On Thursday, August 29th, Dr. David Zimmerman, campus director of the Harrisonburg Campus, presented the Distinguished Community Employer award to Ms. Hester Fletcher, operating room nursing educator at the University of Virginia Healthcare Center in Charlottesville. Ms. Fletcher is responsible for hosting the campus’s surgical technology students during their externships in the operating rooms at the UVA hospital. Ms. Fletcher stated, “We have thoroughly enjoyed working with the staff and students of National College here at UVA and we are proud of all the wonderful employees we have gained from our relationship with National College.” Student Sarah Greer, said, “Never in my life have I had such an awesome experience, working with so many amazing people who truly love what they do. It is an honor to be here at UVA.” Over the past year, the Harrisonburg Campus has sent ten surgical technology students to UVA for their clinical experiences and in turn, the hospital has hired seven of the students for full-time positions.
