Anne Arundel Community College snagged the top spot on a recent list of Best RN Programs in Maryland by a national registered nurse organization. AACC outranked other programs in the state—such as University of Maryland School of Nursing (ranked second) and Johns Hopkins University (ranked fourth)— in pass/fail rates for the National Council Licensure Examination, which determines if it’s safe for a student to begin practice as an entry level nurse. Programs were assessed on how well they support students toward licensure and beyond. At 93.4 percent, the AACC Nursing program ranks well above the 2016 84.5 percent national average, according to the National Council of State Boards of Nursing. Beth Batturs Martin, director of Nursing and Health Care Initiatives, attributes student success to “the fabulous faculty.” “They’re experienced and they have a devotion to the students,” she said. “They really have a desire to see them succeed.” Registerednursing.org, the online resource for future and current registered nurses who did the ranking, attributes the success to AACC’s network as well. “Graduates of AACC have the benefit of a variety of clinical placements to enrich their practical skills, and a health care community that welcomes exemplary nurses to their ranks,” according to the website. Batturs Martin, who has been with the program since 1996, said the award was a pleasant surprise. The ranking included schools that offer an Associate in Nursing (ADN/ASN), BSN or Direct-Entry MSN Degree and used the past five years of data. The site analyzed 25 Maryland schools.

Restoration Ecology | Year: 2010

Protocols are now available for seed harvest, storage and germination of several mesohaline and polyhaline species; however, low seedling survival rates point to the need for an increased understanding of factors affecting seedling establishment. Depth of seed burial in sediments and initial seedling growth rates are shown to be limiting factors for photosynthetic competency of Ruppia maritima and Potamogeton perfoliatus. Seedling emergence is inversely proportional to planting depth on sediments ranging in grain size from coarse sands (850 μm) to silt (63 μm). Less than 6% of the seeds of either species emerged when buried to a depth of 3 cm in test sediments. Germination was greatest for seeds placed on the surface of sediments; however, these seedlings were subject to displacement because of the weak and fragile roots produced during early growth. Fine sediments may be more favorable for R. maritima seedling establishment, because seedling emergence and height decreased with increasing sediment grain size. Potamogeton perfoliatus seedlings seem to be more tolerant of a wider range of sediment grain sizes than R. maritima as indicated by the lack of an effect of sediment grain size on P. perfoliatus seed emergence, seedling height, and biomass. Increasing nutrients stimulated seedlings of both species; however, even at the highest concentrations tested, growth, as determined by shoot elongation and leaf and root formation, slowed within 7-10 days. This suggests factors other than mineral nutrients and light limit growth or that growth shifts from aboveground biomass production to belowground vegetative spread. © 2010 Society for Ecological Restoration International.

The Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute at Anne Arundel Community College was named one of the 50 Best Culinary Schools in the U.S. by Best Choice Schools. At number 14 on the 2016 list, HCAT met and exceeded high standards and performance metrics on the nationwide list. “This is an incredible validation of the academic excellence at HCAT in curriculum, faculty, facilities and internship opportunities,” said Mary Ellen Mason, program director. “These nationally recognized programs offer the best in culinary education.” The full list of online rankings, available at BestChoiceSchools.com, states that AACC students “learn from the best in the business.” The school outranked more well-known programs, such as Johnson and Wales University. The site also said faculty and staff are trained in the latest methods and techniques, while all degree options include a practicum experience. The associate of applied science degree with the culinary option is accredited by the American Culinary Federation, and the Hospitality Business Management program is accredited by the Accrediting Commission for Programs in Hospitality Administration. Graduates are prepared to work as bakers, cooks, manager-in-training and pastry cooks. Bureau of Labor Statistics cites the demand for chefs and head cooks will grow 9% faster than most industries in the country. Criteria for selection included that the school provide hands-on experience, internships/externships, student-operated restaurants, modern facilities and a solid reputation in the industry. “HCAT works hard every day to make our students’ dreams and passions come true, and we offer our high quality programming at an affordable community college cost,” Mason said.

The equation of motion for a quadratically damped oscillator, where the damping is proportional to the square of the velocity, is a non-linear second-order differential equation. Non-linear equations of motion such as this are seldom addressed in intermediate instruction in classical dynamics; this one is problematic because it cannot be solved in terms of elementary functions. Like all second-order ordinary differential equations, it has a corresponding first-order partial differential equation, whose independent solutions constitute the constants of the motion. These constants readily provide an approximate solution correct to first order in the damping constant. They also reveal that the quadratically damped oscillator is never critically damped or overdamped, and that to first order in the damping constant the oscillation frequency is identical to the natural frequency. The technique described has close ties to standard tools such as integral curves in phase space and phase portraits. © 2012 American Association of Physics Teachers.

The project is an engineering scholarship program (ESP Scholars) to increase the access and diversity in the engineering and engineering technology fields. It will provide scholarships to at least 75 talented and financially needy students with at least 50% from underrepresented groups (minorities and women). The project will increase the retention of ESP Scholars and enhance placement of graduating ESP students in the STEM workforce or enrollment in a four-year engineering degree program by improving student academic and support services. The scholarship program supports the development of student intellectual capacity. It incorporates best practices for retention of underrepresented students and provides continuing opportunities for students to build a cohort and explore common academic and social interests throughout their college experience. The project team will study similarities and differences between ESP students and non-ESP students. The broader impact of the project will be demonstrated by an increase in the number of students from underrepresented groups who major in engineering disciplines and receive associate degrees. Students will be supported by a diverse team of faculty, staff and industry representatives. The project will also demonstrate that stronger connections between two and four-year colleges will help diversify the pool of engineers.
