The nursing program at Chattahoochee Technical College has been ranked third best in Georgia among all of the state’s colleges, universities and technical colleges by the nursing advocacy group RegisteredNursing.org. Rankings were based on the pass rates of students taking the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN).
“The fact that we are ranked number three in the state is evidence that we strive to create a learning environment that surpasses the expectations of nursing education at the associate degree level,” said Associate Academic Dean Quetina Pittman Howell, who leads the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program at Chattahoochee Tech. “I have an amazing team, and we work very well together.”
“Our students typically find employment throughout the metropolitan Atlanta area,” said Howell. “You can find Chattahoochee Tech ASN graduates at WellStar Health System, Grady Health System, Piedmont Healthcare, and Northside Hospital.”
The Chattahoochee Tech ASN program is a highly competitive, rigorous program involving classroom, laboratory and clinical activities, according to Chattahoochee Technical College President Dr. Ron Newcomb. “Approximately 35 to 40 students graduate from this program each year,” said Newcomb, “and we are confident that our outstanding instructors have successfully prepared these nursing graduates to be knowledgeable and compassionate.”
The ASN nursing program at Chattahoochee Tech has full approval by the Georgia Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. After successful completion of the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN), program graduates are granted state licensure to practice nursing as Registered Nurses.
