REDDING, Calif. - The coronavirus has thrown a lot of nursing students’ future in limbo when it comes to graduation. But Shasta College will be able to graduate 18 registered nurses and 15 licensed vocational nurses.

In order for nursing students to graduate from the program at Shasta College, they need to complete at least 1100 clinical hours.

The restrictions put in place during the pandemic it was difficult for nurses to take their clinical. But some students completed their clinical hour rotation by working with Shasta County Public Health and Shasta Community Health.

“There's always a need for nurses, it's an ever-changing evolving career, and it's always growing,” said Amanda McChesney, a graduating nursing student. “There's always different areas that need nurses, especially now because we could potentially see an influx of patients.”

Shasta College says it has plans to use the California Health Corps to help several other students complete their clinical hours.

A small trough of low pressure moved over the Pacific Northwest on this first day of autumn, and it brought more gusty wind and an improvement to the air quality for most of us. The breezes will continue through the week, and other changes are coming soon.
