Ogeechee Tech Nursing Students
Perform Well on Licensing Boards

The most recent Georgia State Board of Licensed Practical Nursing examination results for Ogeechee Technical College were released recently.  The pass rate for Ogeechee Tech nursing students taking the examination for the first time was 95.24%, surpassing the state average of 93.05%.  Ogeechee Tech nursing students have faired well on the exam over the past several years, with as much as 100% pass rate at times.  The most recent exam period saw 21 students challenge the state practical nursing boards.

“The results of this examination are an indication of the strong level of instruction our nursing students receive” commented Dr. Jessie Strickland, Vice President for Academic Affairs.  “The quality of these students, and their success on this state board examination, will translate into capable nurses who any institution should be happy to hire,” Dr. Strickland concluded.
 
In addition to Ogeechee Tech’s nursing program, a variety of health related programs are offered at the college.  “Our health programs represent the largest area of study at Ogeechee Tech.  We are always proud of student achievement, and this pass rate for our nursing students is confirmation of the high quality of students and the strong level of instruction that we have here,” stated Dr. Dawn Cartee, President of Ogeechee Technical College.  “We congratulate these students, and wish them well as they take what they have learned here and apply it to helping patients,” concluded Dr. Cartee.
