On Dec. 1, St. John's Hospital-Cassville renewed its partnership with the Crowder College Cassville Campus nursing program. In the past, the local hospital donated equipment and supplies to the program, which gives students an opportunity to earn an associates degree in nursing. St. John's Hospital also offers opportunities for nursing students to complete clinical hours at its facilities in Cassville and Aurora. The renewal of the partnership, which included a donation, signifies St. John's continued support of the local educational program.
