4C Academy Nursing Students Dress for Success


February 13, 2018— Albany, GA—The Commodore Conyers College and Career Academy (4C Academy) Healthcare Services pathway instructors, Jessica Blanchard, BSN, RN and Jeanifer Hill, BSN, RN, received multiple donations of scrubs to be worn by 4C Academy nursing students.

According to Blanchard and Hill, “We know that for our team members to be successful, they must be dressed for the part. Here at the 4C, we ask our team to “Dress for Success” once a week in either scrubs or business attire.” To assist team members unable to secure proper healthcare attire, both instructors reached out via their personal social media to ask for donations of gently used scrubs. “We are very appreciative of the donations received, many of which came from anonymous donors,” says Blanchard.   

4C Academy CEO, Chris Hatcher agrees, “Our goal at the 4C Academy is to prepare our students for the real world. This includes teaching them about situational appropriateness - in which students learn the social norms within their desired field. For medical professionals, this often means wearing scrubs.  Our healthcare labs allow our instructors to simulate a variety of healthcare settings  such as a hospital room, a medical office or the home care environment.  The scrubs allow the instructors to further the simulation as our students prepare for their next steps.  We appreciate each and every donation!”     

The donated scrubs will be assigned to students in the Healthcare Services pathway. Additional donations are needed and may be dropped off at the school during regular school hours.
