Carl Albert State College (CASC) Registered Nursing (RN) programs at Poteau and Sallisaw have been ranked in the Top 20 RN programs in Oklahoma by RegisteredNursing.org.
The RN program housed at the Poteau campus was ranked #3, and the Sallisaw RN program was ranked #5.
The nursing programs were assessed on several factors representing how well a program supports students towards licensure and beyond. Among other criteria, the organization looked at the percentage of graduates who pass the NCLEX-NR exam (past and present), and chose the top 20 out of 46 programs reviewed.
CASC Director of Nursing Abbie Bailey said, “It is always appreciated when organizations recognize the success of the CASC nursing programs. We are proud of our program and the success of our students.”
She continued, “To place both our sites in the Top 5 of this list is a great reflection on the quality of our programs.”
