Maurine Church Coburn School of Nursing 

The Maurine Church Coburn School of Nursing (MCCSN) is a model public-private partnership between Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) and Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula.

The bond between MPC and Community Hospital began with a partnership that led to the nursing school's  founding. Today, Community Hospital continues to provides operating funds and staff to support the school. The school offers unparalleled opportunities for students to learn in real-world settings, interface directly with physicians and patients, develop close relationships with their colleagues, and hone their skills through hands-on experiences.

The didactic portion of the program includes in-service educational opportunities at the hospital along with outstanding resources (like a state-of-the-art simulation lab on the MPC campus) providing a distinctive and rich educational experience. In fact, nearly 95 percent of the graduating student body passed the licensing exam on their first try in 2012.

We are proud of our enduring relationship with MPC and the more than 1,200 nurses who have graduated. We invite the community to join us in support of this important program.
