March came in like a lion for the 4th Cohort of the SHHS’s MSN Program. Orientation day for the cohort was held at the Costa Mesa Campus on March 3rd and it was standing room only in the room. The day was led by Lead Faculty member Dr. Barbara Piper. 27 new students joined the program that includes four specializations (Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), Administration, Informatics, and Mental Health). Faculty from all three SHHS departments (Community Health, Health Sciences and Nursing) were there for the orientation, either in person, or by teleconference. Dean McNeal attended in person, along with two of the Department Chairs. The benefits of advanced degrees in the field of Nursing is well documented, and with FNPs gaining more autonomy, the SHHS remains committed to the continued growth of theses graduate programs.
