4 New Articulation Agreement Streamlines RN to BSN Surry Community College Nursing students train in a simulation lab purchased through a Golden Leaf Foundation grant. The lab consists of three high fidelity patient simulators as well as 15 other simulation manikins. Each manikin has the ability to make lung sounds, heart sounds and bowel sounds. The high fidelity manikins also have the capabilities to sense when nasal cannulas are placed in their noses for oxygen administration or when students administer intravenous medication. Student Lee Ann Muller performs a physical assessment on the patient while student Adrian Billings obtains a set of vital signs by using the touch screen monitors. 2 Students at Surry Community College can complete the RN program and then easily transfer to any of the 11 colleges in the UNC System that offer Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) programs due to a supplemental transfer agreement that goes into effect fall Students can earn their RN, and then work as a nurse while finishing their BSN, said Dr. Yvonne Johnson, Associate Dean of Health Sciences at Surry Community College. The State Board of Community Colleges and the UNC Board of Governors signed a uniform articulation agreement in February specifically for nursing, which provides seamless education pathways for students wishing to pursue advanced nursing degrees. In the process, the agreement helps address the needs of both employees and employers by building a pipeline of skilled, talented citizens for promising careers. A report published in 2010 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and Institute of Medicine recommended increasing the proportion of nurses with a baccalaureate degree to 80 percent by 2020 to meet the evolving demands of the health care industry. The articulation agreement creates uniform requirements for students moving between North Carolina s two public higher education systems and will help students shorten the time to degree completion and eliminate the need for multiple agreements between institutions. Prior to the agreement, students could apply to multiple RN-BSN programs, and each school might have different requirements that effectively excluded students from applying or required students to take additional or duplicative courses. High school students can get a head start on a career as Nurse Aides or take care of prerequisites to enter the Nursing program at Surry Community College. Juniors and seniors can complete the Nurse Aide program tuition free while still in high school through the dual enrollment program called Career and College Promise. Nurse Aides are the eyes and ears of nursing. They are with the patients more than anyone, said Debbie Cave, RN, Program Director for Nurse Aide (CNA) and Related Programs at SCC. Students who complete Surry s Nurse Aide program have a huge potential for employment because of an increasing need for qualified employees. Nurse Aides work in a variety of healthcare settings such as long-term care, assisted living, home health, hospice, hospitals, and private duty, Cave said. The Bureau of Labor Statistics indicate that the number of Nurse Aides is expected to grow by 20 percent from 2010 to 2020, faster than the average for all occupations. Due to the growing elderly population, many Nurse Aides will be needed in long-term care facilities, such as nursing homes. The Nurse Aide certification is required to enter the Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) or Licensed Practical Nursing (LPN) program. Students must also be listed on the NC Health Care Personnel Registry website as Nurse Aides who have passed the statewide exam. The LPN diploma at Surry Community College takes one-year to complete. Graduates are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-PN), which is required for practice as an LPN. Nursing Salary Breakdown* Nurse Aides: $11.97 per hour or $24,890 per year Practical Nurses: $20.15 per hour or $41,920 per year Registered Nurses $31.84 per hour or $66,220 per year *Salaries may vary for reasons including, but not limited, to years of experience, place of employment and specific occupations within each industry.

