All of the December 2014 BSN graduates (54) passed the NCLEX on their first try-100% pass. Congratulations to the faculty and staff for their efforts in their success.
On May 6, the faculty/staff recognized the BSN Graduating students in an “End of Semester Recognition”. This class was the most highly sought after graduating class the School of Nursing (SON) has ever had. The hospital recruiters were out in full force with increased hiring everywhere. Many of the graduates have accepted jobs in Louisville, Owensboro, Madisonville, Elizabethtown, Cincinnati, and Evansville, with only a few (7) who stated they had accepted a job in Bowling Green. Dr. Bennett, the SON Director, expects this trend to continue as students enter the program from other parts of the state and country.
Because of so many different recruiters requesting time to talk with the SON students and taking time from classes, next fall they will host a “Nurse Recruitment Fair” rather than having all the recruiters speak to the student classes individually. This event will be incorporated in the Leadership class and the students will have cover letters/resumes ready for prospective employers.
