Something Old Something New

To help meet the surging demand for medical care as veterans returned home from World War II, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College (MGCCC) created its first nursing program back in 1944. Since that time, the college has become a leader in local health care education--and a brand-new Nursing and Simulation Center will help further this legacy. Given the college's long history of providing nursing education, it seems fitting that the facility should be located in a community called Tradition. In fact, the center is a perfect example of how tradition and innovation come together at the college to offer a unique experience for the citizens of the Mississippi Gulf Coast students. As MGCCC continues to embrace those aspects that have always been its strengths--such as partnerships with local employers that have been in place for decades--the college is also building on these aspects with new programs and activities that bring it to the forefront of 21st-century education.
