(Waynesville)–For the second year in a row, students in the Practical Nursing Department at the Waynesville Career Center had a perfect 100% pass rate on the students’ first attempt on the licensed practical nursing exam offered through the Missouri Division of Professional Registration. “This is a huge accomplishment and the first time this has happened in school history,” said Dr. Traci Pattison, director of the career center. “We are very proud of the work this department continues to do to prepare our future nurses.” During part of the school year, the 25 LPNs participated in virtual learning, due to COVID-19. “What makes this year’s accomplishment even more impressive is that our nursing students accomplished this amidst the disruptions of a pandemic,” said Dr. Brian Henry, superintendent. “I am proud of our students, their families, and the instructors.” The practical nursing program is an adult education program offered at the Waynesville Career Center.
