Sentara Health Supports Nursing Program

The Southside Virginia Community College Foundation is excited to announce a generous contribution of $30,000 from Sentara Health to support the expansion and operation of SVCC’s nursing simulation lab located at the Estes Community Center in Chase City, VA.

This expansion is necessary due to the addition of the College’s weekend Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) program, which significantly increased the program’s student capacity. Launched in 2022, SVCC’s weekend ADN program provides educational opportunities for students who work or have other commitments during the week.

SVCC President, Dr. Quentin R. Johnson, said, “We are extremely grateful to Sentara Health for this award. Our simulation lab allows students to gain valuable hands-on skills before entering the workforce, so we are excited to see our lab and nursing program continue to grow.”

This contribution from Sentara reinforces their shared commitment to creating healthier communities through partnerships with organizations and individuals.
