Jane McAteer will be retiring at the end of June after a 31-year career with CSM. Jane started at CSM as a nursing faculty member in 1987. She became the Director of the Nursing program in 2003, and since then, has led the program with a steady hand for the last 15 years. CSM’s nursing program has a higher National Council Licensure Exam (Nclex) pass rate than many 4-year university nursing programs. Additionally, the Nursing program has received several full accreditation reaffirmations from the California Board of Registered Nursing. These are both indicators of the quality of CSM’s Nursing program. Jane’s contributions to the Nursing program and to CSM have been extensive and the college has benefited greatly from having Jane as an integral part of the community.
