In honor of the 10th year of its Registered Nursing Program, Paul D. Camp Community College has a special celebration planned. The event will take place on Friday, Feb. 6, 2015 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Hilton Garden Inn and Suffolk Conference Center in Suffolk.

“This is going to be an exciting event where nursing alumni, current students, faculty, staff, donors and other business and community members can come together to recognize the success of this program and our students,” said Vice President for Institutional Advancement Felicia Blow.

In addition, all proceeds will be used to establish an endowed nursing scholarship in honor of Dr. Candace Rogers, who recently retired from PDCCC. Dr. Rogers got the nursing program up and running, and was instrumental in its continued success.

The reception will be highlighted by heavy hors d’ouevres, music, and a short program honoring staff and students. Tickets are $35 per person.

PDCCC has graduated approximately 300 students from its RN Program. For more information, contact the Office for Institutional Advancement at 757-569-6790. Visit to purchase tickets.
