The Holmes Community College Attala Center held a Ribbon Cutting and Open House this morning in Kosciusko to introduce the public to the new practical nursing wing at the center.

City and county officials joined the Holmes faculty, staff and administrators for the official opening of the nursing wing. PN instructors Christi Blair and Tammy Caldwell along with the current nursing students manned different stations to show what the facility has to offer them and incoming student nurses.

The Practical Nursing Program, formerly at the Goodman Campus, moved to the Attala Center in Kosciusko in the fall to open new opportunities for the nursing students in the central part of the district.

By making the move, the practical nursing program nearly doubled the size of the department going from 2,760 to 5,178 square feet and separated the classroom and laboratory and also added a simulation room.
