Mountain View Regional Hospital in Casper: 2015 Community Partner of the Year

The Fay W. Whitney School of Nursing Basic BSN Program named Mountain View Regional Hospital in Casper (MVRH) the Community Partner for 2015. “Matt Jacobson, Chief Nursing Officer, is instrumental in arranging clinical experiences for our capstone students,” says Basic BSN Coordinator Holly Miller. “Matt also happens to be a graduate of our program, of whom we are very proud. He is so welcoming to our capstone students and will take students at a moment’s notice when we need a last minute placement. Everyone at Mountain View Regional Hospital continually provides rich learning experiences for our students. MVRH staff members are flexible, easy to work with, and always try to accommodate the interests of our students.”

Miller continues, “Always thinking of the students’ needs, MVRH provides leadership opportunities as well as opportunities to polish interviewing skills. This spring MVRH personnel came to Laramie to hold job interviews with our senior students and mock job interviews with our junior students. MVRH has also generously provided assistance and financial support for the Marcia Dale Aspire Scholars program students.”

“We greatly appreciate MVRH efforts and support,” Miller concludes. “Our collaboration with them has been extremely beneficial to our students, and at the same time has been a wonderful experience for our faculty and staff.”

Official presentation of the 2015 award took place at the school's annual Nightingale Ceremony on September 3, 2015 at the Arts & Sciences Auditorium at 3:30 p.m. The Nightingale Ceremony welcomes new Basic BSN and accelerated BRAND students into the profession of nursing.
