A Valuable Partnership
Jan 27, 2012
Maria Parham Hospital in Henderson, North Carolina is one of the clinical sites for the Danville Campus’s surgical technology program. Over the past few years, students have been working closely with the OR staff at this hospital as externs practicing the skills they learned in the classroom.
Director of Surgical Technology Kim Joyce and Clinical Coordinator Jennifer Turner recently visited the hospital and met with Melissa Ranes and Don Anderson to talk about the campus’s externship program and surgical technology students.
Melissa and Don currently work with students from the Danville Campus during their externship. They both agreed that students from National College were well trained. Melissa specifically pointed out that they have a good knowledge of the instruments used in surgical procedures.
The Danville Campus truly values their relationship with Maria Parham and looks forward to sending more students there for future externships.
