Foundation Provides Study Skills Kits for NCC Nursing and Respiratory Care Students


Above, Respiratory Care students with the Foundation provided remote learning skills kit they each received, which they can use to follow online instruction this year.

This semester at NCC, future nurses and respiratory care technicians are studying so they can enter the workforce and put their skills to use taking care of patients.  There is unprecedented demand for nurses and healthcare professionals in Fairfield County.
