The Marsha Fuerst School of Nursing at Glendale Career College Joins with Adventist Health Glendale in Clinical Partnership Program
Partnership Offers Training Opportunities to Keep Nurses on the Leading Edge of Health Care While Equipping Students for Success
GLENDALE, Calif.—The Marsha Fuerst School of Nursing at Glendale Career College (GCC) recently announced a new clinical partnership opportunity with Adventist Health Glendale to provide clinical coaching for the hospital’s nurses.
“We’re incredibly excited about this opportunity to work more closely with Adventist Health Glendale,” explained Dr. Gloria Blatti, GCC’s Executive Dean of Nursing. “We are joining together to help train clinical coaches, and in this capacity these clinical coaches will serve as clinical instructors for our students. Then these clinical coaches will have the opportunity to advance their education and nursing career.”
These clinical coaches will participate in our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program to further advance their nursing career. The program is also available to individuals at Adventist Health Glendale who want to become Registered Nurses and are currently serving in a Certified Nursing Assistant or similar position. It is also open to hospital staff who are already nurses, but are hoping to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing.
“All too often, nurses are asked to serve as clinical instructors as part of their role, but have not been given any formal training to do that well,” Dr. Blatti shared. “We are trying to change that and meet a real need through this new partnership model.”
“We also see this partnership as an innovative way to grow our own faculty at the Marsha Fuerst School of Nursing,” Dr. Blatti said. “Once the hospital’s staff and nurses complete their BSN, our hope is that some would choose to join our team of clinical educators and help us provide the high quality training the College is so well known for.”
