NC A&T Nursing: Another First For EzGreensboro.com

Still doubting the validity of what you read here at EzGreensboro.com? Well how about this? Today the News & Record is reporting:

"The university system in April suspended new admissions to the School of Nursing’s traditional bachelor’s degree program because A&T’s passing rates on the national licensing exam remained below UNC system standards.

The system’s Board of Governors on Friday said it will lift the suspension if A&T’s passing rate reaches 85 percent — or will close the program if scores don’t reach that mark within three years."

But in our Sunday, November 30th article titled, Union Square Developers Want Out-- At A Profit, this could mean bad news for Downtown Greensboro's proposed Union Square Campus:

"NC A&T might not even have a nursing program in a couple of years as they've twice had to get special dispensation to continue probation in the last ten years. The last major collaborative graduate program, Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanoengineering (JSNN) was supposed to be a 24 hour/ 7 day per week operation at this point with 160-180 full time students and spin off companies at the current campus and downtown. The coming Spring semester nanoscience program only has 10 students registered in it's first year labs.

Nothing they've promised us has come to be."

You see, when your team includes people inside the halls of government, institutions of higher learning and corporations that manipulate and control our city you get first hand what's going on before even the local media knows it happened. Thus the reason I say at EzGreensboro.com our team doesn't blog the news, we make the news.
