Mark your calendars now! The 2013 JCHS Winter Commencement Ceremony! Our 2013 Winter Commencement Speaker will be Ms. Carolyn Webster, B.S.N., M.B.A., R.N., Senior Vice President of Nursing and Chief Nursing Officer, Carilion Clinic. Ms. Webster has been with Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia for 38 years. She has held the positions of staff nurse, staff development, Director of the Emergency Departments at Carilion Medical Center (two hospitals), Vice President of Nursing Operations, and has been Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer for Carilion Clinic since 2001.

Carolyn partnered with a higher learning university to start a Doctor of Nursing Practice program for Southwest Virginia and continually partners with schools and universities to implement nursing research.
