Wendy Wood Neeson has been named the new Edward A. Whitney Endowed Nursing Chair for the Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) by the University of Wyoming (UW).

Whitney Benefits created the endowment in 2006 at Sheridan College to enrich nursing and nursing education in the community. Establishing a collaboration between UW and Sheridan College, the appointment of an endowed nursing chair provides face-to-face advising and academic support for students pursuing higher education in health science through the NWCCD and UW.

Neeson’s own nursing background began at Sheridan College where she graduated from the nursing program before completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in nursing. She is now a practicing family nurse practitioner in Sheridan.

David Bodily, UW Nursing RN-BSN Completion and ReNEW Program director, tells UWYO.edu, “The Endowed Nursing Chair creates a significant opportunity for students in the Northern Wyoming Community College District (NWCCD) service area. We know this position increases the numbers of students completing bachelor’s degrees, and we know this is an advantage to the communities where these professionals serve. We couldn’t be happier to begin working with Wendy for the benefit of our students.”
