Clatsop Community College’s Nursing Program Receives Generous Grants and Gifts from Providence Community Health

Clatsop Community College is delighted to announce the receipt of two substantial grants from Providence Community Health, totaling $130,000. These grants mark a significant investment in the college’s Nursing Program, emphasizing the importance of local nursing graduates in advancing community healthcare. Along with their generous investment to CCC, Providence Seaside Hospital also donated 7 state-of-the-art hospital beds for the nursing lab rooms at the campus.

Providence Community Health, through its Community Health Grants, has reaffirmed its commitment to fostering healthier communities. Jason Plamondon, RN, Chief Nursing Officer at Providence Seaside Hospital, expressed the organization’s dedication to providing top-quality care for the community. Plamondon stated, “We believe in the power of education, and we trust Clatsop Community College to prepare nursing students to become exceptional registered nurses. We are proud to support their nursing program to grow our own professionals in our community.”

The grants, allocated as follows, will empower the Clatsop Community College Nursing Program to enhance its offerings and support the education of future healthcare professionals:

$30,000 Grant for Faculty Enhancement:

This grant will be utilized to hire additional part-time nursing faculty, expanding the team overseeing nursing clinical groups. This increase in faculty capacity will raise the number of students in each clinical group from 20 to 24. Additionally, a portion of this grant will be dedicated to providing scholarships for nursing students, promoting accessibility to quality education.

$100,000 Grant for Increased Student Capacity:

The second grant, amounting to $100,000, is designated to augment the admitted student capacity for the 2024-25 first-year nursing cohort. This investment will facilitate a larger intake of students, addressing the growing demand for qualified nursing professionals in the region.

Doris Jepson, CCC Director of Nursing & Allied Health, highlighted the transformative impact of these grants, stating, “These grants will ultimately create better lives for our graduates and their families, and supply more nurses to support local healthcare agencies and services.”

The donations of the beds also make an inpact for the students and the program. “The state-of-the-art beds from Providence will replace several manual crank beds used currently in the college’s nursing labs,” said Tina Kotson, RN, nursing instructor, Clatsop Community College. “As a result, the students will soon have the benefit of using modern equipment to practice skills and build competency so they can provide optimal patient care in the hospital setting. We are very grateful!”

Clatsop Community College expresses profound gratitude to Providence Community Health for their visionary support of the Nursing Program. The collaboration between Providence Community Health and Clatsop Community College exemplifies a shared commitment to the well-being of the community, paving the way for a brighter and healthier future.
