l)TH Starr U rilcr
Nursing programs at three schools in the University of North
Carolina system will continue for at least another year, the UNC
Board of Governors decided at a meeting in Asheville Friday.
The schools A&T State University in Greensboro,
Winston-Salem State University and North Carolina Central
University in Durham were told by the board in 1977 that
two-thirds of their nursing students must pass the state nursing
exam. University officials said test scores had improved consi
derably since then, and earlier this month the board's planning
committee recommended that the board not end the programs.
UNC President William C. Friday said Sunday he was pleased
with the board's decision.
1 really think Winston-Salem and NCCU have made sub
stantial gains," he said. This year, 54 percent of NCCU grad
uates and 64 percent of WSSU graduates passed the exam on the
About 28 percent of A&T students passed the exam, but be
cause the school has new deans of nursing and academic affairs
and a new chancellor this year, "the least we could do is give
them a chance" to improve, Friday said.
The board decided each school must have a 60 percent passing
rate next year and a 70 percent passing rate in 1984.
UNC Vice President for Academic Affairs Raymond Dawson
said Sunday that the passing rate had been adopted from State
Board of Nursing standards. He said any school not meeting the
standards would be removed from the Nursing Board's ap
proved list of schools.
Students wanting to take the nursing exam would not be
allowed to take it if their school had not met the requirements
and had been removed from the approved list, Dawson said.
Friday said he was counting on the new administrative team
to pull up scores at A&T. He said he could not predict how the
board would vote next year if scores were slightly below the
figures it had set. "The idea is to see if we can make the thing
work," he said. 1 .
BOG Chairman John Jordan said Sunday that NCCU and
WSSU scores were "pretty close" to the goal the board set
earlier and that the new administrators at A&T would bring that
school's scores up. "We've invested an awful lot in these
schools," he said.
Jordan said the board would continue to monitor the schools'
progress through periodic reports about the programs over the
Board member E. B. Turner, who argued at the meeting to
continue the programs, said new A&T Chancellor Edward Fort
and the new academic affairs and nursing deans should be given
a chance to improve the program.
"The trouble with ... A&T was the old chancellor," Turner
"We discovered some problems in administration," he said.
"They have corrected some of their problems, and it looks like
it deserves another year."
Turner said he believed Fort would be able to "turn the thing
. "The new chancellor has a strong commitment, and he's been
given full backing by the board to do what's necessary," he.
said. "If there's a failure, he knows he's going to be the victim."
TDuiinm rt Mw M mo 1 C G C races
Five of Tuesday's six Campus
Governing Council district races were
decided by nine votes or less, with one
seat decided on a 1-0 vote.
The election returns, which were
certified late Thursday, showed a light
voter turnout in all but one CGC elec
tion; the District 1 race between law
students Andy Haikov and Ray War
ren. Harkov defeated Warren 164-23.
In other graduate student races,
Barnett Berry, an education student,
was elected to represent District 2, 9-0;
Dianne Wall, a nursing student, was
elected in District 6, 12-9; and Jan.
Lowery of Raleigh received four votes
. with three other students receiving one
vote each in District 7.
In the undergraduate races, junior
Kathy Stetson was elected in District
20, 1-0; and sophomore William
Porter won in District 22, 7-2.
Stetson said she was originally told
she would be in a runoff race with
three other students, but found out
Thursday night that she had won.
"When my roommates told me I
had won, I was really excited," she
said. "I was going to go ahead, make
posters and run in the runoff
election." .- . x
Wall said she was approached by
the treasurer of the Graduate Student
Action Body six days before the elec
tion about running.
"I decided to run, and went to nurs
ing classes and asked' students to go
and vote for me," she said, adding
that turnout in her district was small
because of low student interest.
"That's par for the course most
grad students don't know what the in
itials CGC stand for," she said.
Wall said she expected a runoff
election in her district too. But other
people who had received write-in votes
took their names Out of consideration.
Elections Board Chairman Mark
Jacobson said the low turnout was not
