Testing results of nursing students at Centralia College were high enough in 2016 to put the college in fourth place in the state for licensed practical nurses exam performance.
Nursing students at the college who took the national certification exam to be licensed practical nurses are among the best in the state, according to PracticalNurses.org, an online ranking of the best LPN programs in the nation.
Centralia College does not have an LPN program, but many of the students in the college’s registered nursing program take the LPN exam, according to a press release from the college.
“Our exceptional passing rate, which has been 100 percent the past few years, of our students on the LPN exam is certainly representative of the excellence of our program and faculty,” Ellen Hinderlie, nursing program director, said in the release. “We do a fantastic job in preparing our students to be excellent nurses, starting with those choosing to take the LPN exam. It translates well to our registered nursing program and our students’ high rates of success.”
