Welcome to Current Students


WELCOME

Dear Nursing Student,

You have chosen to embark on a journey into the profession of Nursing through your entering the Clinton Community College Nursing Program. Our program is a quality program of study and has attained and maintained accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN) since1987.



Entering the discipline of Nursing is one of the most important decisions you have made recently. You are on the road to becoming a Registered Nurse (RN). Although it is hard to describe the challenges that lie ahead, aside from hard work, your journey will be filled with new friendships, exciting experiences, personal rewards and major accomplishments. To help you along this road is an experienced and caring faculty.



A student registered in the Department of Nursing assumes obligations and responsibilities as does any student in the College. Your experience as a nursing student may be quite different from other college experiences. In addition, by virtue of the Department's primary purpose, which is to prepare qualified graduates to enter the state licensing examination for professional nursing, the student in nursing is expected to meet specific behaviors in order to be retained, promoted and graduated.


If you have any questions or concerns, contact any faculty member in the department. If, throughout the year, problems or concerns arise, please do not hesitate to contact one of us. Most times, problems are easier to deal with when you talk with the right people early.


From all the faculty and staff, a sincere and hearty welcome........We hold you in our highest intention for having a successful journey. Good luck and enjoy.
