Nursing program gets donation

MONTROSE — In an effort to enhance and build upon Colorado Mesa University’s nursing program in Montrose, Montrose Memorial Hospital donated $150,000 to CMU officials Wednesday to purchase new nursing equipment.

Renovations to the Montrose campus will begin next summer and will include laboratory and video-conferencing space along with new instructional equipment, which will be purchased over a period of five years.

The satellite campus to CMU currently has 70 nursing students and 300 overall students in various associate- and bachelor-degree programs.

“We heard the community loud and clear when they asked for health care programs at the Montrose campus, and this kind of support from a community partner really enhances what we do in the classroom and in the laboratory,” CMU president Tim Foster said.
