For the second time in three years, Clatsop Community College’s nursing program has been ranked #1 for the “Best RN Programs in Oregon” by RegisteredNursing.org this past year. The site states, “Clatsop Community College is dedicated to providing the best nursing program for their ASN students. Class sizes, rigorous curriculum and seasoned faculty will help prepare graduates to be the best in the field.”
The college’s nursing program accepts 24 students into the nursing program per year at fall term after they successfully complete 45 credits of entry-level classes. These students then spend the next 2 years in lecture and lab settings at the college refining their skills while going through clinical rotations in the local hospitals and health care settings to gain real world experience. By the end of the Associate of Nursing program, students have accumulated 900 hours of hands on training perfecting their skills and are eligible to take the licensing exam for registered nursing.
CCC Director of Nursing, Allison Sansom conveyed how proud she is of the students and faculty who work so hard. “The nursing program is rigorous and requires the ability to prioritize studies, the flexibility to think in new ways and the dedication to develop new skill sets. Student achievement and outcomes are why we are rated #1.”
CCC President Chris Breitmeyer commends the campus services and faculty that help set the students up for success in the program. “We rank high because of our commitment to our students. From the moment students are enrolled and taking general classes, there are support services and engaged faculty to build their skills so when they enter the nursing program they are ready to hit that subject matter hard, excel in their nursing classes and become quality members in the healthcare field. We have an exceptional group of nursing faculty that truly care about our student nurses and are dedicated to making sure we have top notch nursing graduates. Congratulations to those hard-working students.”
The registerednrusing.org website describes their methodology on how they rank the schools. They rank the top 10 nursing schools in Oregon and analyze current and historical NCLEX-RN “pass rates” of the nursing students, meaning the percentage of graduates who pass the exam, out of the 27 RN programs in the state. Programs reviewed include schools that offer an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), BSN, or Direct-Entry MSN Degree.
