July 3rd, 2008

Hartnell College’s opening day enrollments for its six-week summer session were up significantly over last year, reports Mary Dominguez, director of student enrollment.

On this summer’s opening day, June 23, students had enrolled in 18,048 units, up 20.1% over opening day last year. The number of students enrolled at the college for summer was also up 18% over last summer.

Hartnell’s nursing and health services programs, in particular, offer a robust summer program this year, including courses in basic pharmacology, growth and development across the lifespan, IV therapy technician, and an EMT technician ambulance course.

The Nursing Program recently was awarded $439,407 in grants from the Chancellor’s Office Career Technical Education program.

Hartnell College, one of California’s 110 community colleges, is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Established in 1920, it is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the state. Hartnell has two campuses in Salinas and an education center in King City to serve all the education and workforce training needs of the greater Salinas Valley.
