You're reading the headline, not the article. I would like for you to quote one line from any reliable source that talks about an executive order. This article talks about "executive action." And it does so because the BAFTE is a department of the Executive branch of government (you remember the three branches, right?). This is not to say that the current president doesn't support the action,…

Are you daft? He may or may not support this? The whole point of the article and many others is that he, Obama, is signing a executive order to do this. Proposing a reclassification is one thing but signing an executive order is another. You covering for him is almost laughable if it were not for the erosion of our rights by this man and administration.

PracticalNursing.org Ranks JWCC a Top Ten Nursing Program in the State of Illinois

6 months, 3 weeks ago by Bryan Nichols

97% pass rate cited as main reason for high rating

John Wood Community College's Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program is ranked among the top ten in the state by PracticalNursing.org. 

JWCC's four-year National Council Licensure Examination for Practical Nursing (NCLEX-PN) average pass rate of 97.96 percent was the major component used to rank the College's program ninth among the state's 43 community colleges that offer nursing.  Only two percentage points separated the 1st and 10th ranked programs in Illinois.  

The NCLEX-PN exam is a nursing proficiency exam, used to determine both the efficiency of a nursing program's teaching and to measure students' preparation to enter the medical field.  Because this test is administered to nursing students nationwide, PracticalNursing.org feels that NCLEX-PN exam results are the strongest indicator of nursing success. 

The results of this study were taken from a sample of compiled NCLEX-PN test scores of JWCC nursing students over the past four years.  JWCC's scores were then compared to those of 43 other institutions in the state of Illinois.  JWCC students scored higher than 80 percent of other nursing students in Illinois.

"We are always striving to have the best nursing instruction and student experiences possible," said Lisa Tournear, chair and assistant professor of health sciences at JWCC.  "This ranking shows our students exceed expectations, and our program will continue to produce graduates ready to provide excellent patient care."
