Clovis Community College's nursing program gets an upgrade

Posted: Updated:

Upgrades to Clovis Community College's nursing program are raising the bar for education.

After 2 years and more than $5-million dollars, Clovis Community College has opened the doors to it's Joe and Charlyne Sisler Allied Health Center. This however is more than just a new building on campus.

The nursing program now not only has its own facilities dedicated to the program alone, but new equipment to go with it. Walk farther into the building and you'll find the Kathryn Burns Skarda, R.N. Simulation Clinic.

The funding for the simulation clinic was donated in memory of a long time nurse in Clovis.

"And I feel like Mrs. Skarda would have been very pleased and I know Mr. Skarda was very grateful to connect with us in that way. And, he did tell me to make the program first class. So, with his help we can," Becky Rowley, Clovis Community College president says.

The simulation center is filled with mannequin patients that are able to respond to students actions. Students will be using the lab in October.

We're told no other nursing program within 100 miles has the new technology like C.C.C.'s.
