Since 2012, Broadway Lodge has been our partner in education by arranging our students with relevant practicum and training opportunities. More specifically, Broadway Lodge has consistently offered our Level I and II licensed practical nursing students with practicum opportunities through preceptorships and intern placements. By being our practicum host, Broadway Lodge has even hired several of our students during the interim license phase of their careers – preparing them for and launching them into their careers.
their clinical capacity, Broadway Lodge requested a monetary donation for a new
oxygen concentrator, which would greatly benefit the care home residents in
need of comprehensive oxygen therapy for their well-being.
For over 7
years, we’ve built a positive relationship with Broadway Lodge, so we were more
than happy to sponsor them with the funding for the oxygen concentrator. This
action has positively impacted the lives of the residents and we are so
thankful that we were able to be a part of this progress.
