SHHS’s BSN (V2BSN) Project Awarded Million Dollar Grant

SHHS Accelerated Track for Vets to BSN (V2BSN) Project Grant Receives $1.05 Million Grant from the U.S. Department of Health &Human Services
This fall will be a busy time for the Department of Nursing as it gears up to offer an accelerated track for medics and corpsman to take their military education and experience to the next level by earning a Baccalaureate of Science in Nursing (BSN) at National University.  This accelerated program will grant advanced standing by awarding college level credit using nationally recognized transcript evaluation methods, credit-by-examination options, and competency based evaluation of prior learning and experience.

The project will be led by the Director (PD), SHHS Dean Gloria McNeal, herself a former Navy Corps Officer.  SSHS faculty and staff will work on this project that will involve two local naval hospitals in the San Diego area.  The project aims to take in 20 students in each cohort admitted twice per year.

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.”

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