5 Student David Kiger is demonstrating professional interdisciplinary communication by calling to inform the doctor of abnormal physical assessment findings and abnormal lab results. He is also asking the doctor for any further patient orders. Also pictured are students Amber Bingman and Colleen Welborn. The Surry LPN program surpasses both state and national averages for graduates who are successful on their licensure exam the first time taken. Students of Surry s Practical Nursing program have a three-year average pass rate on NCLEX-PN of 100 percent. This can be compared with a three-year national pass rate of 84 percent and a three-year pass rate for North Carolina of 80 percent. Students who are already Licensed Practical Nurses can do the evening option LPN-ADN program to earn their associate s degree. Graduates of the ADN or LPN-ADN are eligible to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). The Associate Degree program including LPN-ADN at Surry Community College surpasses the average pass rates on the NCLEX-RN in North Carolina and the nation. Surry graduates have a three-year average pass rate of 90 percent, compared with a three-year pass rate of 85 percent in the nation and 81 percent in North Carolina. With the Affordable Health Care Act implementation and recent data figures showing that this region is going to have a shortage of physicians, nurses will be seen taking on a larger role in health care, and this will especially be true for advanced practice nurses, Johnson said. Employment opportunities for nurses are vast within the global health care system and may include positions within acute, chronic, extended, industrial, and community health care facilities. There s just a wide range of areas where nurses can practice, Johnson said. Part of the beauty of nursing is there are so many different areas of practice that nurses can challenge themselves throughout their careers by transitioning to direct patient care, care coordination, administration or research. The field is wide open. Nursing education is also a talent area that is needed in the region. There is much diversity in the types and areas of nursing. Each area offers differing work schedules and some even afford flexible scheduling. The admission process for nursing is based on a competitive point system that can be viewed on. The TEAS test is required along with a minimum GPA of 2.5 for college classes or 3.0 for high school classes. There is no longer a waiting list each student has an equal chance of being admitted each fall, Johnson said. The Nursing programs (LPN, LPN-ADN and ADN) at Surry Community College have received full approval from the NC Board of Nursing, which means that SCC is in good academic standing offering a rigorous program where students are being educated appropriately to meet requirements for the national licensure exam, Johnson explained. For more information about any of the Nursing programs at SCC, contact Dr. Yvonne Johnson at (336) or edu.

6 Medical Assisting Profession is Booming 4 Student Jennifer Pyles takes student Brooklyn Tucker s blood pressure during a Medical Assisting class at Surry Community College. The demand for medical assistants is expected to grow 29 percent between , according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Medical assistants are trained to do basic things such as checking in the patient, obtaining patient history, performing certain diagnostic tests, giving injections and drawing blood, said Carol Roberts, Director of the Medical Assisting program at Surry Community College. Medical assistants can work on both the clinical and office side. They can operate all aspects of the office. The medical assistant is perfectly suited for a physician s office. Kala Haynes, a May 2014 graduate of Surry Community College, knows firsthand the growing need for medical assistants. She participated in the college graduation ceremony last year on May 15, knowing that her first day on the job as a medical assistant at Harmony Medical Care, Harmony, N.C., would be May 20. She received her certification in June after taking the national exam. I use more clinical skills with my job, Haynes said. That s more of my thing. I like working with the patients and conducting different types of tests. I also do medical coding, insurance, and do outgoing patient appointment scheduling along with referrals. On the job, Haynes has been trained to do X-rays. I do the same thing as an X-ray tech would do. I take X-rays and send them to the radiologist. I also do blood draws, monitor Coumadin patients, and assist with CDL physicals. I stay busy that s for sure. I love it. I am really happy with my career choice. No two days are ever the same. Haynes was fresh out of high school at 19 when she was accepted into the Medical Assisting program at Surry. My original plan was nursing. Then, I quickly learned that I wanted administrative skills as well as clinical. You can go further in administration than clinical. I wanted to be able to offer both sides of the table in order to be more valuable in the job market. Haynes enjoyed her time at Surry Community College. It was a huge learning curve for me. I had a little bit of clinical experience. I had never drawn blood or conducted an EKG or pulmonary function test (lung capacity test). It taught me the skills needed, and it was a great learning experience for me. It was also different every day in the classroom. The teachers were great and helped me outside of the classroom as well. Students can earn an associate in applied science degree in Medical Assisting at Surry Community College. The program takes two years and requires a clinical internship. Program graduates take the American Association of Medical Assistants Certification Exam. It s a great opportunity for students, Roberts said. The jobs are there. Medical assistants may become office managers after obtaining some experience. More medical employees will need certification due to the increased use of the electronic health records. The Health Care Reform Act requires that medical assistants entering information into the electronic health record be certified. The path to certification as a medical assistant is obtaining an associate s degree in medical assisting, and then