MBU Launches Doctor of Nursing Practice Program

“As demand for primary care physicians outpaces the supply, there is wide agreement that doctorally prepared advanced practice nurses are essential to solving the physician shortage and increasing access to healthcare both nationally and right here in the Shenandoah Valley,” said Pamela R. Fox, president of Mary Baldwin University. “The Murphy Deming College of Health Sciences was founded in 2014 to help enhance access to quality healthcare and the DNP is a natural extension of this mission.”

Growing Minds: Creating a School Garden

Flash back to 2018 in the courtyard of Bessie Weller Elementary School in Staunton. A team of MBU students, College of Education faculty, and Bessie Weller students and parents were hard at work building 20 raised garden beds and filling them with new soil. It was the beginning of a new resource for local elementary schoolers where they could experience hands-on how to grow, harvest, and prepare fresh fruits and vegetables.
