Chabot College Nursing Students on the Front Lines of COVID
Over the past year, there has been amazing work done by so many to provide assistance and care for others in the community. 

Beginning in the Fall of 2020, the Chabot College nursing program and pre-licensure nursing students began a unique collaboration with Tiburcio Vasquez Health Center, Inc. at sites in Hayward and San Leandro. They supported and worked directly with the community assisting with Covid-19 testing, wellness checks, health maintenance, etc. 

In the Spring of 2021, the Chabot College nursing program and pre-licensure nursing students began to assist with the administration of Covid-19 vaccines to members of the community. Each week, the students administer hundreds of vaccines to help combat this unprecedented pandemic.

The Chabot College Nursing Program has been on the front lines of this pandemic and continues to find ways to learn and provide care to those in need. We extend a huge thank you to Director Connie Telles, Chabot Nursing Faculty, and all of the students who have bravely and successfully responded when we needed it the most.
