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!

NUSNA is a wonderful organization that is active on campus and in the community.  There are several benefits to joining the organization.  If you are interested in becoming a part of this nationally recognized organization, definitely check out their website!  If you are not a nursing student but are interested in getting involved with their community outreach and service projects, check out their Community Service page here.

Congratulations on all your success!

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.
