County of Applicant:

This grant provides funding to Pitt Community College to equip a 10-bed simulated hospital on its main campus. This request is part of an overall $1.4 million project that also includes building renovation, IT infrastructure upgrades, sonography, echocardiography, EMS, and mammography labs, and modifications to an existing radiography lab. The project is needed to increase enrollment in nursing by 50 students and in allied health programs by ten students, increase clinical placement options, and enhance the College’s educational and training capacity to meet the needs of employers in the region. Vidant Medical Center reports the need to hire 300 new nurses annually. The project is also expected to improve NCCLEX first-time pass rates above the current 92% achieved by the program in 2017.
