Regents review update on success of students

South Plains College students who major in health occupations have  high completion and placement rates.

Robin Satterwhite, vice president for Academic Affairs, told regents Thursday that a study showed that students in such areas as nursing, physical therapy assistant and surgical technician fare well in completing course work and then getting jobs, Satterwhite noted that students graduating with an associateís degree in nursing or as licensed vocational nurses have had a 100 percent placement rate in the last few years.

‘I’m very proud of our placement rates,’ he said.

Satterwhite said SPC has articulation agreements with such schools West Texas State University and Texas Tech University on the transfer of credits.

He said SPC employees work carefully with students on what courses will transfer.

Regent Pete Pettiet asked if the college has an agreement with Angelo State University.

Satterwhite said it does not.
