With 3 nursing programs (traditional entry level BS in nursing, RN-BS in nursing, and graduate degrees in nursing education and nursing leadership and administration) the SON is a busy place! Some of the events we are anticipating in the near future include:
Nursing Camp – From July 29 – August 2nd 24 high school students will come to campus to explore nursing roles, work with faculty and current students, and enjoy our extensive clinical laboratory facilities
Transcultural Nursing course taking place on location in Costa Rica this May. Fourteen students and 2 faculty will work with Christ for the City holding a week-long nursing clinic where in past years they have seen up to 900 patients.
Inter-professional Simulation Day where nursing, social work and criminal justice students participate in an emergency department simulation experience with patient actors who bring a myriad of physical and psychosocial concerns.
As with the end of every semester we look forward to hearing the presentation of our honor’s students’ project and our graduate student theses. This year, for example, 2 graduate student projects will present on “Implementation of Neurological Best Practice Program in the Emergency Department” and “Reduction of Incidence and Duration of Ileus and Associated Symptoms in Postoperative Patients”.
