Tennova Healthcare – Jefferson Memorial Hospital show support for C-N’s nursing program

Carson-Newman University’s nursing program received a $1,000 gift from Tennova Healthcare - Jefferson Memorial Hospital in celebration of National Doctor’s Day. Representing JMH is Carson-Newman Board of Trustees Chair Dr. Hong Tjoa (left). Receiving the gift is Nursing Department Chair Lana Spence and C-N President Charles A. Fowler. The group stands in front of the future home of C-N nursing, the Drama and Ted Russell Center.

In celebration of National Doctor’s Day, Tennova Healthcare – Jefferson Memorial Hospital chose to thank providers who serve the community and hospitals. In lieu of gifts, Tennova Healthcare – Jefferson donated to local nursing programs, including Carson-Newman University.

According to Jefferson Memorial, physicians voted to determine what cause they wanted the money to go towards. In support of future caregivers, they chose to give Carson-Newman’s nursing scholarship fund $1,000, benefiting students who have chosen healthcare career paths. Physicians also chose to donate to Walters State Foundation’s general nursing scholarship.

The donation comes as Carson-Newman readies to open its 48,000 square foot Drama and Ted Russell Center. The facility, scheduled to welcome students this fall, will serve as the new hub for C-N’s nursing program. The center includes additional classroom space, simulation labs, health assessment labs and general skills labs.
