Kudos to the Grossmont College nursing program!

The Grossmont College Nursing Program hosted another successful visit from its accrediting body, the California Board of Registered Nursing. For two days this week, the Nursing Program hosted three site visitors who compared the program to the regulatory body's rigorous set of standards -- and found Grossmont College's program met 100 percent of the criteria.

"My congratulations to the Grossmont College Nursing Program," said Grossmont College President Nabil Abu-Ghazaleh. "To complete the accreditation process successfully is admirable. To receive rave reviews and not a single recommendation for improvement is an endorsement of the excellence in academics and student-centeredness that this program exhibits."

Highlights from the visit include:
  • Outstanding simulation lab with up-to-date, comprehensive equipment
  • Strong partnerships within the community
  • Collegial faculty who are student-centered and believe in facilitating excellence in education
  • Structured curriculum
  • Stduents who are professional and articulate, and representative of the best this program has to offer.
The Grossmont College Nursing Program offers an associate's degree in nursing (ADN), an LVN-to-RN program for licensed vocational nurses, and, in conjunction with Pt. Loma Nazarene University, a bachelor's of science in nursing (BSN) program with classes offered on the Grossmont College campus.
