Southwest Tennessee Community College is the host institution for a review
course of the National Council Licensure Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
Sponsored by Southwest's Department of Nursing, this NCLEX-RN review
session is available to all graduates of registered nursing programs.
Sylvia Rayfield and Associates will offer the course from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m.,
May 16-18, on the Union Avenue Campus, Nursing Building, 301 Walnut.
The cost is $239 in advance or $250 at the door. Seating is limited and no
personal checks will be accepted at the door.
Southwest's Nursing Department was recently awarded the maximum
accreditation of eight-years by the National League for Nursing
Accrediting Commission. Last year, Southwest's nursing graduates did
extremely well on the NCLEX-RN. The Southwest graduates had a 100 percent
pass rate on the NCLEX-RN during the first reporting period, and a 96
percent pass rate during the second reporting period. The national average
for the NCLEX-RN was 85.7.
