  • Every single one of the members of the 39th graduating class of the Licensed Practical Nursing Program at the Waynesville Career Center passed the state licensing examine – a rare feat.
    The students graduated in July 2013 and sat for the Missouri State Board of Nursing Exam to become licensed practical nurses and the results are in: 100 percent passed the NCLEX test.
    "To the best of my knowledge, this is the first time this has ever occurred in the history of the program," says Shelly Wong, the program's director. "We are always proud of our students and the instructors we have, but we are even more so this year because of the perfect score. A 100 percent pass rate is a very rare occurrence at nursing schools across the country."
    This year, the WCC program will graduate its 40th class. To honor this milestone, the WCC will host an all-school nursing reunion this spring.
    "Providing nurses who are well-trained and care about their patients well-being continues to be important and relevant to our community and nation," Wong says. "We have wonderful students and look forward to bringing them all together this spring."
    Throughout its 40 years, the school's students have worked throughout the United States, and many of the LPNs and RNs at Fort Leonard started at the WCC.
