According to the website registered nursing. org, “selecting the best nursing school in Virginia can be difficult.” Southside Virginia Community College (SVCC) is ranked fourth in Virginia behind Bon Secours Memorial College of Nursing, Radford University and Stratford University in a recent report on this nursing website.

Programs reviewed included graduates from SVCC where students are given five core values throughout the education process including patient-centered care, professional identity, nursing judgement, collaboration, and safe and effective care. These values are what make the graduates an exceptional addition to the nursing field.

Dr. Michelle Edmonds, Dean of Nursing, says “We have world-class faculty and support services to help our students succeed. Our progressive model of interactive student learning pushes students to excel, and our students have a passion for nursing and excellence that we support.”
