure exam (NCLEX-RN) on their first attempt. That program’s three-year trending average is 95 percent first time passage.

“I am extremely proud of our student’s accomplishments, and the hard work and dedication the nursing faculty have demonstrated to support them,” said WCC Nursing Department Chair Billy Tart. “Our success rates are well above the national average.”

“These rates are important in maintaining accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing as well as approval by the NC Board of Nursing,” Tart said. Both programs are accredited by the commission and fall under the jurisdiction of the board.

Both of Wayne Community College’s nursing programs are limited admission. The Practical Nursing Program is a three-semester program that prepares students to be licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The Associate Degree Nursing Program is a five-semester program that prepares students to practice as registered nurses (RNs).
