The importance of the
Edward A. Whitney Endowed Nursing Chair
In 2006, Whitney Benefits created an endowment at Sheridan College to enrich nursing and nursing education in the community. The endowment established a collaboration between the University of Wyoming and Sheridan College through appointment of an endowed nursing chair. The Whitney Benefits Endowed Nursing Chair provides face-to-face advising and academic support for those students pursuing higher education in health science through the Northern Wyoming Community College District and the University of Wyoming.
Benefits resulting from the Whitney Chair Endowment
"The Endowed Nursing Chair creates a significant opportunity for students in the Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) service area," says David Bodily, UW Nursing RN-BSN Completion and ReNEW Program director. "We know this position increases the numbers of students completing bachelor degrees, and we know this is an advantage to the communities where these professionals serve." Bodily continues, "The relationship between the NWCCD and the FWWSON is strengthened by this position and the communication it facilitates. We couldn't be happier to begin working with Wendy for the benefit of our students."
