Practical Nursing Program Celebrates 60th Anniversary

Salem Community College’s Practical Nursing (PN) program will celebrate its 60th anniversary on Saturday, October 5. All PN alumni, current PN students, former PN faculty and staff, and program supporters are invited to a brunch at 9:30 a.m. in the Davidow Hall Lobby, 460 Hollywood Ave., Carneys Point, N.J.

The two-hour celebration will feature remarks from Salem Medical Center Chief Nursing Officer Donna Carson, MSN, RN; a slide show highlighting the flagship program’s history; and a hot buffet served by Lapp’s Dutch Market. The event is free, thanks to the generosity of the Salem Medical Center and the SCC Foundation.

The PN program was among the first programs at Salem Vocational-Technical Institute, which became Salem Community College in 1972. Today, SCC’s Practical Nursing ranks among the top PN programs in New Jersey. For more information and to register, contact Gail Donelson at 856-351-2203 or
