Press release

Aaniiih Nakoda College is once again partnering and collaborating with Phillips County Hospital to give nursing students enrolled in the Associate of Science in nursing program a great clinical experience.

The ASN program at Aaniiih Nakoda College is "growing their own" future registered nurses and the experience provided by a rural community hospital such as Phillips County Hospital gives them hands-on experience working in a rural hospital. Nurses wear many hats and don't just work in one area of the hospital.

Nurses in rural hospitals like PCH work on the inpatient unit, emergency room, and clinic and get a well-rounded experience with health maintenance, providing patient education, and working with patients who are acutely ill or just need urgent care.

ANC is very fortunate to have Clinical Resource Registered Nurses from PCH preceptor the students in their different clinical assignments. Jasmine Crasco and Stacy Crasco are not strangers to this role as they worked with students from ANC last spring. ANC is also very fortunate to have Raeanne Wall, Simulation Lab Coordinator, working with students to certify that they are competent to perform care in all the clinical areas.

Many thanks go out to the Director of Nursing and Clinic/ER Supervisor Lonna and Karyn for assisting with providing the students a varied and exciting clinical rotation. Ward VanWichen, CEO, FACHE, has also been very instrumental in assisting us, as an advisor to ANC's ASN program, and for coordinating our clinical rotations and feeding our students.
