Nursing Students Get a Visit from WFBH AirCare Crew


Around 35 nursing students at Surry Community College participated in advanced training when the Wake Forest Baptist Health AirCare flight team visited the Dobson campus. The team members gave a presentation about the service, criteria for transport, and education requirements for each flight team member.

“This is a wonderful addition to the training our students receive in the classroom. Nurses need to know how to categorize care, choose transport options, and make other decisions based on the patient's needs and options available, ” explains Douglas Underwood, PhD, MSN, RN, SCC nursing faculty member.

Nursing students at Surry Community College listen to Wake Forest Baptist Health AirCare flight team members when they came by helicopter to visit the campus.

In addition to the two-year Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) program, Surry offers Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) an opportunity to enroll in a three-semester LPN-ADN bridge program. Surry has also launched two Regionally Increasing Baccalaureate Nurses (RIBN) collaborative programs, (RIBN and LPN-BSN RIBN) with Lees-McCrae College thereby allowing students to obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree without leaving Surry's campus in Dobson.
