Harton Regional Medical Center recently joined the list of donors to the Motlow College Foundation in support of "Tomorrow's Nurse is Today's Student," a fund-raising campaign for Motlow's Nursing and Allied Health Program, according to Jan Rogers, director of advancement at the college.
"Motlow's Nursing Program is of tremendous benefit to Harton and other medical facilities," said Russ Spray, Harton's chief executive officer. "Motlow's program produces top quality nurses with the skills needed to provide our patients with the best possible care, and the local medical community has great respect for the program. We currently have many nurses on staff who received their training at Motlow College."
"We encourage other hospitals, clinics, surgery centers, and physician's offices in our area to follow Harton's lead and commit to an annual donation to help sustain our nursing program and support our student needs, which include scholarships, equipment or other education-related needs as they arise," Rogers said. "With technology playing such a large role in health care today, it is vital that Motlow keep its nursing labs and equipment updated in order to train nurses who are prepared to work in high-tech, ever-changing environments."
Motlow College offers nursing courses on the Moore County campus and at its McMinnville and Smyrna centers under the guidance of Amy Huff, director of nursing education. Its graduates consistently exceed the National Council Licensure Examination pass rates at the state and national levels, and for the past five years achieved 100 percent job placement upon graduation.
