CSU Stanislaus Nursing Program Highly Ranked Among Western Schools


California State University, Stanislaus was recently ranked 26th out of 442 nursing schools in “America’s Best Nursing School – West Region” list published by NurseJournal.org.

To determine the rankings, 20 metrics were grouped into categories that examine the quality, affordability, convenience, satisfaction, and value of each program.

“We believe that a good nursing school provides a quality education at a reasonable cost and offers education options that make it easier for today’s busy students to attend,” NurseJournal.org states on its website.

The nursing program at CSU Stanislaus, which is housed in the recently renovated Science 1 building, benefits from a high-tech simulation lab that boosts the University’s ability to educate future nurses. Nearly all nursing graduates from CSU Stanislaus find jobs within the six-county region that the University serves.

“I was thrilled to learn that we were ranked in the top 5 percent of nursing schools in the western states,” said Debra Tavernier, director of the School of Nursing. “We strive for excellence and we are proud of our high retention and completion rates.”

According to Tavernier, students who are admitted to the nursing program at CSU Stanislaus are hardworking and committed. The program’s small size allows faculty members to identify and assist struggling students early on. As a result, more than 94 percent of students who complete the program pass the national nursing examination on the first try.

“The work that we do in the School of Nursing is recognized by our community partners, who often comment that our graduates are ready to work on their first day,” Tavernier said. “They also praise our students’ ability to think critically, a highly prized skill in nursing.”

    I wish the second degree nursing program was at the Turlock campus and not in Stockton.

    It's ridiculous that Turlock students have to go to nasty, dangerous Stockton. Not just for the nursing program, but for other programs too. Programs are deceptive when they don't make it clear up front (like in the program brochures or when students ask for more info) that commuting from Turlock to Stockton is part of the package. If I had known, I would have picked another uni.

Real estate agency involves dealing with properties either for selling or purchasing. When a client comes to a real estate agency to sell a property, it is the estate agent's job to find a buyer. If the agent finds a buyer and closes the deal at a good price for both parties, the estate agent gets a 1% commission from both buyer and seller. This is how real estate agencies work, and estate agents earn."

  • dans on How to choose the right weight loss clinic? "A reputable weight loss clinic should preferably include counseling while being overseen by a doctor or other qualified medical expert. However, some weight-loss facilities allow clients to quickly obtain weight-loss medications and leave without providing a thorough medical history or seeking a physician's opinion. You should stay away from these types of locations because they're dangerous and probably won't result in long-term weight loss. Find a facility that focuses on the behavioral treatment or lifestyle counseling instead. They can provide you with the tools you need to make healthy decisions and advice on how to fit exercise into your daily schedule. Some of these tactics include keeping track of your meals and keeping a weekly workout log."
