Dear Faculty and Staff:

tbt.4.27.21_AI am happy to share that the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) at its March meeting of the Board of Commissioners granted continuing accreditation to the SCC Associate Degree Nursing program. The next scheduled evaluation visit is set for Fall 2028. The ACEN commended the flexibility, courage, and resiliency demonstrated by the nursing program faculty and leaders and SCC’s institutional colleagues during the global pandemic. The ACEN extended their thanks to the program’s leadership for maintaining high standards while providing outstanding support to students and our communities. Congratulations on this outstanding achievement!

The SCC Campus Store recently debuted its updated website with improved features and layout. Be sure to check it out. The site features new SCC-branded apparel and Cougar spirit gear to help to update your spring wardrobe.

tbt.4.27.21_BThis weekend, Center Stage Theatre will present David Lindsay-Abaire’s Rabbit Hole. Rabbit Hole charts a couple’s bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day. Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, this play examines the many ways we cope with grief in our lives, including humor, compassion, and honesty. Tickets may be purchased here.

tbt.4.27.21_CI’d like to thank the panel of faculty and administrators, as well as Sara Evers with the St. Charles County Public Health Department, who led a discussion about the COVID-19 vaccine streamed live on YouTube last Wednesday. The goal of the panel was to dispel fear, address misinformation, and talk about the safety of the vaccine. It is available here for replay on the SCC YouTube Channel.


Lastly, the next two weeks may be intense for our students as they prepare for finals. Please share details about De-Stress Week, set for May 3-6, including sessions on Transforming Your Stress to Calm and a Guided Coloring Party. For details and registration information, visit the portal.

Have a wonderful week,
