Trumbull Memorial Hospital Supports Kent State Trumbull Nursing Program
Students and faculty of Kent State University at Trumbull’s nursing program will begin the school year with eight upgraded hospital beds thanks to Trumbull Memorial Hospital. The donation marks a significant improvement for the campus nursing lab.
“We are truly appreciative of Trumbull Memorial Hospital’s generous support,” offered Kathy Dwinnells, Kent State Trumbull nursing program coordinator. “These newer beds more closely resemble what future nurses will encounter in today’s hospitals.”
According to John Walsh, Trumbull Memorial Hospital’s Chief Executive Officer, the donation was made possible through the hospital’s equipment upgrade program.
“Many of Kent State Trumbull’s nursing students train at Trumbull Memorial and go on to become our employees,” Walsh said. “ If we can provide equipment that enhances their education, then it’s a win-win for both organizations.”
Kent State Trumbull currently offers a Bachelor of Science of Nursing (BSN) degree. This four-year degree can be fully completed at the Trumbull Campus, with students fulfilling their clinical requirements at local healthcare facilities.
