APSU’s nursing program is currently boasting a 100 percent passing rate, indicating the program’s mastery of student training and leadership.


“We believe that we have this high pass rate because our team of faculty has developed an in-depth, detailed curriculum that assures that specific program and student learning outcomes are achieved consistently with each class,” said Patty Orr, associate professor and director of student nursing.

Orr has further clarified a total of 412 students are currently enrolled in the nursing program for the Fall 2012 semester.

“The curriculum is clearly laid out in a pathway for the student,” Orr said. “The same pathway takes all nursing students from the start of the program to graduation and the passing of the state boards.”
