Gift Creates Sheridan College Nursing Program

Sheridan, Wy – A million dollar donation from Sheridan's Whitney Benefits will allow Sheridan College to offer a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. The College will partner with the University of Wyoming to offer the degree. Sheridan College's Dean of Nursing Trudy Munsick says it should help address some health care needs in northeast Wyoming, but more importantly, it will aide area students, who are site bound. She says it is something they have been trying to get for a number of years. The state will match the gift and an endowed chair will be created and that person will oversee the program.
