Medical Practice Pays It Forward to ANU Externs and Graduates

JW Medical LLC is a busy primary care practice that provides the highest quality care to its patients in the Shively community. It’s also a valued partner to the Louisville Campus, frequently accepting externs from the medical assisting program, and often hiring those students to become permanent members of the staff.

In recognition of JW Medical’s support of American National University and its students, Louisville Campus director Vincent Tinebra and director of health science education Bonnie Kiefer recently presented the Distinguished Community Employer Award to nurse practitioner J.W. Harvey and office manager Kevin Luther.

“National has good students and good values in their students.”

When accepting the award, Mr. Luther noted that their current ANU extern, Kenya Tyler, has quickly become an asset to the practice. “She’s only been here a week and a half, and she’s already acclimated and become part [of the team],” he said.

Mr. Harvey first worked with ANU graduates in the previous practice where he worked, and he continues to rely on them now that he’s opened an office of his own. “National has good students and good values in their students,” he stated. “They come in with a great skill set to begin with,” added Mr. Luther.

Mr. Harvey feels that it’s important to mentor students in his community. In addition to accepting externs from the ANU medical assisting program, he also serves as a preceptor for students from a number of area nurse practitioner programs. “We all have to start somewhere.  I was a student at one time, too,” he explained. “We all have to give back to pay it forward.”
