The nursing program at Seward County Community College/Area Technical School, deemed the best in Kansas by Practical Nursing magazine, has one opening left for the upcoming fall semester. The associate degree nursing program, which builds upon the Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) credential, will start Aug. 11 and run through the academic year.

Spots in the class are limited, so the opening is a rare opportunity to join the program.

“We have gone through the waiting list and would love to be able to fill this opening,” said Director of Nursing Veda King.

The applicant must be a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) and must have completed the following college classes with a grade of “C” or higher:

• English Comp I

• English Comp II or Speech

• Anatomy and Physiology

• General Psychology

• Developmental Psychology

• Microbiology

• Nutrition

Upon completion of the nine-month program, the graduate will be eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLIX-RN) to become a Registered Nurse (RN). The nursing program at SCCC/ATS boasts a 100 percent pass rate, and has done so for eight straight years. That’s well above the most recently published Kansas average pass rate of 91.99 percent and the national average pass rate of 84.23 percent.

Since it began in 1979, the SCCC/ATS Practical Nursing program has launched 19 graduating classes with 100-percent pass rates: 1981, 1984, 1985, 1986, 1988, 1989, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012.
