From the Classroom to the Community
Recently, second year students in the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) Program, under the supervision of R-CCC Nursing Faculty and the Hertford County Health Department, administered COVID-19 vaccines to over 50 R-CCC faculty and staff. They also assisted with the 780 vaccines administered at the Ahoskie Amphitheater.

"I was surprised at how many people were genuinely happy to get the vaccine. I think getting the COVID-19 vaccine is a symbol for some, their way of getting back to normal." – Paula Harrell
“I loved everything about yesterday. It felt like we were fighting the good fight, like we played a huge part in America’s history. It was such a humbling experience to see everyone come together, like a little beam of hope in this dark time.” - Ryan Jernigan
“Participating in the COVID clinic was a wonderful opportunity. We were able to help the community by providing the COVID-19 vaccine to those most vulnerable to the disease. We are thankful that the health department let our class take part in the clinic so a greater number of people could receive the vaccine.” - Jared Riddick
“As a member of the 2021 ADN graduating class, being presented with the opportunity to participate in the Albemarle Regional Health Service's COVID-19 vaccine clinic was a very rewarding clinical experience. It was an honor to be able to serve the community during this pandemic by helping administer the first dose to those who were willing to receive the vaccine.” - Robin Williams
