Rotary Club donates funds to CWC Nursing program

JACKSON, Wyo. — The Jackson Hole Rotary Supper Club is donating over $37,200 to the Central Wyoming College (CWC) nursing education program. This donation will provide an Intelligent Simulator Mannequin for teaching purposes at the CWC-Jackson locations.

The simulator can be programmed with a variety of conditions to allow nursing students to hone their skills from routine procedures such as taking blood pressure to critical care situations as complex as cardiac events.

“This incredibly generous donation places Jackson students at the forefront of nursing education,” said Dr. Stacey Stanek, director of the CWC nursing program. “Having this simulator in the clinical laboratory affords students an opportunity to develop advanced clinical reasoning skills.”

“Participation in realistic scenarios in which the simulator reacts as a live patient allows for repeated practice, which leads to enhanced clinical judgment. As a result, CWC is able to educate stronger, safer nurses who will serve Jackson and the surrounding communities for years to come.”

Currently, CWC-Jackson classes are held at the Center for the Arts. However, the college and community continue to work toward a plan that includes a move to CWC’s own facility in Jackson in the future.

“Our Club is honored to be partnering with CWC to enrich their programming locally, especially in the area of nursing education”, said Richard Tambor, Foundation Chair of the Rotary Supper Club. “The Intelligent Simulator can be used immediately in the current CWC location and can be moved easily to the new facility when it is complete.”
