St. John's Medical Center Receives Community Partner Award
St. John’s Medical Center was recently recognized with the "Community
Partner of the Year" award by the Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing
at the University of Wyoming. St. John’s achieved the distinction
for its dedication and support of the University’s nursing students
in the BRAND program. “Our nursing staff works hard to be great
role models for the students,” says Lynn Kirman, Chief Nursing Officer.
“This is really a wonderful partnership.”
The BRAND program is University of Wyoming’s off-site Bachelor of
Science to nursing degree program. Students attend live, interactive classroom
sessions via satellite and gain clinical experience on the nursing units
at St. John’s Medical Center. Cathy Beck RN, MSN, Director of Medical-Surgical
Services, serves as the primary clinical instructor at St. John’s
and was recognized at the award ceremony. “This program couldn’t
be successful without the support of all staff throughout the medical
center” she said.
