SCC Nursing On Top Again

[Clinton, N.C.] – The news just keeps getting better for the Nursing departments at Sampson Community College. Associate Degree Nursing students participated in the Eighth Annual Syringe Bowl and went home champions.

The Syringe Bowl is a quiz bowl event centered around preparing second level Associate Degree Nursing students for their national licensure examination.  The students traveled to Robeson Community College in Lumberton to compete against other ADN students across the region.

Three SCC teams were randomly seeded in official tournament brackets with their peers across the state. SCC was crowned the champions after seven preliminary rounds and one final elimination round.  ADN and PN nursing faculty and students supported the event.


Dr. Veronica Stevens, division Chair of Health Programs at SCC is too proud to contain her pleasure with the division. “Congratulations to our nurses again,” she says. “We are extremely proud of this phenomenal group of students and faculty. We strive to maintain an atmosphere of excellence, and when we do this great things happen.”

SCC’s nursing programs have a long history of success. Two weeks ago, Practical, a nursing advocacy organization, ranked Sampson Community College’s LPN program as number two in the state. The program was already considered one of the best in the state. The SCC concept-based curriculum was used as a model for LPN programs across the state aspiring to transition to a new, state mandated curriculum.
