Approximately 60 students a year graduate as registered nurses from Hudson Valley Community College's Nursing Program — a program that is fully enrolled each year. The Hudson Valley Community College Foundation continues to secure external funding to maintain the college's expanded nursing program. The nursing program was expanded in 2008 to provide the Capital Region with more qualified nurses. Outside funding also is needed to enhance and upgrade the college's medical instructional equipment.
Capital Communications Cares Foundation, the charitable arm of CAP COM Federal Credit Union, recognizes the critical need for quality nursing staff in the medical community.
In an effort to support this imminent issue, CAP COM has pledged $100,000 to Hudson Valley Community College in support of its outstanding nursing program. This support goes hand-in-hand with the CAP COM Foundation's commitment to supporting community health and wellness programs and education initiatives.
