TriStar Horizon Medical Center’s chief executive officer, Jason Boyd, and chief nursing officer, Gina Bullington, recently presented a donation to Freed-Hardeman University/Dickson. The $50,000 contribution will be used to support and expand the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) program in Dickson.
“We are honored to partner with Freed-Hardeman as they continue to play an integral role in providing high-quality nurses, especially during an ongoing nursing shortage,” Gina Bullington, chief nursing officer at TriStar Horizon, said. “We share a deep passion for supporting and caring for our local community.”
“Tri-Star Horizon has been an amazing partner, providing the highest level of clinical experience to prepare our graduates to enter the nursing workplace,” Dr. Bob Spencer, FHU/Dickson nursing director, said. “We are committed to nursing education in Dickson to meet the community’s healthcare needs, and plans are in place to expand the faculty and admissions. Tri-Star Horizon’s partnership and generous donation come at a crucial time for the program’s growth.”
Taught by a faculty with more than 150 years of nursing experience, FHU/Dickson nursing graduates have achieved a 100 percent NCLEX pass rate since the program’s inception. Classes taught at the Renaissance Center feature state-of-the-art classrooms equipped with the latest in clinical simulation mannequins. The FHU program allows nursing students to complete their BSN degree program and take the RN licensure exam in only 21 months. TriStar Horizon has hired approximately 35 graduates from the FHU program.
