Ten graduate from RCCs Glenns Campus nurse aide program

Ten students have recently completed the course requirements for the nurse aide program at Rappahannock Community College’s Glenns Campus. Clinical facilities were graciously provided by Riverside Convalescent Center in Saluda. Pictured, left to right: RCC nurse aide instructor Susie Lewis; students Amanda Byrd of Middlesex County; Kathryn Lynn, King and Queen County; Coleta Vidal, New Kent County; Mary Wyatt, King and Queen County; Melissa Daul, Mathews County; Barbra Furr, Gloucester County; and RCC nurse aide instructor Tanya Taliaferro.
