Twelve students from Stanly Community College (SCC) recently completed their Nursing LPN to ADN degrees (Annie Ruth Kelley Associate Degree Nursing).

Graduates of the program took the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN), which is required to practice as a Registered Nurse, and all 12 passed on their first attempt. Additionally, all 12 graduates are now employed throughout the region as Registered Nurses.

SCC’s nursing program is named in honor of Annie Ruth Kelley, the first chairperson of the college board of trustees and the first woman to chair a community college board in North Carolina.

Kelley served with distinction for 28 years as a college trustee.

Employment opportunities for graduates include hospitals, long-term care facilities, clinics, physicians’ offices, industry, and community agencies. SCC’s nursing program is approved by the North Carolina Board of Nursing and holds accreditation status from the National League for Nursing Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation.
