SSC Nursing Students Score Highest at NCLEX Even

Seminole State College nursing students recently joined peers from across the state for a night of food, comradery and preparation for the National Council Licensure Examination at Mercy Hospital of Ada. The NCLEX is an exam all nursing students must take to become a registered nurse. The students learned tips for breaking down questions and passing the exam.

During the events of the night, students were asked questions regarding their knowledge of nursing. SSC students Jolena Hardin of Holdenville, Audra Williams of Tecumseh and Sara Thompson of Allen were named the highest scoring team. Each of the three students won $200 to cover the cost of their NCLEX.

“I’m so proud of these outstanding women. They have put in the hard work it takes to become a register nurse, and it shows.” SSC Nursing Instructor Brenda Hudson said.
