MACC Holds ADN Pinning Ceremony
The Moberly Area Community College Associate Degree Nursing Pinning Ceremony was held on May 15, 2015, at the MACC Auditorium. Administrators presented pins to 30 nursing graduates.
The ADN program is an intensive, two-year commitment. MACC has agreements with area hospitals and clinics that allow ADN students to work alongside practicing nurses for 16 hours each week during the semester. Graduates are eligible to sit for national licensing exams and, upon passing, are qualified as Registered Nurses. The exam pass rate for MACC graduates is consistently over 90%.
