PVCC Nursing Program Expansion

nursing studentsIn partnership with the University of Virginia Medical Center and philanthropic support from an anonymous donor, PVCC has expanded its associate degree nursing program adding another 50 students each year.  This expansion is helping to meet the growing need for nursing in Central Virginia.

Currently, the associate degree nursing program accepts 100 students each fall in  August. This expansion will allow an additional 50 students to be accepted each spring in January.  The current program graduates students in May. The expansion will afford the opportunity to graduate students in December providing a constant flow of qualified nurses throughout the year.
The new cohort of 50 students will begin their courses at PVCC’s Giuseppe Center in Greene County.  The facility has two nursing skills labs that match those at PVCC’s main campus.  Two additional full-time faculty will be hired.
