flightPath The pandemic brought our healthcare industry to the forefront in the past year. Because our College provides a steady pipeline of employees to hospitals, surgical centers, medical offices, and specialty centers, it was of utmost importance that our classes continued.

Student Health Care On the Go

Sandhills to Offer Students an Affordable Health Care Option

Sandhills Community College has entered into a partnership with FirstHealth to provide telehealth services to curriculum students. If needed, a prescription for medications can be submitted by the provider. Typical reasons students may use the service would be for a cold, the flu, allergies, sexual health screening, asthma, sinus infections, pink eye, and other health issues. The majority of the contacts will be with local physicians through a mobile app, computer, or phone. One face-toface visit is included with an annual subscription. The platform is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week, and an appointment is not needed.

Mickey Foster, CEO of FirstHealth of the Carolinas and SCC President John Dempsey formalize the new partnership with a friendly elbow bump.

Sandhills students can choose to participate in the annual program at the start of the fall, spring, or summer semesters. The cost will be $120 per year.

Retired SCC Nursing faculty Trish Dykeman and Pam Garty administered COVID-19 vaccinations on campus to SCC students enrolled in the Nursing and Health Sciences programs.

New Nursing and Health Sciences Facility Construction Set to Begin Soon on Foundation Hall Sandhills Community College broke ground on April 20 for the new home of the Nursing and Health Sciences programs. Inspired by a statement by Stan Bradshaw and honoring a gift from the Stan and Jean Bradshaw Foundation, the facility will be named Foundation Hall. The striking architecture of the 35,154 square foot one-story structure will be built as an extension of Kennedy Hall and will blend perfectly with the design of both older and newer structures on campus. In 2018, the citizens of Moore County voted to approve the sale and issuance of $20 million in general obligation bonds for the College to increase the square footage needed to teach Nursing and other Health Sciences. The Stan and Jean Bradshaw Foundation also presented the College with a gift to be used toward the facility.

“Education is the foundation of a purposeful life and medical services are the foundation of a strong community. There is no more important work than what will take place in Foundation Hall.” Stan Bradshaw Foundation Board Member 8

Projected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2022, the first classes will be held spring semester of 2023. The building will be constructed on the north end of Kennedy Hall where the Gauguin parking lot is currently located. Once the new building is completed, Kennedy Hall will see a renovation of classrooms, labs, restrooms, and the fire alarm and sprinkler systems. New floors, ceilings, and lighting will be installed, and all walls will receive a fresh coat of paint. Foundation Hall, combined with Kennedy Hall, will bring the facility’s square footage for health sciences and nursing education to 75,000. The entrance to Foundation Hall will have an entrance lobby with a large student commons area that leads to a dramatic, naturally lit corridor connecting the new building to Kennedy Hall. Students will be taught in 11 classrooms and can utilize ten labs, two computer labs, and a study area. There will be eight restrooms, 22 storage rooms, 47 offices, two lounges/ workrooms, and three conference rooms. The Department of Nursing area will consist of nine stateof-the-art simulation rooms with control rooms, four debriefing rooms, a faculty room, a prep area, and a large skills lab. The lab will be named The Terri McCaskill Stafford Nursing Skills Lab in honor of a gift from Ollie and Wanda Sweeney and Harlan McCaskill in memory of Wanda and Harlan’s aunt. The nursing simulation wing will be named The DiNapoli Nursing Simulation Center, honoring Len and Rita DiNapoli. Rita is a current Foundation Board member. Within this wing, there will be several simulation labs. One will honor college friends and board members Bob and Connie Lovell. Bob is a member of the College’s Foundation Board and Connie is a member of the College’s Board of Trustees. Another will be named for John and Nancy Ellis. Dr. John Ellis spent most of his career as a medical leader with FirstHealth. Nancy has been a member of the Sandhills Community College Foundation Board since 1998, serving in the past as both Chair and Vice-Chair. Another lab will honor Nancy Ellis’s parents Paul and Miriam Borel. The nursing faculty office wing, conference room, and workspace suite will be named The Doug and Ellen Leslie Nursing Education Faculty Wing. Additionally, the FirstHealth Professor of Clinical Nursing Education at Sandhills Community College will be honored in this area. The Emergency Medical Science training lab will be named The Andrew and Anne Gordy Steidinger Emergency Medical Science Skills Lab to honor long-time friends of the College, Drew and Anne Steidinger. A modern 225-seat auditorium/classroom, honoring a gift from Susan Fletcher, will be named The Fletcher Family Nursing Education Center. This new auditorium will allow the entire Nursing student body to meet in one location of their own for the first time. The space can be divided into three lecture halls providing a practical alternative purpose when the large auditorium is not in use.


