Adult Education prepares for Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing Open House

An open house is scheduled for Tuesday, September 24 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing.

The open house will be a reflection of how far the program has come in 30 years and will highlight the upcoming opportunities available through the Clark State partnership. The open house runs from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center with the final nursing class graduation following at 7 p.m.

This is the final year the nursing program will be under the Hi-Point umbrella before the final transition into the Clark State Community College partnership. Classes will still take place on the Hi-Point campus in Bellefontaine, but students will have the opportunity to gain college credit and pay a lower tuition rate.

“The nursing program has helped so many people in our surrounding communities,” commented Jan Didich, nursing instructor, “it’s been a joy to teach and watch our students enter the workforce and be successful.”

Old photos will be hung around the building while current and former students and instructors swap stories of the healthcare field.

In addition to honoring the 30 years of dedication to the profession, the open house will be a celebration of the business partnerships, mentors and advisory committee members that have been established over the years. These include: Memorial Hospital of Union County, Logan Acres, the Logan and Union County District Job and Family Services, Mercy Memorial Hospital in Urbana, Green Hills, Hardin Memorial Hospital, Mary Rutan Hospital and Universal Home Health and Hospice and several others.

While this is the final nursing program to graduate under the Hi-Point emblem, the opportunities in the Healthcare field in Logan County are gaining momentum with the partnership with Clark State Community College.

“We’re not going anywhere,” continued Didich, “our commitment to students and healthcare remains, but now our students have the opportunities to go further in their education.”

On Tuesday, September 24, visit the Nancy J. Knight School of Nursing building between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. to see where the program started, watch it’s evolution over the years and be part of a movement forward into the future.
