Giving Back: The Value Of A Nursing Education At Capital

Capital Community College’s Nursing Program has educated a generation of nurses since its founding in 1974, preparing thousands for RN licensure and the health care profession.

The associate degree in nursing program is held in high regard for the caring and competence of its graduates who are integral to the delivery of health care in the region, the State of Connecticut and beyond.

Capital nurses are on the front lines of the COVID pandemic, working in local public health departments, as staff nurses, circulating nurses in the operating room, nurse managers, case managers, as well as the pharmaceutical industry. Graduates go on to advance their education at the baccalaureate and graduate levels. Not surprisingly many of our talented and dedicated faculty were once Capital Community College nursing students themselves. You're invited to hear Jonathan Nyez ('06) share his story of entering the nursing profession and now teaching others at his alma mater.

One of the largest programs of its kind in New England and the first established at community colleges in Connecticut, Capital's nationally accredited nursing program is known for serving individuals from diverse ethnic and economic backgrounds reflecting the communities served by the College in the central Connecticut region.

Advancements in medical care and patient care, coupled with the ever-growing opportunities and need for nurses, are why the Nursing Program Fund will make a difference.

Our vision at Capital Community College is to maintain a premier nursing program with state-of- the-art equipment that requires financial support outside of operating budgets and tuition. Your donations can help make this dream a reality.

Your investment will help CCC advance its vision to be the premier college of choice and the gold standard by which all nursing programs in the region are measured.

Your gift will be greatly appreciated.
