Healthcare Educators of Central California

About HECC

About HECC

In the late 1970's, a group of hospital educators combined forces, receiving a grant for a nursing education library. In those days, it was a video library that was shared between Staff Development departments. We called ourselves "The 4-County Educators." In the 1990's, we joined NNSDO as an affiliate and changed our name. We continue our tradition of meeting four times a year, three at each other's facilities, and a mini-conference.


Over the years, we have supported each other by sharing general and nursing orientation agendas, new graduate program methods and content, and ideas to address increasing regulatory mandates. We support each other's American Heart programs and are able to combine our efforts with instructor classes and courses.

Our Mission

The purpose of Healthcare Educators of Central California is to provide education and support resources and a forum for discussion of issues pertinent to healthcare.
