WELDON, N.C. – The Halifax Community College (HCC) School of Nursing had a 100% pass rate for the National Council Licensure Exam (NCLEX).
The NCLEX is the national board exam for all registered and practical nurses. The five- hour exam, which covers topics ranging from safety and infection control to reducing patient risks, is the last step before a student obtains his or her nursing license. “I am proud of the nursing faculty who have worked hard to improve our nursing program and help our students to be successful,” said Dr. Michael Elam, president of HCC. "We continue to strive to improve everywhere we can, and I am looking forward to the success of the next nursing class."
The HCC School of Nursing prepares registered and practical nurses, as well as Certified Nurses Assistants (CNA) for entry in to the workforce. For more information on the requirements, or to inquire about admission to the program, please contact Judy Yates, program director, at 252-536- 7231.
