PUEBLO – Pueblo Community College is addressing medical needs in southern Colorado.

PCC introduced three new programs on Wednesday to address the nursing shortage.

Students will now be able to earn a bachelor degree in Nursing or join the Paramedic to Registered Nurse program.

Kegan Godbey, a PCC instructor and student, told News5 the new programs will allow her to continue her health care career while still being able to work professionally on a full-time basis as well as not having to sacrifice time with her family.

Another new bachelor degree was also introduced in Respiratory Therapy.
