Nursing Department to Induct First Class of Honor Students

The Nursing department is fulfilling its journey to bring scholarship, research and ultimately stature to National University.  It has long been the goal for Nursing at NU to preside over its own chapter of the prestigious Sigma Theta Tau International (STTI) Honor Society nursing.  The journey begins when Nursing develops and implements a student nurses honor society . By following closely the bylaws and guidance of STTI headquarters we must maintain a full honor society for one year before requesting chapter status.

We began this process in February and will be welcoming our first group of inductees in the honor society this Friday, June 29th. The inductees consist of students who have achieved at least a 3.00 GPA as well as demonstrated a commitment to community, academic excellence and nursing scholarship. Membership is open to nursing faculty and alumni.

There will be 45 new inductees from the Rancho Bernardo Campus and 25 from the Los Angeles and Fresno campuses.  This represents a significant step in the life of the department and for the university. On the tails of the approval our first  doctorate program, Sigma Theta Tau will bring a commitment to nursing scholarship, research and excellence recognized world wide.

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!

SHHS Student Research Fellowship

The National University Library launched a pilot project through the Center of Excellence that created an opportunity for the librarians to host student research fellows.

Hi, my name is Sarah and I was hired as the first ever Student Research Fellow.  It has been one of the best experiences I've ever had because I have learned so much and have been given opportunities that have provided me a competitive edge moving forward into my career path.  This experience allowed me to work directly with faculty to do research and submit a manuscript for publishing.  Also, I was able to apply my new research skills in all the classes I took while I was a fellow, resulting in straight A's in all of my courses.  My time, here at the library, is coming to an end as I am getting ready to ship out for Army basic training but I will carry this experience with me forever.

Below is a video about my experience here at the National University Library as a fellow.
