When Lori Tetterton (BSN, RN), decided she wanted to earn an associate degree in nursing, she was impressed with Cabarrus College's reputation for providing students personal attention, and the high pass rates graduates had on certification exams. Upon graduating in 1995, Lori began her career at CMC-NorthEast. "My degree provided a solid foundation in clinical knowledge and skills, helping me in my initial job in the coronary unit, and then in my transition to the Emergency Department, where I was promoted to relief charge nurse, and subsequently to day shift charge nurse." She now works for the nurse resource team in Nursing Administration.
Working as an RN for several years, it became evident that she would need a BSN degree to continue to advance in her career. Aware that Cabarrus College had a strong RN-BSN completion program that was transitioning to online instruction, she wanted to be a part of it. "The program is very nurse friendly and gave me the opportunity to keep a good work/life balance." Enrolling in the RN-BSN program in 2007, Lori recently graduated with honors. "This degree helped me to be a more well-rounded nurse. I am now more professionally prepared for a management level position." She plans to continue her education, pursuing a master degree in health administration.
"The great thing about Cabarrus College is that faculty and staff are easily accessible in person, by phone, online chat, or email. The immediate feedback I got was very important," Lori says.
