Achievers & Accolades

Robeson Community College’s Nurse Aide Program achieves 100 percent pass rate

By Staff Report, posted 2 months ago

Students at Robeson Community College are continuing to excel in the field of nursing. Recently, students who completed the Nurse Aide program received a 100 percent pass rate on the NA certification.

“[A] 100 percent pass rate means we are sending high-quality Nurse Aide’s into the workforce and other healthcare programs,” Terri Oxendine, the program director, stated in a press release. “Receiving this accolade is a huge accomplishment for us. We are extremely proud of our instructors and students for this achievement.”

Oxendine says that she hopes to maintain the high bar that has been set.

“Our goals for this program are to maintain a 100 percent pass rate with our courses and help reduce the strain on the healthcare field due to the shortage of qualified professionals,” continued Oxendine in a press release.

The program is offered in two formats – through short-term training offered at the COMTech location in Pembroke and as a curriculum program on the main campus in Lumberton.

Completion of the nurse aide program gives students who aspire to continue their education an advantage as they apply for admission into the associate degree or practical nursing programs, as well as other health programs offered at the college such as sonography, emergency medical science, respiratory therapy, radiography, or surgical technology. The earned credential signifies the student’s ability to understand nursing concepts and apply them in a real-life setting as a certified nurse aide.
