The project will be managed by Julie Brunell, RN, PhD, associate vice president of clinical learning at CVPH. Significant efforts have been made for many years by leadership at the Medical Center through tuition reimbursement to encourage RNs to further their education. This endeavor will support CVPH’s strategic plan to improve patient-care outcomes. In addition, this project is in line with New York State pending legislation on RN to BSN requirements within 10 years of graduation and the Institute of Medicine/Robert Wood Johnson Foundation recommendation that 80 percent of RNs in the United States should have a BSN by 2020.

PLATTSBURGH — The North Country Cultural Center for the Arts and the Adirondack Coast Visitors Bureau have unveiled the winner of the second round, called Adirondack Coast Harvest, in its Adirondack Coast ARTWays Project.
Focused on the region’s deep ties to agriculture, 21 entries were submitted, and Amy Guglielmo of Plattsburgh took first place with her artwork entitled “Adirondack Harvest.”
“I try not to take myself seriously and hope that my art makes people smile,” Guglielmo said. “I find inspiration in children’s art and ordinary objects. My paintings and collages are colorful, quirky, folky and funny because that’s how I see the world.”
