TMCC Receives Gift for Nursing Program

Posted: Jun 16, 2011

Reno, Nev. – Today, the Nevada Board of Regents approved a naming donation to the state’s top-rated nursing program at Truckee Meadows Community College (TMCC). The gift from the Maxine S. Jacobs Foundation will supply additional resources to ensure the program’s continued success in providing Northern Nevada with qualified health care professionals as well as scholarships for nursing students.

“We are grateful for the support the Maxine S. Jacobs Foundation is providing the nursing program here at TMCC,” said Ted Plaggemeyer, TMCC’s dean of the School of Sciences. “Funding is critical to the success of this and many of the programs at TMCC and allows us to create a well-educated future workforce.”

TMCC’s nationally recognized nursing program is a leader in workforce development and is vital to Northern Nevada. With more than 88 percent of its graduates hired by local hospitals, the nursing program relies on community support to help provide students with the qualified instructors and new technologies that they need to become successful healthcare professionals.

The generous donation from the Maxine S. Jacobs Foundation helps to make certain the program stays at the forefront of the nursing industry. TMCC will hold an official naming ceremony on the college’s Dandini Campus later this year.
