Thanks for the answer!

Too bad. He could have helped QND. I understand that funds was the problem. His wife wasn't hired as a teacher (only teachers aid) and he hoped to land a side job as principal at another school, which didn't happen, so he had to follow the money. Hey QND, Andy Douglas has brothers.

Honestly, it seems to me like QND dodged a bullet and will be far better off without "Coach" Shields. Dude has taken four coaching jobs in the last six years?!? That's absolutely ridiculous... and it certainly seems to indicate pretty clearly that his priority is NOT the young men that he's coaching (or even in displaying any sort of long-term loyalty to the many schools that he was hired…

I don't think he was brought here to work, he came when he was 16. This is crap about a permanent resident and that he came legally. There is only one person responsible for him being legal.

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

11 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."
