Another Federal Grant is Awarded to the School to Fund a Nurse Managed Clinic!

The SHHS Gets to Work on a Mobile Health Clinic as it Wins its Second Million Dollar U.S. Department of Health &Human Services Grant!

Winter may have just started, but the SHHS has had a busy fall with the announcement of another large grant from the Federal Government.  Details were released to the community in a National University Press Release.  The initiative is led by the Dean, Dr. Gloria McNeal, with a team from all over the school.  The clinic will be based out of Los Angeles and will serve some of the most undeserved patients in the country. The clinic will have virtual components and will move to where it is needed in the community.  Patient care is changing across the U.S., and our school will be part of that change.  Nursing is at the center of the clinic, but the approach will be inter-professional, utilizing all three SHHS departments and nearly a dozen different programs.  The first class of SHHS students are meeting now to help design and implement the clinic, so stay tuned for more updates!

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!

How Can a Horse Really Matter?

Dr. Paul Tontz, an academic counselor for the Vets2BSN program, had the opportunity to take part in the Heart of Horsemanship (HOH) Workshop this past weekend.  Below is his experience.

"This past warm, sunny weekend for Armed Forces Day, I had the opportunity to participate in a one day Heart of Horsemanship (HOH) workshop presented by Drs. Ellen Kaye Gehrke and Michael Myers and Mr. Tom Gunter at the Rolling Horse Ranch in Ramona.  The Heart of Horsemanship is an 8-week program offered to veterans as a complementary approach to treating symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress.  It is a form of equine therapy where one has a chance to improve confidence, self-esteem, and reduce anxiety while learning to ride and connect to horses in the western tradition.  Past participants have reported a positive well-being, reduction of stress and anxiety, and emotional regulation as a result of participation.  Admittedly as a therapist in training learning more traditional means for th…
