National Rural Health Day, celebrated today (November 19, 2020), holds special significance for Bluefield State College. Today, we salute the efforts of everyone serving the health needs of an estimated 57 million people in rural settings across the country.
The majority of students graduating from Bluefield State College’s Associate and Baccalaureate Nursing programs move into careers in rural health settings and are on the front line health professionals fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.
