According to LWC Nursing and Health Division Chair Emiley Button the agreement marks another milestone for the continued collaboration between the college and hospitals in the region.
"Taylor Regional Hospital will begin serving as a key partner in our RN to BSN online program," said Button. "This will enhance the education and the training of Taylor Regional employees, and the relevance of Lindsey Wilson College's RN to BSN online program. The intent is to foster continuous improvement to both organizations and to provide opportunities for the collaboration and growth and the effectiveness of the hospital's nursing staff."
Jane Wheatley, Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Regional Hospital, has heard praise about Lindsey Wilson's nursing students from Taylor Regional Nursing Services Administrator Dana Garrett.
"Dana has told me many times how well the nurses we are receiving from Lindsey Wilson do, how well rounded they are, what a great education they are getting, and she's very impressed with those nurses." says Wheatley.
Lindsey Wilson College President William T. Luckey Jr. says the partnership is an example of what can be accomplished when we work together.
"This agreement takes our partnership with Taylor Regional Hospital to the next level," said Luckey. "Finding ways to educate more nurses will have an immeasurable impact on healthcare in our community and our region."
The agreement will streamline the LWC admissions and enrollment process for Taylor Regional Hospital employees.
