MSN Program Continues to Grow!

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.

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.
