Happy New Year from Roseman University’s Henderson campus. I’m happy to share that we have started 2021 with a lot of activity on our campus.
On behalf of everyone at the Henderson campus, I’d like to begin this month’s campus report by welcoming to the Roseman University family the 32 new students of the February 2021 cohort starting the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program this week. We’re excited you have joined Roseman to pursue a career in the nursing profession and we are here to teach and support you along the way. As we offer a warm welcome to these ambitious students, we must also congratulate the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Class of 2021 who will graduate later this month, prepare to take the NCLEX licensure exam and enter the nursing workforce. We are very proud of what each and every member of the class has accomplished in their 18 months at Roseman and we are eager to see them succeed. While they are leaving our classrooms, labs and hallways to enter the next chapter of their lives, it is also gratifying to know that they will become our heath care heroes and always be Roseman University Roadrunners!
I’d like to also take this opportunity to thank all of the Roseman students, residents and employees who have devoted hundreds of volunteer hours helping to vaccinate Southern Nevadans in an effort to end the COVID-19 pandemic. They are working tirelessly at clinics across the Las Vegas Valley and even on Roseman campuses to vaccinate as many people as possible.
Please also join me in congratulating the College of Pharmacy’s Dr. Leiana Oswald and Dr. Michelle Hon who have been awarded a $65,000 Dignity Health Community Grant to expand the outcomes of the on-campus Medicare Call Lab. Through a partnership with Nevada’s State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), the Medicare Call Lab offers a much-need service to our community. Volunteer student pharmacists from the Roseman University chapter of the American Society of Consultant Pharmacists (ASCP) answer phone calls from Medicare beneficiaries and provide unbiased information to help them make informed decisions about their Medicare enrollment and coverage options. The goal of the lab is to help beneficiaries enroll in the most cost-effective plan to meet their individual needs. Since its inception 2015, the Medicare Care Lab has saved local Medicare beneficiaries nearly $2 million.
Finally, I’d like to remind everyone in our community that even during the COVID-19 pandemic it’s important to continue your needed dental care. Roseman University’s dental and orthodontic clinics in Henderson are open. They are practicing safety protocols to provide safe places for all of your dental needs. I invite you to learn more or to schedule appointments by visiting rosemandental.com.