sitting for the national certification examination. Surry Community College has developed a new admission process for Medical Assistants with stringent guidelines based on a point count worksheet. Thirty slots will be available each year. The fall 2015 admission deadline is June 30. Students who want to become medical assistants need to be self-motivated team players and able to handle stress because they will be dealing with sick patients every day. They also need to be professional, compassionate, positive, friendly and outgoing. They need to really care about what they are doing. They have to have a servant s heart, Roberts said. Medical Assisting students have ranged in age from 19 to 60 years old. This is a good profession for a stay-at-home mom who wants to re-enter the workplace or for someone who has lost their job and wants to be retrained, said Roberts, who did just that. She had worked at the ticket counter for an airline when her job was downsized. She went back to school and reinvented herself professionally as a medical assistant and then became an educator in the field. Medical assistants work in physician offices, health maintenance organizations, health departments and hospitals. They earn $14.24 per hour or $29,610 on average annually. For more information on Medical Assisting, contact Carol Roberts at (336) or Program and admission information is listed on.

7 Medical Office Administration: No Needles Required Louise Hatcher uses Medisoft, which is the practice management software that Surry Community College students learn to use in the Medical Office Administration program. Students who want to work in the medical field, but do not want to administer medical care can earn a degree in Medical Office Administration at Surry Community College, which focuses on administrative healthcare work. It takes a lot to run a medical office checking patients in and out, setting appointments, and doing the billing and insurance claim work, said Mitzi Poore, lead instructor for the Medical Office Administration and Office Administration programs at SCC. Medical Office Administration gives students the technologyoriented skills needed to run a medical office. Terri Hayes of East Bend graduated in May 2012 with a degree in Medical Office Administration from Surry Community College. She is currently working as a Patient Service Coordinator III at Novant Health Forsyth Pediatrics, Winston-Salem. Before obtaining full-time employment, she worked PRN (Pro Re Nata) or as needed for six months when she was trained to work in four different medical offices. I love my job here, Hayes said. The people I work with are awesome, and I enjoy what I do. I am not doing the same thing every day. I work the front desk and check patients in and out. I answer the phone and schedule wellness visits and handle referrals. Hayes was 33 when she decided to attend Surry. She had been a waitress for seven years and then worked as an administrative assistant for two years until she was laid off. She decided the medical field would be an area that would provide job security. It was hard losing my job because I had a family, and I didn t know what I was going to do. I looked for several jobs, said the mother of two. My friends encouraged me to go back to school. I liked the idea of the medical field, but I didn t want to take blood samples. So medical administration suited me. Her children and family members were at the graduation to see her walk across the stage with academic honors. I really enjoyed the program. I didn t think I would enjoy college because I didn t enjoy high school, Hayes said. However, I met my best friend in the whole wide world in college. The classes were good, and they taught me a lot. There were days when it was a little rough having children to take care of along with homework and housework. Hayes took advantage of taking classes online when she needed to be with her kids who were then 10 and 15 years old. The teachers were really good about answering questions with the online classes as well as the seated classes. I even had an English teacher who helped me outside of class with papers for other classes, Hayes said. Going back to school is well worth it, and the teachers are there to help you no matter what. They have your best interest in mind. If I can do it with two kids and a household to run, I think anybody can do it especially with me being over 30 and returning to school. High school students can earn a certificate in Medical Office Administration by taking six classes tuition-free through Career and College Promise. These students then have a jumpstart on obtaining their diploma or degree in Medical Office Administration. No board certification is required in this field, so after graduation students can hit the ground running. Students may also want to consider a double major in Office Administration since the programs are closely aligned. They can take several more classes and easily have another two-year degree to add to their resumes. Medical Office Administration focuses on medical terminology, medical transcription, medical coding, insurance and electronic medical records whereas the Office Administration program includes classes on the management principles, personal finance and introduction to business. A work-based learning internship is required as part of the programs, which gives students hands-on experience while earning college credit. Tracy Moreno inputs data into Medisoft during a Medical Office Administration exercise. There is a big move in medicine to electronic medical records, Poore said. We are very technology-centered and stay abreast of what s coming in the medical field. Empathy and people skills are a must for students who want to pursue careers in Medical Office Administration where they will work in dental, medical or hospital settings and come in contact with patients on a daily basis. Options are also available if graduates like medical administration work, but do not want to work directly with patients. Insurance clearinghouses perform quality control work on claims and never see patients, Poore explained. Medical Office Administrators earn an average salary of $15.33 per hour or $31,890 per year based on the level of experience, according to Onet.com.

