October 5, 2017 Dr. Wolfe requested as consultant for Hudson Community College

Recently Dr. Krista Wolfe, dean of the School of Nursing and Health Sciences, served as a consultant for Hudson County Community College. Hudson County Community College is a public, comprehensive urban community college committed to offering high-quality programs that are affordable, accessible and community-centered. Students at HCCC may pursue courses on two campuses in New Jersey. The college services the residents and businesses of Hudson County, one of the most densely populated and ethnically diverse areas of America. The student body reflects the makeup of Hudson County with slightly more than 50% being of Hispanic heritage, about 16% African-American, 11% White and 8% Asian-American/Pacific Islander. More than one-third of HCCC students were born outside of the United States and have reported nearly 105 different countries as their places of birth. Sixty percent of the college’s student body are women.

HCCC contacted Dr. Wolfe as an out-of-state consultant to review a new program proposal titled Medical Sciences – Pre Professional. The proposed program is intended as an A.S. degree within the community college. The program falls within the School of Nursing and Health Sciences. She was approved by the Board of Directors of HCCC on Aug. 4, to serve as a program consultant. Dr. Wolfe reviewed the program based on the mission and vision of the college, needs assessment for the program and the community, programmatic curriculum design, administration and implementation. On Sept. 29, she sent recommendations for approval with suggested changes to the proposal.

The changes were accepted and implemented by the college and Hudson County Community College is moving forward with the application.
