A change of leadership is in the works for Carilion's nursing program.
The vice president in charge of nursing Beth Cullum, has resigned.
Cullum was involved in re-organizing the nursing program, a move that was unpopular among some nurses, and led to an effort to unionize.
A Carilion spokesperson says Cullum's resignation was voluntary, and she will continue working through June.
Cullum was not available for comment today.

Norfolk Southern is the only class one freight railroad in the country where crewmembers on board must relieve themselves in a plastic bag draped over a commode, instead of a toilet.
It's called the "dry hopper" system, and it's apparently not too popular with N-S workers because of the smell of the accumulated bags.
In the past the railroad denied its employees toss the bags off the trains, but a number of people will tell you otherwise.

Reporting in the New England Journal of Medicine, researchers found that Alzheimer's patients who took high doses of Vitamin-E --two-thousand units per day-- certain milestones such as loss of daily activities and going into a nursing home were delayed by as much as seven months.
Though it may only slow the progression of the disease, experts say it's encouraging news.

In 1991 Franklin County High School students were ahead of the game.
36 percent of them passed the state fitness test... which was better than most schools across the Commonwealth.
But there's been a steady decline recently.
In 1995 only 16 percent of these students were successful... 10 percentage points below the state average.
