OTC student named Outstanding Nursing Student by Missouri League for Nursing

Rebecca Coffey, a student in the Associate of Science in Nursing (ASN) program at Ozarks Technical Community College, has been honored by the Missouri League for Nursing as an Outstanding Nursing Student.  The award includes a one-year membership in the League, a not-for-profit organization designed to support nurses and other health care providers throughout the state.

“Rebecca is an outstanding student who excels academically, exhibits exceptional leadership skills, and demonstrates the professional nursing skills desired of a future Registered Nurse,” said Sherry Taylor, director of the College’s ASN program and the instructor who nominated Coffey for the award.

Coffey, who lives in Republic, will graduate from Ozarks Technical Community College this May.  She currently works in pediatrics through CoxHealth in Springfield, and intends to continue working in the CoxHealth system after graduation.

The ASN program at OTC is designed as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) to Registered Nurse (RN) program that permits the qualifying LPN to complete the RN nursing courses in 36 weeks.  Graduates are eligible to apply to take the exam to become licensed as a Registered Nurse.
