MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – Realizing a growing need among local health care providers to expand training programs throughout the industry, SUNY Orange’s Center for Business Solutions and Professional Development is initiating a new registered nurse (RN) cross-training program, spearheaded by Peg Scribner, a respected educator and health care practitioner with more than 40 years of nursing experience.

The cross-training program, still in its developmental stages, will expand registered nurses’ expertise in areas such as emergency medicine, critical and cardiac care, and perioperative services.

Having just recently retired from her post as chairwoman of the college’s Department of Nursing, Scribner will remain at SUNY Orange as a training and programming consultant. She spent 12 years on the faculty at SUNY Orange and also boasts 15 years of management and supervisory experience in the nursing field. Scribner will focus her efforts on developing and implementing health care training programs for hospitals, long- and short-term care facilities, community health organizations and physicians offices.

Her knowledge and understanding of local workforce needs, and her familiarity with the vast array of opportunities available at SUNY Orange, give her a unique perspective as she strives to assist local health care providers. Her management skills and clinical expertise will also strengthen a wide variety of partnerships SUNY Orange shares with local providers.

"Peg has already proven to be an invaluable resource for us," says David Kohn, SUNY Orange Continuing and Professional Education director. "I can't imagine a more qualified person to help us respond quickly and effectively to area health care providers' training and programming needs."

Training programs are available on-site and on-campus and can be workshops or full programs. For more information about health care training programs being developed, call Donald Green, director of the Center for Business Solutions and Professional Development, at 341-4718.

The SUNY Orange Continuing and Professional Education (CAPE) department provides training and professional development programs for businesses as well as individuals interested in upgrading their marketable skills. CAPE is one of the premier providers in the Hudson Valley for business consulting, training and career advancement.
