Santa Ana, CA, January 21, 2021

Santa Ana, CA-based CNI College students and instructors are volunteering to help roll out the COVID-19 vaccine to healthcare workers at several Orange County and Los Angeles-area hospitals amid the holiday surge in cases. To date, over 60 students and faculty members have volunteered, exemplifying earnest commitment, passion, and determination to the field they have chosen.
In a historic effort to distribute the emergency vaccine, CNI College students and faculty are actively demonstrating the values and principals upon which the school was founded. “The impact the pandemic has had on the nation’s healthcare workers is severe. To see our students and faculty embrace their duties and offer a spirit of volunteerism and solidarity to those on the frontlines is heartwarming, and it is exactly the culture we envisioned when we opened CNI College in 1994,” said Colleen Buffington, owner of CNI College.
“During this dismal time, when so many people are sick and suffering, healthcare workers are overwhelmed, tired, and strained. We are doing our part to help offer some relief. It is our duty to keep communities safe and we are grateful to assist. I am proud to be part of this extraordinary effort,” said CNI College student and member of the U.S. National Guard, Deja Duffy.
Over the coming weeks and months, CNI College representatives will continue to work with local hospitals and agencies on vaccine distribution and pandemic relief.
