No one has ever heard of a blood surplus, simply because blood is something used in every hospital across America on a daily basis.

The pandemic has proved the enemy of making sure our available blood supply remains dangerously low in a time of great need.

This proved complicated for many of our specialized courses, including but not limited to the culinary arts, manufacturing, metallurgy and most notably our nursing program.
