Nurse aide program at RCC graduates seven

Seven students have recently completed the course requirements for Rappahannock Community College’s Warsaw Campus nurse aide program. Clinical facilities for the class were graciously provided by The Orchard, a nearby senior living community. Seated, left to right: Pamela Coleman of Essex County, and LaTasha Lucas of Colonial Beach. Standing, left to right: Blondell Rosier, Colonial Beach; Micole Dabney, Sherika Turner, and Shannon Morris, all of Essex County; Stephanie Dirolf, Colonial Beach; and RCC nurse aide instructor Susie Lewis.

Several of these students received funding from the Workforce Investment Act Adult Program (supplied by the Area XIII Bay Consortium Workforce Investment Board through the Virginia Employment Commission), the Job Assistance Center in Shackelfords, Richmond County’s Social Services department, and the Virginia Community College System’s On-ramp Program (coordinated through RCC’s Workforce Development Office).
