Batesville students part of class

The Northwest Mississippi Community College School of Health Sciences nursing students had a 100 percent passing on the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) from both the Senatobia and Oxford campuses.

The NCLEX is a complex test that challenges students to use the knowledge they’ve been learning throughout their program. It tests their knowledge from a variety of nursing disciplines to make sure they are adequately prepared for a myriad of issues that face the medical field today.

Everyone who completed in this cohort graduated from the Practical Nursing Program in July of 2023.

“Healthcare is not for everyone,” said Betty Ginn, Northwest’s Practical Nursing program director in the School of Health Sciences. “A person must be compassionate and caring. If a student has both of those qualities, they can learn anything they set their minds to. I am proud of the students for completing the program, passing the NCLEX exam, and for impacting the lives of others every day. In addition, I am very proud of my faculty for everything each of them puts into a cohort to ensure their success.”
