The 2022 graduates of the Associate of Applied Science in Nursing program at the University of Arkansas at Monticello recently achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses, marking the second consecutive year that UAM’s AASN graduates achieved a 100 percent pass rate on the examination.

The graduating class includes Styvie Crocker of Monticello, Rhonda Cruise of Warren, Jerrica Easterwood of Monticello, Angela Holland of Hamburg, LaKrystal Jones of Greenville, Mississippi, Marie Porter-Harris of Monroe, Louisiana, and Felicia Thompson of Delhi, Louisiana.

“Our pass rate is a direct indication of the superb teaching from our faculty,” said Dr. Brandy Haley, dean of the UAM School of Nursing. “We hold our students to the highest quality to ensure that all of our graduates have a chance to be successful.”
