Butler Community College submitted 61 new nurses into the field Thursday night as the Spring 2012 class was presented with their pins in the gymnasium at Butler of El Dorado. The graduates have completed the Associate of Applied Science Degree in Nursing and are eligible to take the Registered Nurse licensure test in the state of their choice.
Along with college accreditation, Butler’s nursing program is accredited by the Kansas State Board of Nursing and the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission. Clinical laboratory experiences are provided in health care settings in El Dorado and the Wichita metro area.
