Hawai‘i Community College students, faculty, staff and administrators participated in a traditional Hawaiian ceremony on Nov. 15 to celebrate the opening of the Nursing and Allied Health program’s new Nursing Learning Resource Center next to the Kona Community Hospital.

The traditional Hawaiian ceremony was led by Kumu Kalani Flores.

The new facility is a big improvement over the old space and provides a high-fidelity simulation suite where students can practice patient care using a high-tech mannequin.
