CHIPOLA NURSING STUDENTS TRAIN ON HIGH TECH PATIENT

 

            MARIANNA—Chipola College nursing students recently got firsthand experience in a medical emergency scenario using a new human patient simulator. 

            The future nurses found themselves in a mock emergency room with a young child in breathing distress along with a panicked and somewhat-challenging mother. 

            The students performed basic tasks such as taking patient history, checking vitals, drawing blood and starting IV fluids.  As the trauma progressed the students were faced with decisions regarding the course of care in a deteriorating situation. Students had to decide which medications to administer and make quantity conversions for a child. 

            According to Lucinda Graven, Assistant Professor of Nursing, the scenario helped the students gain valuable experience in making quick and decisive decisions in a stressful environment.

            “The Pedisim simulator can be adjusted to suit the education point of the student.  The medical issues and training are basic in the initial semester and progressively increase in difficulty as the students move through the program,” said Graven.

            Jackson Hospital employees Tracy Mears and Amy Samson played a major role in setting up the patient simulator and evaluating the scenario for the Chipola students.

            Funds for the human patient simulator came from a Succeed! Florida Nursing Profession grant. Chipola was awarded a total of $253,000 to help introduce nursing students to real life medical situations with three human simulators, including a male and female adult. The Pedisim human patient simulator can breathe, bleed and talk just like a real patient.

            For information regarding entrance requirements to the Chipola nursing program, call 850-718-2278.

RENTZ IS CHIPOLA FACULTY MEMBER OF THE YEAR

 

MARIANNA—English professor Pam Rentz of Sneads recently was named the Chipola College Faculty/Administrator of the year.

In her regular job Rentz teaches college students the importance of writing clearly and using good grammar and punctuation; but the lessons she teaches after class may be more important.

Rentz serves as faculty adviser to the college chapter of the Phi Theta Kappa, the international honor society for two-year colleges. Like most honor societies, good grades are required to join PTK, but service learning is the group’s main focus.

            Rentz leads Chipola students in various community service projects each year, but “Project Prom” may be the most intriguing. Rentz led Chipola volunteers to Bay St. Louis High School in Mississippi where they helped put on the Junior/Senior prom. Chipola students collected prom gowns and decorations and helped organize the prom for students at the hurricane-ravaged high school.

            Chipola students participated in a number of service programs. The “Behind the Scenes” program encouraged reading and creative expression among middle school students. The Leaders of Promise Conference offered a day of leadership activities and seminars for area eleventh graders. The Senior Leadership Conference with SGA provides leadership activities for area seniors.         

            The Chipola chapter of PTK was named the Most Distinguished Chapter of the Florida Region this year and has won numerous international recognitions.

            Rentz also has been involved in Chipola’s Quality Enhancement Program (QEP) for SACS re-accreditation.

            Rentz’s supervisor Dr. Sarah Clemmons, says, “Mrs. Rentz is respected by students, peers, and administrators for her dedication to service learning experiences for students.  Her involvement of students and the college in projects to serve the community and the nation earned her much special recognition and appreciation by all.”

            Rentz has taught English courses at the college since 2005. She formerly taught at Sneads High School. She is a Chipola alumnus who earned a B.A. from the University of West Florida and an M.S. from Nova Southeastern University.

            Rentz and her husband Bill have two children. Their daughter Paige is a Chipola alumnus, a member of the Chipola Academic Hall of Fame and a graduate of Sarah Lawrence College. Their son Chase is a senior at Sneads High who is dual enrolled at Chipola.

CHIPOLA GETS HIGH MARKS ON STATE ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT

 

            MARIANNA—Chipola College is doing an outstanding job of recruiting students and preparing them for university work or professional careers according to the Florida Division of Community Colleges’ 2007 Accountability Report.

            Chipola enrolled 42% of the 927 district high school graduates from 2005, exceeding the state average of 31%. Chipola recruited its two major ethnic groups much more successfully than most Florida community colleges. African-American students were recruited at a 45% rate, compared to 28% statewide. White students were recruited at a 41% rate, exceeding the average rate of 30% statewide.

            Chipola graduates also outperformed other community colleges graduates after transferring to a state university. Chipola's146 transfer students earned an overall GPA of 3.30 in the SUS, which exceeded the state average of 2.93.

            Chipola also achieved success with under-prepared students. Chipola graduates who required college prep/remedial courses earned a 3.39 GPA in the SUS, compared to a 2.87 GPA for college prep transfers from other community colleges.

