Oct 16, 2023

Lincoln Trail College’s 2023 nursing class achieved a 100% RN pass rate for the National Council Licensure Exam. The Associate Degree Nursing program is designed to prepare students to take the NCLEX-RN exam to achieve licensure as a registered nurse. 
“Achieving a 100% RN pass rate is a significant accomplishment for both the program and our students and community we serve,” said Angie Williams, LTC’s Department Head of Nursing and Associate Professor. “It reflects the program's dedication to producing highly competent/confident nurses and demonstrates our commitment to students' success.”
Williams says that in order to make sure students are successful, the program employs a rigorous curriculum, hands-on clinical training, and individualized support. “Continuous assessment and feedback are crucial for improvement.”
She says that the achievement speaks volumes about the nursing programs’ quality. “I t signifies that it effectively equips students with the knowledge and skills needed for the nursing profession.”
Lincoln Trail College has a pair of nursing information sessions this fall where people can learn more about how they can join the program. The first is October 30 from 3-4 p.m. and the second is November 28 from 9-10 a.m. Williams says people can also visit to learn about the admission process for the nursing program and view its curriculum. She says people can also contact LTC’s Nursing Program Advisor Kyrah Buchanan at 618-544-8657 to learn more about the program.
