Sampson Community College’s Licensed Practical Nursing program held its annual pinning ceremony this week. This comes on the heels of a string of successes the nursing programs at SCC have continued to enjoy.

Practical Nursing.org ranked Sampson Community College’s LPN program as number two in the state this year. The LPN program is led by an excellent instructional team and its SCC concept-based curriculum was used as a model for LPN programs across the state aspiring to transition to a new, state mandated curriculum.

The demand for nurses continues to increase across the nation. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, by 2024 LPN jobs will increase by 18 percent in North Carolina. SCC’s Practical Nursing program consistently exceeds benchmarks set by the faculty for retention and job placement rates.
