“Pioneer Care Center is excited for the opportunity to partner with Nightingale College to be the host site for the clinical practice for both new nurses and experienced LPNs and RNs looking to advance their career. As our population continues to age, the health care profession will continue to need clinically astute nurses that have the knowledge, experience, and compassion to care for those in need. Pioneer Care Center has proudly served the Brigham City area for over 50 years and is happy for the opportunity to provide additional nursing education and training in our local community.”
“Maple Springs of North Logan is thrilled to be partnering with the learners of Nightingale College for their long-term care clinical experiences. We feel that both our residents and our staff will enjoy the compassion and selfless service that the learners will bring to our community. There continues to be a nursing shortage here in Cache Valley, and Nightingale College will help to fill this gap by admitting cohorts three times a year.”
“First of all, in eastern Idaho there is a huge distribution problem in the state for nursing staff so having [Nightingale College] come in and recruit locally and teach locally will provide nursing staff in the communities that greatly need it, specifically in eastern Idaho. Secondly, the program provides a pathway for our current staff to go on and get licensed. So, our CNAS, it provides a pathway for our CNAs to get licensed and to retain them longer and develop career pathways for them, for our company. I think the module for the critical access areas is amazing. Not only critical access but areas where the nursing supply is short or where we are losing nurses. We are very challenged in our industry and the skilled nursing post-acute care setting to retain nurses because we can’t compete wage wise with the hospitals and big health systems. I think the module is applicable not only to the critical access areas where there are nursing shortages, but where our facilities are competing with these big health systems where we can’t compete with the compensation. So, it is value added so if we have that teaching component in there and can offer our current nursing assistant staff a career pathway with us and you are in there teaching it right in the building and they can matriculate from an LPN program to an RN program to potentially a BSN program that is just beautiful.
“Southern Utah CNA is enthusiastic about our recent partnership with Nightingale College and welcomes them to Southern Utah. We are always seeking opportunities and options to offer to our students that might further their careers and success in the future. Many of our students are just starting out in their path and aspire to work in nursing. We support Nightingale as their goals align so well with our own. The support that the staff at Nightingale gives our students is invaluable. What a great fit to have these programs available to future healthcare providers. Southern Utah has a great need for a program such as this. We give our support to their efforts and are excited to join them in providing the very best education to our community.”
