King University's School of Nursing, in association with Wellmont Bristol Regional
Medical Center, has been awarded a grant in the amount of $15,000 from the Foundation
of the National Student Nurses Association through the Promise of Nursing for Tennessee
Nursing School Grants program.
“We are always excited to partner with King University to offer our student nurses
programs that will enhance their skills when they graduate,” said Velvet Vanover with
Wellmont Bristol Regional Medical Center’s Department of Clinical Education. “This
grant will allow us to prepare our student nurses one step further; the patient is
always the one who will come out the best for it in the end.
The grant funding awarded by the Promise of Nursing for Tennessee Nursing School will
allow the King University School of Nursing to develop and implement a series of four
workshops titled “Transition to Practice.” The workshops will provide hands-on experience
in various nursing practices including IV Therapy, Assessment, Professional Communication,
and Team Building. The workshops, designed for a total of 18 students, will provide
training for 13 King nursing students along with five additional students from area
“Our relationship with Wellmont is a longstanding community partnership since the
schools beginning in the late 1990’s,” states Dr. Johanne Quinn, dean of nursing for
King University. “Both Wellmont staff and King faculty will guide the students in
refining these skills.”
The success of the workshops will overall enhance the employability of new nursing
graduates. After the initial workshops, King University School of Nursing faculty
will measure the effectiveness by recording attendance and workshop completion success.
Both the School of Nursing and Bristol Regional Medical Center will maintain a list
of workshop attendees in an effort to document placement, future employment and retention
“Working with King University’s School of Nursing has been a pleasure and anytime
we have the opportunity to collaborate with them, Wellmont is pleased to do so,” added
Since its inception in 1998, the King University School of Nursing’s mission has been
to educate students for professional nursing practice by integrating learning, living,
and faith in a collegiate environment of academic rigor and Christian nurture and
to prepare students for lifelong learning with a theoretical foundation based on Judeo-Christian
principles, and the liberal arts and sciences.
King’s School of Nursing currently offers three degree programs including Bachelor
of Science in Nursing, Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses, and Master
of Science in Nursing in which students may choose from four specialization areas
including nursing administration, family nurse practitioner, nursing education, or
a dual degree MSN/MBA.