8 6 Physical Therapist Assistants Experience Gratifying Work Student Ginny Brassfield examines Eric Willey s wrist mobility. Willey is a PTA instructor at Surry Community College. The pay of a Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) is lucrative at $53,360 per year on average, according to Onet.com, but Surry Community College graduates say the intrinsic rewards are the real value. I love my job. It s so rewarding, said Tammy Hawks of Mount Airy, a May 2012 PTA graduate of Surry. Seeing people who are immobilized be able to walk again is amazing. Hawks, who works as the rehabilitation director at the Yadkin Nursing Center, shared some examples of patients who had overcome major hurdles. One patient came to the facility as a totally dependent patient, and after a year of physical therapy, she is now able to walk. One patient was 80 years old and had hip replacement surgery, and after three months of physical therapy was able to return to work as a cashier. Another hip replacement patient was 94 and underwent successful physical therapy. She later returned to the nursing center to bring the staff baked apple pies. Just to see her walk in was incredible. It is amazing to see what therapy can do, Hawks said. What we do is so rewarding. You get to touch and feel it and see it. It s just so amazing to be a part of that. Hawks did not like the idea of working at a nursing home at first, but now she could never see herself doing anything else. I love the nursing home setting. We are with the patient up to 75 minutes per day. You get to know them, and you have to deal with the emotional along with the physical, Hawks said. Or course, there are hard times too where you see people who don t recover. Giving people back their independence is gratifying. The things that people take for granted in everyday life, such as going to bathroom by themselves, are tremendous for a patient who has undergone a debilitating experience, she said. When you lose your independence, it affects you in so many different ways. We try to give the mobility and independence back to people so they have a better quality of life. Hawks had been a textile employee for 19 years before entering the PTA program when she was 39 years old. She was married with two children, who were then 14 and 11. She also has a Medical Office Administration degree from Surry that she obtained at night while she was working full-time in textiles. I loved the programs at Surry Community College. I am so happy that I went there, Hawks said. It s not easy to have kids and go to school. My kids and I would do our homework together during family time. They even helped me study with flashcards. You have to be dedicated because it is not easy. I kept a book in my hand for three years. You have to really want it and focus. You can t be lazy. You have to put 150 percent in your schooling. You have to have good grades to even get in the program. Corey Moser knew he wanted to help people through his profession. He is a May 2014 SCC graduate who is currently employed as a PTA at Davie Medical Center in Advance, N.C., nearby his home. As a high school student, Moser suffered a disabling knee injury when playing basketball at Surry Central High School that resulted in three surgeries. Later in college, he had an accident where his ankle had to be reconstructed due to a mishap on wet grass. When going through my own personal injuries, I really needed help with physical therapy because I didn t know what to do. I needed help being guided through it. I was constantly taking physical therapy and also treating myself as I went along, Moser said. This personal experience helped Moser decide to go into the physical therapy field. He had already completed a degree in Exercise Science from Appalachian State University before attending Surry.

