Nursing program grant
A $37,500 grant from the Blanche and Julian Robertson Family Foundation will benefit students in Rowan-Cabarrus Community College’s nursing programs.
RCCC will use the grant to buy a SimMan patient simulator, a portable and technically advanced patient simulator that provides realistic anatomy and clinical functionality. It will give students cutting-edge, simulation-based experience to challenge and test their clinical and decision-making skills in realistic patient care scenarios. The simulator includes advanced software and interactive technology, allowing students to practice all aspects of patient care.
“We thank the Robertson Family Foundation for its generous support,” said Cathy Norris, RCCC director of nursing education. “The SimMan patient simulator will provide RCCC nursing students with the most up-to-date technological training available. This advanced piece of equipment will greatly benefit our students in preparing them for the challenges they face in ensuring safe patient care delivery.”
