ACADEMICSPOTLIGHT Partnerships with Area Hospitals Expanding Nursing Opportunities LEFT: Lindsey Wilson College President William T. Luckey Jr. and T.J.

RIGHT: Chief Nursing Officer for Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital, Sheryl Glasscock, and Luckey sign the partnership agreement between the two organizations on May 16. Lindsey Wilson College is helping improve healthcare in Southcentral Kentucky. Through partnerships with two area hospitals, LWC is working to help prepare more nurses for the region. “We desperately need more nurses in healthcare,” said Bud Wethington, president and chief executive officer of T.J. Samson Community Hospital in Glasgow, Ky. Along with Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital in Somerset, Ky., T.J. Samson Community Hospital signed a partnership with LWC in the spring to make nursing education more accessible in the region. The partnerships allows nurses who work full-time at the hospitals to earn an accredited baccalaureate degree in 18 months in a fully online format. Hospital employees who pursue a RN to BSN degree will benefit from a reduced tuition rate at LWC. One employee at each hospital will receive the LWC RN to BSN Scholarship. T.J. Samson Community Hospital The agreement marks another milestone for the continued collaboration between the LWC and T.J. Samson Community Hospital. Since the nursing program’s inception, LWC has graduated 75 BSN nurses, and a self-study found that 22 percent of those graduates have been employed by T.J. Samson Community Hospital. “We know this arrangement will encourage our employees to further their education and use it, day in and day out in their career, to give better care to our patients,” said Wethington. Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital was the first hospital to partner with the LWC Nursing and Health Division. The same LWC self-study found that 30 percent of LWC nursing graduates have been employed by Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital. Lake Cumberland Regional Hospital Chief Nursing Officer Sheryl Glasscock said that LWC’s nursing program sets itself apart from others in the region. “I think one of the great attributes of the Lindsey Wilson program is their leadership track,” said Glasscock. “They focus with individual nurse leaders in our organization to shadow and initiate projects that would grow them as an individual and nurse leader while also helping us out immensely. Not only are you going to be a nurse giving direct care to patients, but creating new avenues of service to our patients and improving the quality of the care that’s provided.” LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. said the partnerships are an example of the college’s commitment to helping the region. “There are more things we can do for the community and our students,” said Luckey. “We will work together and provide bright, educated nurses that will continue to help the hospitals and have a positive impact on healthcare in our region.” 22 | LINDSEY WILSON COLLEGE | CORNERSTONE