9 PTA Program: Exciting Part of the Medical Field The field of physical therapy is innovative and never boring for graduates who experience a 100-percent employment placement rate. It s an exciting field. It s ever changing, said Eileen Coleman, Program Director of the Physical Therapist Assistant (PTA) program at Surry Community College. New practice areas are always cropping up, and there s such a variety of different work environments. PTAs are able to obtain specialty certifications to increase their employability. Coleman knows first hand what the industry is dictating because she worked in a clinical setting for 29 years and owned her own physical therapy company for two decades employing therapists in the area. This is her third year at SCC. The Physical Therapist Assistant Degree program is competitive with a 16-seat cap. Admissions is a selective process based on a points ranking worksheet that can be found on. GPA, test scores and credit for other health-related courses such as massage therapy, exercise physiology are weighted. Students start the program and stay with their cohort for five semesters before graduating and taking the licensure examination administered by the NC Board of Physical Therapy Examiners. Three varied clinical internships are required, which give students a true picture of a PTA s work life. PTA students need to be empathetic with good oral and written communication skills and have an interest in health sciences, Coleman said. Someone who is self-motivated, detail oriented, an efficient time manager and a life-long learner will do well in this field. PTAs work under the direction and supervision of a physical therapist and are employed in acute hospital settings, in-patient rehabilitation units, skilled nursing facilities, outpatient clinics, school systems, and home health agencies. Students in the PTA program come right out of high school or have entered the program as adult learners who want to pursue a different career. Student ages have ranged from 19 to 58 years old. For more information on the PTA program at SCC, contact Eileen Coleman, at (336) or PTA students learn how to measure radial deviation with a goniometer at Surry Community College. Continued from page 6 Helping people get back to doing what they loved to do or what they need to do is what I love about my job. It means everything. It s nice to be a part of it. A lot of their success is due to the work they put in at home, but I get to watch them progress and help them along, said Moser, who began his career at Northern Hospital of Surry County before being hired at Davie. I also like the diversity. I get to see everything in my setting, so I am always fine tuning my skills. Moser sees 11 patients a day with various ailments including orthopedic and neuromuscular challenges. He has also helped people recover from strokes, gunshot wounds and motor vehicle accidents. The PTA program at Surry was a wonderful experience. It was fantastic. I couldn t have asked for better instructors. They were always ready to answer questions, Moser said, who entered the program at 25. You get out of it what you put into it. It s not a field that comes easily to anyone. If you have a desire to help people and always want to learn more, then it is absolutely the best field for you. Anyone can learn the anatomy, but you have to want to help people at the core level. Lone Weatherman, a resident of Glade Valley, N.C., who is originally from Denmark, graduated from Surry s PTA program in May 2013, and started working right after graduation at Choice Physical Therapy, Mount Airy. It s a great career. It took me a year to not feel guilty about taking a paycheck. I love it. It s the best thing that I have ever done. I have never done anything else this rewarding, Weatherman said. She has a bachelor s degree in Socio-Education and had been employed as a childcare center director and worked for social services in Davidson County. She then stayed at home with her three children and started thinking about going back to school. Surry was the obvious choice based on convenience. While going to school, she was busy raising children and working part-time. She was 42 years old at the time. It s rewarding to see patients from the day that they are on intake then progress to discharge when they reach their goals. It s very gratifying. They have very determined goals with what they want to become functional at. It s a joint effort. We throw things at them, and they take it and run with it that s the beauty of this job. Weatherman spoke of a stroke victim whom she worked with for six months, twice a week. His muscles were seizing, which was causing him to be immobilized, but now he can walk and use his arm after undergoing physical therapy. We tailor a program with the patient on what they can do at home by themselves and then change it as they master certain things, she said. The PTA program was a good challenge for Weatherman. You have definitely earned your seat. It was a bumpy ride at times. It was challenging and very engaging. It demanded a lot of you as a student. I had excellent instructors in the program and also while working on the prerequisites. I would absolutely recommend the PTA program at Surry Community College. 7
