Program Outcomes - Certification and Completion

The mission of the Roane State Community College nursing program is to advance the overall purpose and mission of the college by providing a career-oriented educational program in nursing which is responsive to community need, responsible to individuals and accountable to the constituencies which it serves.

The student who successfully completes the Roane State Community College nursing program will demonstrate eight core components of nursing practice. These relate to professional behaviors, communication, assessment, clinical decision making, caring interventions, teaching and learning, collaboration and managing care.

The expected levels of achievement for program outcomes relating to graduation rate, licensure pass rate and job placement are as follows:

  1. Licensure exam pass rate is ≥ 85% or at or above the national mean, whichever is higher.
  2. Graduation rate of at least 60% of the students entering the nursing program in the fall will complete the program within 150% of the standard curriculum length.
  3. Job placement rate is at least 95% of those graduates who respond to the survey and are seeking employment will be employed within a year of graduation.
