LMU-CSON Hosts In-Service Training for Knox County Health Services Educators
The Lincoln Memorial University-Caylor School of Nursing (LMU-CSON) hosted an in-service session for educators from Knox County Schools on Monday, April 5.
During the program, Dr. Tammy Dean, LMU-CSON dean, provided a virtual presentation to 30 health science teachers where she gave an overview of nursing including the degree and career options that are available to students coming out of high school. Dean also gave an overview of specific opportunities available for Knox County students to participate in dual enrollment courses, dual credit courses and opportunities to attend simulations and skills lab demonstrations at the LMU Tower.
After the online session, interested teachers were invited to tour LMU-CSON’s new facilities at the LMU Tower and have lunch. Fifteen teachers, Knox County Schools Career and Technical Education (CTE) Director Keith Wilson and CTE Specialist Jeana Kirby attended the lunch and tour.
“With nursing being such an in-demand field right now, it is important to make these connections with high school educators,” Dean said. “This was a great event to really provide these teachers with information on how to prepare their students for their career goals and explain the many pathways into a career in nursing.”
LMU-CSON will host a second event with students from Fulton High School later this month. The students will observe a simulation lab using one of the University’s high definition simulation mannequins.
Among the visitors were four LMU alumni who now work as Health Science educators, pictured below.
