SVCC Nursing Program Recognized with Excellence in Education Award

One of the highlights of the annual New Horizons conference is an awards celebration honoring faculty members who have made extraordinary contributions in and outside of the classroom. Full-time and adjunct faculty are spotlighted, along with college teams for creating innovative programs to address the needs of their communities.  

Seven Excellence in Education Awards (EIE) were conferred this year, spotlighting college teams who developed innovative programs to address community needs.

In the category of Academic Innovation, Southside Virginia Community College was recognized for its weekend Associate Degree in Nursing program, which provides an alternative schedule for those whose work and lifestyle cannot accommodate a traditional higher ed format. 

Another accomplishment was attained by SVCC's Nursing faculty and staff as the ADN program was named the best in the state by!
