Corpus Christi (KIII News) — Del Mar College is stepping up to help students after their vocational school closed down.

On Wednesday Brightwood College announced they are closing all of their campuses across the nation, after losing accreditation.

After learning about the closure, Del Mar College's nursing department decided to host an advising session for former Brightwood students.

Del Mar College hopes to lead the students in the right direction, so they don't have to start from square one.

Brightwood College wants to help students access their transcripts to continue education, but Del Mar College is already helping out.

Many of the students at Brightwood College were working to become licensed vocational nurses.

"Our heart goes out to them, we are going to do our best to serve the students, they're part of our community, and we need to be there to help them," said Dr. Shannon Ydoyaga, dean of health sciences.

There will be two advising sessions in the Emerging Technology Building on Del Mar College west's campus for all the students.
