Whitney Benefits and Sheridan College share the RN/BSN Completion Program award for the 2015 Community Partner. Whitney Benefits instituted an endowment at Sheridan College to enrich nursing and nursing education in the community in 2008. The endowment established a collaborative between the University of Wyoming and Sheridan College through appointment of an endowed nursing chair. This chair serves as a liaison between the University of Wyoming and Sheridan College nursing students and practicing associate degree nurses. The Edward A Whitney Endowed Chair position provides face-to-face advising and academic support for those pursuing the RN/BSN Completion degree. The establishment of an endowed nursing chair at a community college is a unique arrangement and has served as the model for future endeavors to facilitate RN to BSN education statewide.

Official presentation of the 2015 award will take place the fall of 2015 in Sheridan, Wyoming.