            Chipola’s Vocational Placement rate also was outstanding for the 2004-05 school year. Placement is defined as training-related by virtue of related work, continuing education, or enlisted in the military. A total of 233 students completed Chipola’s vocational programs in 2004-05 with a 100 percent placement rate. And all of the 93 vocational students who left the college in 2004-05 without completing their programs were also designated as placed.  Correction Officer training was the largest vocational program with 80 graduates, followed by Firefighting with 37 and Nursing with 36 graduates.

            Numbers from the State Accountability report were compiled in the latest issue of Chipola Facts, a monthly report published jointly by the Chipola Offices of Development/Planning and Information Systems/Technology. Gail Hartzog, Chipola Associate Dean of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning, says, “The Accountability Report is one of many reports which give evidence that student learning at Chipola compares favorably with other colleges across the state and nation.”

            For information about this report, contact Hartzog at (850) 718-2342.

CHIPOLA BECOMES STATE COLLEGE

 

                MARIANNA—With the expected signature of Florida Governor Charlie Crist on June 12, Chipola College will officially become a State College.

                The signing ceremony will be in the Mattie Kelley Fine Arts Center at Okaloosa-Walton College in Niceville.

                Chipola is one of nine community colleges in the State College pilot project established for Florida community colleges which offer four-year degrees. The list of State Colleges include: Chipola College, Daytona Beach College, Edison College, Indian River College, Miami Dade College, Okaloosa-Walton College, Polk College, Santa Fe College and St. Petersburg College.

                Chipola president Dr. Gene Prough, said, “This is an important day in the life of Chipola College. As a state college, we will be able to expand our offerings to provide more opportunities to the people in our district and beyond.”

State Colleges are established in Senate Bill 1716 which creates the new Florida College System consisting of institutions that grant 2-year and 4-year academic degrees.        The bill was initiated by House of Representatives Speaker-Designate Rep. Ray Sansom, R-Destin. “We are appreciative of Gov. Crist’s interest in this important legislation,” said Sansom. “As a result of this new law, nine community colleges will be eligible to expand more easily the number of bachelor’s degree programs they offer. This means more students in Florida will be able to access higher education degrees, especially in academic areas where the demand for educated workers is exceeding the supply. We expect these programs to be more affordable and cost-effective than those at the state university level—and that’s another benefit to both the taxpayers and the students.”

The newly-created Florida College System is a middle-tier system of higher education which is expected to maximize student access to baccalaureate degrees, respond to community needs for postsecondary education, and provide the degrees that best meet Florida’s employment needs.

                The bill creates the Florida College System Task Force, comprised of community college presidents and others with expertise in higher education in Florida, to develop recommendations for establishing and funding state colleges, including a program approval process for new baccalaureate degree programs, a funding model that ensures cost-effective delivery with substantial savings to the student and the state over the cost of providing degrees at state universities, and identification of geographic and academic areas of need for degree programs.

                Community colleges will be eligible to use the “State College” designation with approval of their local Board of Trustees. State colleges must maintain open-door admissions in associate-level and workforce programs and continue to provide outreach to underserved populations and remedial education. State colleges also must comply with the statewide articulation agreement and require the CLAST exam for associate degrees and admission to junior level.

                State colleges are prohibited from using the term “university” and from granting graduate degrees. Intercollegiate athletics for state colleges will remain at the two-year level. State Colleges also must provide cost-effective delivery with substantial savings over state university system costs.

                Chipola College was founded in 1947 to provide the first two years of college and workforce programs for residents of the five-county district of Calhoun, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty and Washington Counties.  In 2002, Chipola and Miami Dade became the second and third Florida community colleges authorized to offer bachelor’s degrees. Chipola originally was approved to offer degrees in Secondary Education with majors in math and science. Since that time, dozens teachers have graduated from Chipola to begin careers in area middle and high schools. Chipola now offers a total of eight bachelor’s degrees, including: Elementary Education, Exceptional Student Education and Nursing which were approved in February.  A Bachelor’s of Applied Science degree in Business Management began classes in January of 2008.

                College president Dr. Gene Prough said, “Chipola has been providing opportunities to the people of this area since 1947. I am so proud that, 61 years later, we are still working to expand the opportunities for our students.” 

                For information about Chipola’s four-year programs, call the New Baccalaureate Hotline (850) 718-2492, or visit: www.chipola.edu
