Parkland Nursing: A View from the Top

Hello. While most of you are on Spring Break, I am here, working to finally submit a blog post! I wanted to tell you a bit about the Nursing Program at Parkland College.

First of all, I am a 1984 graduate of Parkland. I continued school to achieve a doctorate in Nursing Practice, and I couldn’t be happier to be the head of the associate-degree nursing program at Parkland!

We have a great program, with a state board pass rate average of 93.8% for the past five years. Nationally, the 2014 pass rate was 82% and it was 84% statewide. This information is publicly available on the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (IDFPR) website for all schools.

Obtaining your registered professional nurse degree at Parkland allows you a cost-effective way to begin working as an RN as you pursue your BSN, like I did. If you are interested, please visit our website.

Happy Spring!
Dr. Diane Cousert
