Key features include active learning classrooms and a dedicated critical learning center with simulation mannequins and skill labs that look and feel like a hospital or healthcare center.
THATCHER – THATCHER – Eastern Arizona College (EAC) has been ranked as having the number one LPN nursing school program in the state of Arizona by RegisteredNursing.org.
“Selecting the best nursing school in Arizona can be difficult,” the report stated. “To make the process easier, first look for a school that supports students towards licensure and beyond. A great way to measure this is through NCLEX-RN ‘pass rates.’ We have ranked the top 10 nursing schools in Arizona by analyzing current and historical NCLEX-RN ‘pass rates’, meaning the percentage of graduates who pass the exam, out of the 33 RN programs in the state. Programs reviewed include schools that offer an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), BSN, or Direct-Entry MSN Degree.”
EAC ranked first on the list with a score of 97.97. The top-five continued with EAC followed by Scottsdale Community College (97.39), Mesa Community College (96.50), University of Arizona (96.39), and Paradise Valley Community College (95.94).
