College of the Canyons Chapter of the National Student Nurse Association chapter joined forces with Habitat For Humanity, in an effort to build new homes for United States veterans on March 22.

The Habitat For Humanity’s Sylmar Veteran Enriched Neighborhood is a community where twelve new homes are currently being built for veterans and their families.

A group of twenty student nurses from the College of the Canyons will arrive on site to participate and contribute to the worthwhile cause of building homes for those in need.

The COC Nurses Association mission is to mentor students preparing for initial licensure as registered nurses, and to convey the standards, ethics, and skills that students will need as responsible and accountable leaders and members of the profession.

COC’s Nursing Program provides relevant quality nursing education at the lower division level in order to meet the ongoing needs of the professional nursing workforce.
