School of Nursing honors Betsy Bampton for 50 years of service
The School of Nursing held a celebration at Willow Oaks Country Club last week to honor Betsy Bampton, Ed.D., RNC-E, WHNP (B.S. ’60; Cert. ’80), associate professor emerita, for her 50 years of service to the school. More than 70 faculty, staff, alumni and friends were on hand to celebrate Bampton’s retirement and her impact on the School of Nursing. Bampton grew the RN to B.S. program from its beginnings as a blended program with the traditional B.S. cohort to a weekend and satellite program, and now an online degree program. Her leadership resulted in thousands of graduates of the RN to B.S. program and a cadre of nursing leaders for Virginia. Click here to view a photo album on the School of Nursing Facebook page.