Foundation Hall is set for completion during the fourth quarter of 2022. It will be an addition to Kennedy Hall at the south end of Gauguin parking lot. The architectural firm for Foundation Hall is LS3P and the General Contractor is Bordeaux Construction Company. Both companies are based in Raleigh.

Curriculum Programs Sandhills Community College provides over 60 different curriculum pathways to a degree. It is great news for you if you’re reading this because we probably have something you will find valuable and helpful moving forward. But that, as they say, is just the tip of the iceberg. When you drive down Airport Road and turn into our main campus in Pinehurst, you’ll be viewing the second most beautiful community college campus in the United States as recently recognized by Great Value Colleges. And to top it off, the USA College Directory ranked us as the second safest of 500 colleges nation-wide. Sandhills Community College is home to over 4,000 curriculum students ranging in age from dual-enrolled high schoolers to those who are moving from one career to their next adventure. With so many students, you may wonder if you will receive the attention and support you need. That’s where our 13:1 student-to-instructor ratio comes in handy. Better still, 75% of our course hours are taught by full-time faculty which means you won’t spend an eternity trying to track someone down with phone calls or email – you

can visit their offices and sit down for a face-to-face conversation. What will you study? You may need a pathway that leads to a certificate or diploma in short order or an applied science program that can take only two years to complete. If you want to earn a bachelor’s degree and saving a lot of money and personal attention is important, begin with us — we have eight transfer pathways. Where will the money come from? Our Financial Aid Office is here to assist you with the paperwork needed to apply for aid. Once the federal form is complete, you can apply for our own scholarships. Did you know that Sandhills Community College awards close to $1 million a year in scholarships, Guarantor’ Aid, and The Sandhills Promise? It is definitely worth the short time it takes to apply. We always tell people never to assume they will not qualify for aid. You never know unless you apply. Is there anything fun happening on campus? Now that we have answered the academic and money questions, what else are we missing? How about the “college experience.” If you are

Army Experience Led This Veteran to a Career in Nursing A Google search led Nursing student Andrew Turner to Sandhills Community College, and the rest is history. “I decided to pursue nursing after being exposed to combat casualty care in the Army,” Andrew said. “Nursing appealed to me because it is so broad, and you can do a lot of different things with it.” Andrew grew up in Arkansas and was stationed at Fort Bragg. He met his wife in North Carolina and decided to make Pinehurst their home. Andrew can often be found in Kennedy Hall. “I have spent many afternoons and very early mornings there with friends and classmates preparing for tests, projects, and checkoffs,” he said. His favorite part of training is the clinicals. “They allow us not only to put our skills into practice but to see everything we’ve learned in class in the real world and put it all together.” After graduating in May, Andrew plans to work in the Emergency Room at FirstHealth and begin his Bachelor of Science in Nursing. “I haven’t met a Sandhills instructor yet that wouldn’t go out of their way to see a student reach that ‘Ah-ha!’ moment,” Andrew said.

The students and faculty are also involved in the local community which, in turn, generates community involvement in Sandhills.” Andrew currently works part-time at Dick’s Sporting Goods and enjoys projects around his house with his wife. “Since beginning college, we have remodeled two rooms and finished countless smaller projects,” he said.

In addition to the traditional 16-week semester, SCC will offer classes in eight-week sessions. Students can take a mix of fullsemester classes alongside eight-week classes. These online and hybrid classes can lead to our Associate in Arts degree or three Business Certificates with additional program classes to be added spring semester.
