Citrus Hospital Grants $124,000 to Support CF Nursing Programs

The CF Foundation has received a $124,000 grant from the Citrus County Hospital Board to fund the purchase of two high-fidelity patient simulators for the Nursing program at the Citrus Campus. In addition, the grant will purchase a cutting-edge Anatomage virtual dissection table for Anatomy and Physiology courses.

“The funding demonstrates the Citrus County Hospital Board’s commitment to education and their investment in our next generation of health care providers,” said Chris Knife, executive director of the CF Foundation. “The grant will enhance the CF Nursing program and allow the college to provide the best educational experience and training to Citrus County students.”

The CF Foundation was one of five applicants out of 26 that received full funding for its request. The equipment is expected to be available to students by Spring Semester, which begins Jan. 8.
