SPC receives gift to grow nursing, CMA and patient care tech programs

November 16, 2020 - St. Petersburg College has received a gift from the Hough Family Foundation to provide seed funding needed to grow the school's nursing, certified medical assistant and patient care technician programs. The gift will be used to expand SPC’s nursing simulation lab as well as provide additional training equipment and faculty support for the CMA and PCT programs. Through 2026, there is a projected 21 percent job growth for nurses in Florida, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. With the increase of Covid-19 testing and the high demand for healthcare workers even prior to the pandemic, employers are in even greater need of trained medical assistants at outpatient clinics and urgent care centers.
