South Jordan Report – February 2022
Greetings from Roseman University, the first South Jordan Report of 2022! Here at Roseman we are starting the year fresh with innovative programs and community service projects.
As a University focused on serving our community, we are dedicated to helping those in need. Many people have delayed dental care during the pandemic, which can potentially lead to more severe dental problems in the future. Roseman Dental, the clinical practice of Roseman University College of Dental Medicine is pleased to offer new and existing patients a voucher to be used towards the cost of their comprehensive or periodic exam and necessary radiographs up to $119.00 and an additional $100.00 for needed dental care. The offer runs from Monday, February 7, 2022, through Monday, March 7, 2022. Initial appointments must be scheduled and completed during this period. This program offers a financial incentive to seek care, and it offers our dental students and faculty the opportunity to serve more patients. To date, I am proud to share that since launching the College of Dental Medicine in 2012, through Roseman Dental it has provided more than $1,341,000 in free dental care to Utah residents.

We are excited to announce The College of Nursing has expanded its offering of nursing degree programs with the launch of a 9-month (35-week) RN (Registered Nurse) to BSN (Bachelor of Science in Nursing) program. The college is now enrolling its first class to start in September 2022. The RN to BSN program, along with the College of Nursing’s existing Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing, offered with two learning modalities, on-campus or hybrid-online with four cohorts per year, and a 23-month full-time online Master of Science in Nursing – Family Nurse Practitioner program with two cohorts per year, offer nursing students educational and career advancement opportunities in numerous stages of their careers. Information about the Roseman University RN to BSN program can be found online at nursing.roseman.edu.
Pharmacy Day at the Utah State capitol building is today, February 9. Our students from the College of Pharmacy are heading to the Utah capitol building to educating legislators and their staff on the role and skills of a pharmacist while also highlight need for legislative change on certain healthcare topics. To do this, groups of pharmacy students put together advocacy posters and health screening tables. At the health screening tables, students will be providing blood pressure screenings, cholesterol screenings, diabetes screenings, asthma screenings, and cardiovascular risk assessments. The health screenings are educational tools to show legislators that pharmacists are well educated healthcare providers that can help with our state’s healthcare gaps. Giving pharmacist prescribing rights or improving reimbursement for clinical services will allow pharmacists to help other healthcare providers. Follow along their day on our Instagram account @rosemanuhs, pharmacy student Erin Frohnapfel will be showing you all the posters, health screening options, and the beautiful capitol building itself.
Wishing you a safe and healthy February.
