LCCC Instructor Elected President of Ohio League for Nursing

{mosimage}Hope Moon, associate professor and director of the Associate Degree Nursing program at Lorain County Community College was recently elected President of the Ohio League for Nursing.

Moon, entering her 13th year of teaching at LCCC, said her election is the capstone on top of 30 years in the nursing field. “I grew up down the street from St. Joseph’s Hospital in Lorain in a neighborhood full of nurses, so I was destined to become a nurse,” she remarked.

 

The Ohio League for Nursing (OLN) is a non-profit professional organization and advocacy group whose primary concern is the advancement of high-quality nursing education in the state of Ohio.

Moon will serve as President-Elect for two years before assuming full-time presidential duties for another two years in office. She said that having an LCCC faculty member on the OLN executive board will create excellent opportunities both for the College and the nursing community at large, as LCCC’s nursing program is one of the three largest in the state.

LCCC’s nursing students have an 94 percent first-time passing rate on the National Council Licensure Examination, 11 percent above the national average. “First-time employers consistently report that LCCC graduates transition much more quickly than other recent graduates to independent nursing roles,” Moon said.
