COMPTON—Compton College is pleased to announce the names of 33 students graduating with an associate of science degree in nursing at the culmination of the spring 2020 semester, which concludes on June 12, 2020.
Congratulations to the following students who have met the requirements for an associate degree:
Compton College’s Nursing Program is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing (BRN). Compton College student nurses are supported by counseling, opportunities to further their education and referrals to jobs in the community. Upon completion of the program, graduates earn an associate degree and are ready to take the National Council Licensure Examination—Registered Nursing (NCLEX-RN). After passing the exam, graduates are eligible to seek employment as a registered nurse and work in health care fields such as intensive care, pediatrics, obstetrics, geriatrics, rehabilitation, oncology, cardiology, and occupational health. Compton College partners with area hospitals and medical centers for clinical rotations and mentoring. The majority of program graduates go on to obtain their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing, in addition to obtaining a job as a registered nurse in the area.
“There is always a need for qualified health care providers in the workforce,” said Compton College President Keith Curry. “Compton College has strong nursing and biomedical science programs and a new state-of-the-art Allied Health Building complete with a simulation lab. We hope to inspire and educate a new generation of leaders in nursing and other medical professions.”
