FY13 SVCC R.N. Ready New Look Project

This program was geared toward students in the SVCC Nursing program who were at least one of the following: low socioeconomic, single parent or ESL. These students all failed one Nursing class which would set them back and put them at risk of failing the NCLEX Nursing Exam. We chose the Virtual ATI program to reduce barriers and to raise our retention and graduation rates. Seven students were in need of the program and New Look allowed us to purchase 5 of the product. I worked with the Sauk Valley Community College Foundation in order to accommodate the remaining two students. With the Foundation’s help all seven students were given the program. Due to the fact that many of our students are economically disadvantaged we picked up the full cost of the program which is $275.00 each. Students were invited to a luncheon to get their product. To date five of the seven students who were given the program have taken and passed the NCLEX exam.
