MOCKSVILLE (June 22, 2022) – The Davie campus of Davidson-Davie Community College sits not far from major health-care providers in the Piedmont Triad and Charlotte: Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist, Novant, you name it.
“They’re excellent partners with our college, and there’s a lot of workforce in this region related to health care,” Davidson-Davie President Darrin Hartness says in the accompanying video.
Davidson-Davie produces about 80 nurses a year from its Nursing program.
“But you cannot forget all the supporting jobs that go along with health care,” Hartness says. “We have other programs that lead to nursing.”
In Central Sterile Processing and Surgical Technology, Hartness says, “Those students play a critical role in operating rooms. Operating rooms could not function without the support services of those critical positions in that workforce.”
“So there’s a holistic view, there’s the medical view, and just lots of jobs around the health-care field,” Hartness says.
“This is an excellent opportunity for students to get an introduction to working in a medical environment.”
