Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Welcomes Largest First-Year Class in History

Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing - First-Year Students 2018The 2018 fall semester recently kicked off with festivities at the Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing at Beebe Healthcare with a welcome and orientation for first-year students.

The Class of 2020 consists of 43 students from all over the region.  During orientation the students got a chance to meet faculty members as well as senior students from the Class of 2019. After already completing the first month of class work and laboratory experiences, the students are now immersed in clinical rotations at the hospital and in long-term care.  The School of Nursing curriculum consists of over 1000 hours of clinical experience.  Therefore, students begin hands-on patient care within the first two months of school. 

The Margaret H. Rollins School of Nursing prides itself on a very rigorous curriculum which prepares graduates for the challenges nurses face in healthcare today.  The school continually produces successful nurses and maintains one of the highest NCLEX pass rates in the State of Delaware.  The Class of 2018 had a 96.15% NCLEX pass rate for all first-time test takers.

The faculty, staff, and hospital are all excited to begin this new academic year and to welcome these nursing students to Beebe Healthcare.
