Nurse training a joint effort

The Associated Press

        LOUISVILLE — A medical center and a private college are working together to recruit nursing students and make sure they're trained on the latest equipment.

        The partnership between Norton Healthcare and Spalding University is backed by a $190,000 grant from Norton.

        Over four years, the grant will pay for:

        • Tuition aid to students designated as “Norton fellows.”

        • A liaison to provide advice to nursing students and to make sure their training is up to date.

        • Creating an electronically enhanced classroom and state-of-the-art laboratory with cardiac monitors and other equipment.

        The new equipment will allow the university “to keep current with what is actually being used on the floors and in the wards at the hospitals,” said Spalding President Thomas R. Oates.
