WellStar, Kennesaw State University enhance nursing partnership

Atlanta Journal-Constitution, September 2, 2008
WellStar Health System has entered into a partnership with Georgia's Kennesaw State University to enhance KSU's nursing program, develop WellStar's future workforce, and make a dent in the severe shortage of nurses facing the nation. The university and WellStar will work together to recruit more KSU Bachelor of Science nurses to work throughout the WellStar system. An adjunct faculty certification program will also be established for qualified WellStar nurses, through which nursing students will spend six to eight weeks per semester engaged in hands-on training.
