National University Virtual Clinic Opens its First Location in Watts

U.S. Representative Maxine Waters and Dean McNeal (center) and other local leaders cut the ribbon.
“This is such an exciting day for us,” said Dr. Gloria McNeal, Dean of National University’s (NU) School of Health and Human Services (SHHS) last month at the grand opening of the National University Nurse-Managed Clinic.  The clinic will be community based in the Los Angeles area and is the result of a $1.5 million grant from the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to the SHHS.  The effort is based out of NU’s LA campus and is connected through telehealth technologies to five community sites in the area.  The public launch event was held at one of the sites, the Tree of Life Missionary Baptist Church in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles.
NU faculty, staff, and administrators were on hand to tour the site along with local, state, and federal leaders.  The grant allows funding for nurse practitioners from NU and other healthcare organizations to meet and treat patients in the community where they live.  You can view a video of the launch event highlighted by opening remarks by NU Provost Gangaram Singh here.

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.
