Reaching Students All Over the United States and the World
Professor Linda Mesko is the program director for Camden County College’s health information technology, medical coding and electronic health records programs. She has been at CCC for almost four years.
Before coming to the College, Professor Mesko was an instructor at the University of South Carolina. She chose to relocate to the Northeast – and to CCC – because doing so put her closer to family and friends and because of what her current position had to offer in terms of diversity.
“The student population is a great mix of high school grads, career-changers and women with older children looking for a career,” she explains.
All of Professor Mesko’s programs are offered online. She finds it exciting to be meeting students from all over the United States as well as from countries all over the world.
“I really like the fact that CCC is open to offering these programs online,” she says. “This method of instruction allows us to reach people who would never have this opportunity otherwise.”
USAF Reservist Brings Experience to Nursing Programs
Audrey Brooks has been a full- time faculty member of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey’s School of Nursing as well as a nurse educator at Hahnemann-Medical College of Pennsylvania Medical Schools. She also is a major in the United States Air Force Reserve and was deployed as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom, providing medical care and transport for wounded military out of Iraq and Afghanistan.
With all of that experience and all of those experiences, Brooks recently became the new director of nursing programs at Camden County College. And she did so on the eve of her 25th year in nursing education.
Brooks said she is quite impressed with how friendly and helpful everyone has been in helping her acclimate to her new position. She also is looking forward to developing the future of the nursing programs at CCC.
“The field of nursing is dynamic, diverse and ever changing in today’s world,” Brooks said. “I am proud to be part of the education of future nurses.”
