National University Student Nurses Association at the Convention

California Nursing Students' Association Convention was an amazing experience! 600 nursing students from California attended this event.

From the local NU Chapter (NUSNA) Carrie Stone, Jennifer Bryan, Nicole Moreau and Michele Olive attended and represented the school as delegates.  They participated in discussions and voted on resolutions that affect nursing practice.  The resolutions that were passed will be sent to the American Nurses Association, hospitals in California, and other professional nursing organizations for consideration of implementation.

NUSNA won the Outstanding Newsletter Award thanks to secretary, Maryanne Mesina.  Maryanne was unable to attend the convention due to illness, but was able to attend the award ceremony on Sunday where she also received a $1,000 scholarship.  
The four delegates spent a lot of time meeting other nursing students and were very pleased to connect with NU Fresno's student president Ryan Rickley. 

Please join me in congratulating the NUSNA on their accomplishments!

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.
