Sally Blackie-Sengel knows what students in the Blinn College Vocational Nursing Program are going through.  She’s been there herself.

The college announced that Blackie-Sengel, who is a former nursing school student at Blinn, has fulfilled a $500,000 pledge in support of the health sciences portion of the Brenham Campus Science, Technology, Engineering, and Innovation Building that opened in the Fall 2021 semester.

The gift was made through the BetsWest Foundation.

The nursing classroom and simulation and skills laboratories on the second floor of the STEI building were named in honor of the BetsWest Foundation and Blackie-Sengel. It includes a nursing skills lab where students get hands-on experience in 10 simulation bays, along with a nurses’ station and conference room.

Dean of Health Sciences Michelle Trubenstein said the donation helps Blinn provide cutting-edge training for vocational nursing students.

The donation helped to provide a state-of-the-art simulation facility in which Blinn faculty members are able to provide the education and training which nursing students need to develop, and master the skills required to safely care for their patients.

Blinn Vocational Nursing Program is offered online and in the STEI Building. It includes classroom, laboratory, and clinical training.
