Wor-Wic Community College receives grant funding for their nursing program

SALISBURY, Md.- Wor-Wic Community College is receiving state funding to help nursing students prepare for their future.

The college is receiving money from the Maryland Higher Education Commission, which is giving out over $4 million to state nursing programs. 47ABC was told the money Wor-Wic will get can will help with financial challenges the college has been facing. Officials are set to use the money to purchase a clinical judgment exam bank where faculty can learn how to write questions to better prepare students for a new type of exam starting in the Spring of 2023.

“Healthcare employers are in dire need of nurses, they’re hiring LPN’s and RN’s in our local geographic area; so we are trying our very best to put out as many graduates as we can who are successful on the licensure exam,” Brenda Mister, the Department Head For Wor-Wic Nursing, said.

Wor-Wic said they plan to use the same model of testing questions in different class settings.
