PREPARING NURSES
FOR THE FUTURE
" Two things we can achieve by having
the nursing program here instead
of on the Front Range are improving
diversity in nursing and establishing
culturally relevant caregivers
for underserved populations, " says
Zink. " This partnership between FLC
and CU has the creative potential to
change the landscape and show how
healthcare can and should look. This
program will help prepare the nurses
of the future. "
In addition to the faculty and staff of
FLC and CU, Karen points out that this
program would not be possible without
the tireless efforts and expertise
of Elias Provencio-Vasquez, professor
and dean of the University of Colorado
College of Nursing at Anschutz
Medical Campus. Provencio-Vasquez
is the first Latino male to earn a
doctorate in nursing and head a
nursing school in the United States.
He refers to Zink as la chispa, that is,
" the spark " in English, for her loving,
outspoken, action-oriented desire to
see change today.

Like the Zinks and Shorts, Provencio-Vasquez is part of a growing
legacy of experts and donors that are investing in this revolutionary
venture for the region and the future of nursing in the
Southwest US and beyond. Zink wants to remind the community
that this game-changing opportunity is open to anyone to join.
Karen's brother
Steve Short, and
his family, have
helped make
the partnership
possible.
USING THE GIFTS GIVEN
" It's been the right people in the right places at the right time, "
she says. " The stars have truly aligned. It's been a lot of hard
work, and we're using the gifts we've been given. "
In a celebration on Zoom, leadership from CU and FLC applauded
the Zinks and Shorts.
" There is a great need for nursing workforce development and FLC
is proud to help lead the way, " says Melissa Mount, vice president
of Advancement and CEO of the FLC Foundation. " We're thrilled
to have the philanthropic support of the Zinks and Shorts to
accelerate this impactful program. "
