Last year, the Compton Community College District celebrated the grand opening of its all-new Allied Health Building which houses the Nursing and Child Development programs for Compton College. The 20,350-square foot Allied Health Building features three classrooms, one lecture hall, one simulation lab, four health science labs, 11 faculty offices and an office for the dean of student learning, a computer lab, and a student lounge. Each health science lab can be set up to provide for a variety of hands-on learning experiences.
Compton College’s Nursing program provides a viable career path for those interested in health care and will help replenish the supply of qualified health care providers needed in the workforce. According to the Institute of Medicine, by 2020 nearly half of all registered nurses will reach traditional retirement age. By 2030, the United States will need an extra 3.5 million formal health care providers just to maintain the existing ratio of providers to the total population.
The Career and Technical Education (CTE) program at Compton College offers 16 different job training programs for those looking to begin a career, planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, or needing to upgrade skills or develop new ones for a specific profession.
