University of the Cumberlands receives $1 million dollar donation for School of Nursing
A generous gift by Terry and Marion Forcht is making it possible for students at University of the Cumberlands to better prepare for workforce placement in the medical field upon graduation.
The Forchts are donating $1 million to help establish the Terry & Marion Forcht School of Nursing, which will house a variety of medical programs for the University, including the RN to BSN, Master’s Degree in Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner, certified Nurse Aid course, as well as future nursing-related programs.
“This donation will benefit our students who are considering working in health sciences, especially in nursing-related fields,” said Dr. Larry Cockrum, President of Cumberlands. “We are extremely grateful for the generosity of the Forchts and how their kindness will enable our students to be workforce-ready upon graduation.”
The new Terry and Marion Forcht School of Nursing will include a state-of-the-art simulation lab providing students with hands-on medical training and learning. In addition, the simulation lab will allow the School of Nursing to host continuing education programs for local healthcare professionals.
