CFCC ADN Program Ranked Best in State by RegisteredNursing.org
For the second consecutive year, RegisteredNursing.org ranked the Cape Fear Community College Associate Degree Nursing program first among 30 other RN programs in the state. This follows the NursingProcess.org 2020 rankings, which also stacked the CFCC ADN program as best in the state. RegisteredNursing.org reviews schools that offer an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN/ASN), Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN), or Direct-Entry Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) and determines the rankings by a historical analysis of the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) exam pass rates and test scores. In the last four out of five years, CFCC ADN students have achieved a 100% pass rate.
“Receiving this recognition for our ADN program illustrates the unfailing dedication of faculty and staff who strive to deliver high-quality instruction and training to our students,” said CFCC President Jim Morton. “Our health science programs are consistently recognized for their outstanding quality. It’s exceptionally gratifying to see the efforts of our health science team be recognized at this level.”
“The success of our nursing students is a strong indicator of the hard work and dedication of nursing faculty, staff, and students,” said CFCC Dean of Health Sciences Mary Ellen Naylor. “We are extremely grateful for this recognition as we work to educate and equip great nurses for our community.”
The CFCC ADN program provides high-quality education to individuals in the community seeking a career as a registered nurse and promotes the transition of the licensed practical nurse into the role of a registered nurse. Upon completion of the course of study and successfully passing the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), the student may enter employment as a registered nurse.
