Student Testimonial

Peter Paul Montague former RCC nursing studentPeter Paul Montague, CCU RN

I attended the RCC School of Nursing from 2005-2007, at the age of 38. I was immediately engaged by the course material and the enthusiasm of the instructors, and instantly knew I had made the right decision in choosing RCC to pursue Nursing as a second career. I have spent the last 11 years as a bedside RN in the Cardiac Intensive Care Unit at Rogue Regional Medical Center. RCC's School of Nursing was both demanding and rewarding, and gave me the skills and confidence needed to excel in a difficult and stressful environment.
