SKCTC Nursing Students Learn from the Past

Cumberland, Ky. –  Nursing Instructors Tina Shoope and Ruth Ellen Arwood, along with a group of freshman RN students, visited Frontier Nursing University in Hyden, Kentucky on Wednesday November 15.  Established by Mary Breckenridge who saw a need in the area for midwives, the university is rich in history. “This trip really inspired our students,” says Shoope, “and they loved learning about the history of nursing in our rural area.”
