New Nurses Celebrate With Pinning Ceremony

Salt Lake Community College's Nursing Division honored its newest class of graduating nurses with a pinning ceremony at the Taylorsville Redwood Campus.

The SLCC Nursing Program offers students a comprehensive, affordable, high quality education taught by expert health care providers with advanced degrees. Access to state-of-the-art equipment and hands-on experience in a variety of clinical settings teaches students the science of healing and the art of compassion. SLCC's experienced, knowledgeable faculty and staff share their expertise with students and prepare them to succeed in the diverse, dynamic field of nursing.

SLCC's program offers an Associate of Applied Science degree in Nursing, which enables participants to apply for and take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX). The NCLEX is needed to become a Registered Nurse. SLCC also offers an Advanced Placement Program for License Practical/Vocational Nurses returning for an AAS degree.

As part of training, the College’s Healing Arts Lab provides opportunities to practice patient care safely, using proper equipment without fear of real life consequences. This unique, state-of-the-art center specializes in interactive learning through the use of life-like scenarios, computerized manikins, and hands-on, practical learning to simulate hospital, clinical, and long-term care settings.
