Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) and Georgia Military College (GMC) participated in a signing for a new articulation agreement on November 1, 2018 in the Wheatley Administration Building on GSW’s campus. The agreement is designed to ensure a smooth transition from associate degree programs at GMC to GSW’s new Long-Term Care Management (LTCM) program.
“Our nation has a growing number of older adults and individuals with disabilities,” said GSW associate dean and professor Leisa Easom, Ph.D. “The LTCM degree addresses the multi-disciplinary elements in education and training required in the preparation of our healthcare workforce today to meet the needs of these populations.”
Graduates with the LTCM degree will have the managerial, budgetary and communication skills critical to the health management field. The degree prepares graduates to assist patients and families to connect with community resources, transition from hospital to home, and manage the care of residents in an institutional setting.
“We are excited to partner with Georgia Military College in educating the caregivers our aging and disabled communities desperately need,” said GSW president Neal Weaver. “We hope that in simplifying the transition from institution to institution, more students are encouraged to pursue long-term care as a career.”
Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell, IV, President of Georgia Military College, says this partnership with Georgia Southwestern State University will greatly benefit the students at Georgia Military College.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Georgia Southwestern State University to include their bachelor’s degree program in long-term care management that is offered through GSW’s School of Nursing,” Caldwell said. “This expanded partnership will provide additional transfer opportunities for our students to pursue four-year degrees, and provide an excellent opportunity through which GMC graduates can receive training in order to contribute to society as a healthcare professional.”
