More than 54 nursing programs were ranked in the state of Missouri, and East Central College landed near the top of the list in 2018!
According to RegisteredNursing.org, East Central College is ranked the tenth best nursing program in the state. The methodology used for the rankings was based on the NCLEX-RN exam, which is used by all state boards of nursing across the country to help assess a student’s competency and is required for licensure.
Dean of Nursing and Allied Health Robyn Walter believes the dedication of the nursing faculty truly makes a difference at East Central College.
“I am overwhelmed and humbled by their devotion,” she said, “and students truly feel it. It’s also important to recognize the support staff, because it is the entire student experience that promotes success.”
East Central College offers two programs leading to an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing. This program prepares students to become registered nurses. The main campus in Union, as well as the Rolla site, offers a complete pre-licensure program (generic) for those interested in becoming a registered nurse. A LPN to RN Bridge program is also available at the Rolla location for LPNs interested in becoming registered nurses.
