Roper St. Francis Healthcare to make donation to CSU nursing school
Roper St. Francis Healthcare will present a commitment for $100,000 to fund a skills lab in Charleston Southern University’s expanded College of Nursing and Allied Health.
"Our long-standing partnership with Roper St. Francis Healthcare has been critical to not only the growth but also to the excellence of our BSN program,” said Dr. Tara Hulsey, dean of the College of Nursing and Allied Health at CSU. “The clinical and financial support provided by Roper St. Francis Healthcare is significant and has contributed to the success of our students. I am extremely grateful for the relationship and this most generous gift of support."
"CSU is grateful for the partnership with Roper St. Francis through the years with the Derry Patterson Wingo College of Nursing and Allied Health,” said CSU president Dr. Jairy C. Hunter. “In every stage of expansion of our nursing program, our friends at Roper St. Francis have provided encouragement, employment opportunities for our graduates and financial support.”
Charleston Southern University broke ground on a new expansion of the College of Nursing and Allied Health last fall. The new facility is scheduled to open in June 2013. Visit CharlestonSouthern.edu/transform for more information on CSU's capital campaign.
