Here’s a second opinion that confirms the original diagnosis: Students graduating from Grand Rapids Community College’s Nursing program are perfect.

It’s the second year in a row GRCC Nursing students posted perfect pass rates on their licensure exams amid a pandemic that has required ongoing shifts in instructional modalities and modifications to the hands-on experiences necessary for nursing education.
