Albany - - Instructors in Albany State's nursing program hope matching freshmen into the same classes and as roommates will also help them when it comes to keeping their state accreditation.

Almost three years ago, Georgia's Board of Nursing threatened to shut down ASU's program because of poor performance on state tests.

Now, instructors make test preparation a part of everyday classes and students are encouraged to study together in groups beyond regular class time.

"They made sure the students were ready and knew what the requirements were and then they taught the content and the students had to learn and they had to perform and if they didn't, they didn't pass the course," says Dr. Linda Grimsley.

Preparing the students to pass the test has helped. For the last two years, the program had a 100 % passing rate.
