Since it’s founding, Sierra College’s nursing program has been the gold standard for other schools. Nancy James knows it’s her job to sustain that proud tradition. James is Sierra College’s Associate Dean of Nursing, and she works tirelessly to ensure Sierra’s 100 percent board pass rate and the expansion of the nursing program. James has been instrumental in creating a joint curriculum with CSU Sacramento for an accelerated bachelor’s program to help future nurses advance even faster in their careers. She was also on the frontlines of helping get Sierra College’s state-of-the-art nursing village back on campus. The nursing village provides the ideal learning environment for the nursing students, with special skill labs, classrooms and the most up-to-date equipment.

This most recent year we had 100% pass rate because we start them from the first semester practicing board type questions, making them critically think.
