Celebrate Nurses Week 2016

Posted on 05/09/2016

National Nurses Week is May 6-12 and we at West Coast University wanted to take a moment to thank our nursing students, nursing faculty and associates and our community partners. We appreciate all of our nurses and future nurses for helping take care of our community.
