Bethune-Cookman University Nursing Students Honored During Pinning Ceremony
After a rigorous eight-week boot-camp style review course and additional studies to prepare for successful completion of the School of Nursing program, Brandy Andrews, Alexus Bennett, Adisle Garcia, Branden Lewis, Rakaya Neely and Pia West have successfully passed the National Council Licensure Examination-RN (NCLEX-RN) to become registered nurses.
In March, the students completed an ATI assessment course where they achieved a prediction score of 99% for success on the NCLEX-RN. ATI exams are required for progression in each course in the nursing curriculum, as well as for graduation from the nursing program. The exams are designed to assess student knowledge, understanding, and grasp of essential nursing core concepts. The exam is a tool used in the prediction of student success in the program and on the National Council Licensure Exam-RN (NCLEX-RN).
The students participated in a pinning ceremony in their honor, Thursday, May 9, 2019, in the Gertrude Heyn Memorial Chapel. The ceremony is a symbolic welcoming of newly-graduated nursing students into the nursing profession marking the transition from student to professional nurse.
