Whatcom’s nursing graduates eclipse national licensing pass rate

Students who complete the nursing program at Whatcom Community College earn an Associate in Science degree in Nursing (AS-Nursing) and are then eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses (RNs).

Graduates of Whatcom Community College’s nursing program consistently pass the NCLEX at rates far above the national average. This includes a 100% pass rate for the each of the past five graduating cohorts! These stellar results are a reflection of the academic rigor of the program curriculum, the caliber of the faculty members, and the commitment of the students.

WCC's nursing program is dedicated to fostering and nurturing the caring, compassion, critical thinking, problem solving, and lifelong learning skills needed by leaders in professional nursing. Students who complete the nursing program at WCC receive an Associate in Science degree in Nursing (AS-Nursing).

International Student Health Mentor Project

Whatcom’s Student Nurses of Whatcom (S.N.O.W.) club has been working on a project with International Programs in which second year nursing students are paired with international students to help the latter learn how to navigate the health resources available to them in the community and, through quarterly workshops, develop good health and nutrition habits and stress-coping mechanisms, among other skills that are particularly helpful while living abroad.
