THE INTER-MOUNTAIN - Among all the programs at Davis & Elkins College, perhaps none are better suited to the topic of heart health than the nursing program.

The college offers a two-year associate's degree in nursing, and Dr. R. Carol Cochran, director of the nursing program, spoke to The Inter-Mountain about what the college can offer its students and how that translates to heart health of future patients.

"Part of every nursing class is education for clients," she said.

Being able to provide education for clients is essential, she said, so they can know how to take care of their own bodies outside a doctor's office.
