SCHRIEVER, LA — Fletcher Technical Community College celebrated its summer 2019 Pinning Ceremony for Associate of Science in Nursing on Wednesday, July 24, 2019, at Fletcher’s main campus. Dr. Kristine Strickland, Chancellor, presided over the ceremony. The special guest speaker was Fletcher Adjunct Faculty, Linda Songy, MSN, RN.
“Fletcher Technical Community College is excited to recognize and celebrate the graduating Associate of Science in Nursing students,” commented Dr. Strickland. “Nursing is a noble profession – the ability to care for others, often in their greatest hour of need, is a gift. We congratulate these students on reaching this milestone and wish them much success in their future careers.”
This class was the first class to be located 100% at Fletcher’s Schriever location. Previously, prerequisites were taken at the Schriever location, but nursing courses and labs were held at the Houma Campus. All 2019 graduates have either accepted positions or are actively seeking employment. Three students have accepted jobs in emergency rooms, two at ICUs, two on surgical floors, and one at an obstetrician’s office.
Hallie Wright was presented with the program’s Award for Academic Excellence. The award goes to the student with the highest GPA in nursing courses.
Fletcher’s Associate of Science Degree in Nursing program consists of both classroom instruction and supervised clinical activities to prepare the student to take the National Council Licensing Exam for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN) given by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. The program incorporates course work identified as essential to the practice of the registered nurse. Classroom instruction includes the integration of the following material: human anatomy and physiology, microbiology, nutrition, nursing concepts, nursing care, pharmacology and clinical activities in accredited hospitals and health care facilities.
