Fresno Nursing Students Attend a Health Fair





On Sunday, November 6th, 2011 NU Fresno Nursing department took part in a free public Health Fair sponsored by Telemundo Broadcasting, at Manchester Mall in Fresno, CA. The health fair offered a variety of medical checkups to Spanish speaking persons who do not have medical insurance. A team of Fresno Campus faculty, students and staff participated in this health fair, offering blood pressure tests, dietary and infant health information. I am proud to report that our nursing students completed over 320 blood pressure checks and passed out information for better living. I was proud to organize this event to promote the universities values, give back to the community and put forth a positive image of National University.

Fresno Team Consisted of:
Roslyn Villalobos, Student Support Specialist, Nursing Department
Amy Mason, Nursing Adjunct Faculty

Maria De La Mora, Student Accounts Officer (Spanish Translator)

A special THANK YOU to Leticia & Maria who translated for us. It was no easy task and we really appreciate you girls going above and beyond!

NUSNA Goes Big in Texas

There is a saying that, “Everything is bigger in Texas” and that is certainly true about the reputation of the National University Student Nurses Association.  Five delegates, recently, flew to Dallas, Texas to represent NUSNA and National University at the 2017 National Student Nurses Association Convention.  Stephanie Fraenzl, NUSNA President, was approached by several convention attendees to ask about the operations and successes of the National University association.  The President of the California Student Nurses Association was even overheard directing students to our delegates saying, “Ask them how they do that, they have a great association.”

NUSNA was nationally recognized twice at the convention.  First, they were honored with an award for their newsletter, The Pulse.  Check out the newsletter here.  Secondly, they were recognized for their monthly community event, Shower of Blessings.  Learn more about participating in this community event here!
