Georgia Southwestern and PCOM Georgia partner to graduate pharmacists sooner

Aspiring pharmacists who are students at Georgia Southwestern will be eligible to earn a Doctor of Pharmacy degree a year early based on an articulation agreement signed by GSW and PCOM Georgia.

"We are excited about this new partnership and the opportunity it provides for our students who are interested in obtaining a PharmD Degree," stated Suzanne Smith, Ph.D., GSW provost and vice president for Academic Affairs. "This PharmD Early Assurance Program gives them early entry into PCOM, allowing them to receive their undergraduate degree while already working towards their PharmD degree, which gives them a substantial advantage."

According to Dr. Shawn Spencer, dean of the PCOM School of Pharmacy in Suwanee, Georgia, the agreement will allow eligible students in their first year at GSW to have a seat reserved three years in advance at the School of Pharmacy so they may enter after completing their junior year of college. A win-win arrangement for all, this newly signed agreement allows students to begin their careers early while saving tuition dollars.

Faculty and Staff Awards recognize dedicated employees

On October 9, 2020, GSW recognized the contributions of our dedicated faculty and staff with a virtual Faculty and Staff Awards ceremony. This event, typically held at the end of Spring semester each year, had been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As President Neal Weaved noted during the ceremony, this year's awardees were nominated by their peers earlier this year, amid some of the most difficult and challenging times in higher education's history.

Those receiving awards were presented in-person to accept their plaques from Dr. Weaver. Additionally via the livestream, faculty were recognized for promotion and tenure, faculty and staff were recognized for years of service to GSW, faculty retirees that were granted emeritus status were recognized, and a moment of silence was held for the faculty and staff members that have passed away in the last year.

Those recognized as award winners were:

  • Excellence in Customer Service and Personal Interactions Award - Dr. Gaye Hayes
  • Faculty Excellence in Service Award - Dr. Ramona Mulleins-Foreman
  • Faculty Excellence in Scholarship Award - Dr. Alexander Yemelyanov
  • Faculty Excellence and Commitment to Teaching Award - Dr. Bonnie Gary
  • Faculty Excellence in Advising Award - Jennifer Dickens
  • Professor of the Year - Dr. Alanna Bowie
  • Oris Bryant Staff Member of the Year - Ethan Johnson
  • Faculty Member of the Year - Dr. Suzanne Smith

Dr. Sandra Daniel, dean of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences, was featured in the October 2020 issue of Georgia Trend. The magazine’s feature story, “Nursing During Adversity,” covered how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected both student and experienced nurses.

The article stated that most of the state’s public universities and technical colleges have two- or four-year nursing programs and work closely with health system partners to increase the number of nurses educated and trained. For example, Georgia Southwestern State University (GSW) in Americus and Albany’s Phoebe Putney Health System have worked over the years to essentially double nursing student enrollment. The college’s undergraduate program is now close to its 150-student capacity, with about an equal number of students in its graduate programs.

“’Our aim is to recruit from Southwest Georgia and hopefully retain them in the long run,’ says Sandra Daniel, dean and professor at GSW College of Nursing and Health Sciences. ‘When we went through the initial COVID impact in March, I was concerned we would either have a decrease in interest because of fear and concerns about safety or it will be appealing to future nurses. Just anecdotally, prospective students and those in our program are not seeing it as a negative. It has not negatively impacted us.’”
