Central Valley Medical Center - LPN Education Partnership

Nephi, UT

What is it?
This partnership between Central Valley Medical Center, a rural hospital and a community college provides education for licensed practical nurses (LPNs). The hospital provides classroom space and facilitates the opportunity for clinical experience.

Who is it for?
Residents of Juab County and surrounding areas.

Why do they do it?
The program has helped the community expand educational opportunities while helping the hospital address the issue of a continuing nursing shortage. Hosting the program locally saves students driving an hour to reach an actual college campus.

Impact
Since 2005, the partnership has allowed many students to obtain needed educational requirements to become an LPN without traveling long distances.
