Wyoming Life Resource Center (WLRC) 2011 Community Partner of the Year
Wyoming Life Resource Center Campus in Lander, Wyoming
WLRC: a unique and exciting clinical site
Student comments offer the best description as to why Wyoming Life Resource Center was named as BRAND Community Partner for 2011: “I am so impressed with the professionalism and caring attitude of the staff and their amazing competence displayed toward the patients. [This experience] renewed my belief in the positive wonders and good of nursing.” And more:
“All the nurses are noticeably invested in our learning experiences. Unique and beneficial experiences abound: we've observed water and horse therapy, met with the chaplain, financial officer, physical therapists, and attended staff meetings. And have experienced what it is like to use an electrical wheel chair!" / “I was able to see and/or provide care with tracheostomy, G and J tubes, and suprapubic catheters, which I had seen very little of in the past. This provided a huge boost in my nursing self-confidence.” Thank you, WLRC!
