County of Applicant:

This award provides funding to University of Mount Olive (UMO) to help equip a nursing simulation lab that is part of UMO’s new BSN program that will launch in fall 2022. At capacity, the program will train 100 registered nurses each year for positions in Wayne County and the surrounding area. The nursing simulation laboratory is vital to training future nurses and meeting the high-tech demands of today’s healthcare market. The simulation lab will serve as a clinical site for up to 40 students at a time. Mount Olive plans to serve 50 students in a daytime program and 50 students in an evening program, a fast-track program that targets commuter students. Most evening students will live locally and who will likely remain in the area after graduation. This new prelicensure BSN program complements UMO’s existing nursing programs—an MSN program and a program for existing CNAs and practical nurses to earn a BSN. UMO anticipates 95% of graduates of the program will sit for and pass the NCLEX-RN at the first testing and 100% of graduates will be employed as RNs in the local area. Golden LEAF funds will be used purchase equipment for the simulation lab.
