NGTC Nursing Students receive Free Temporal Scanners
North Georgia Technical College (NGTC) registered nursing and practical nursing students recently received a donation of 93 home model TemporalScanners and 10 professional model TemporalScanners from Exergen Corporation of Watertown, MA. Exergen Corporation, a recognized leader in industrial and medical non-invasive temperature technology, manufactures the only non-invasive medically accurate thermometer available for home use that is also backed by more than 100 peer-reviewed, published clinical studies. The Exergen TemporalScanner is used in a variety of medical settings, including clinics; long-term care facilities; and more than half of all U.S. hospitals. Exergen recently launched a program to provide a free home model TemporalScanner to every nursing student across the country to be used at clinicals or at home. They are also providing nursing schools with professional model TemporalScanners for use in their skills labs. “Our registered nursing and practical nursing students and faculty appreciate the generosity of Exergen Corporation,” said NGTC Vice President of Academic Affairs Mindy Glander. “It is evident that Exergen values patient care and is dedicated to supporting and educating the next generation of nurses. We could not be more grateful for this outstanding donation for our college and community.” “On behalf of the college and the NGTC Foundation, we are grateful to receive this donation of TemporalScanners from Exergen Corporation,” said NGTC Vice President of Institutional Advancement and Marketing and Executive Director of the NGTC Foundation Amy Hulsey. “We know that our nursing students and faculty certainly appreciate the support of equipment donations such as this that will keep our students’ lab experiences on the cutting edge.” The Practical Nursing program is available at the Blairsville and Currahee campuses, while the Registered Nursing program is offered at the Blairsville and Clarkesville campuses. NGTC will also offer an LPN to ASN Bridge program at the Currahee campus with the first cohort beginning in January 2024.
