SHHS Wins Planetree Designation!

This month saw a world changing achievement by the School of Health and Human Services (SHHS). After nearly two years of work and collaboration, the school became the first in the nation to earn the Planetree designation. Heralded around the world for starting and sustaining a unique model of patient centered care, the Planetree organization has been helping hospitals put patients first. Now National University has paved the way for universities to have the same principles by being the first to bring this approach to academia. Read all about the achievement in detail HERE, and read the local news article about the designation HERE.

Accepting the designation are (left to right) Clinical Assistant Professor Linda Macomber, a Planetree staff member, Dean Dr. Gloria McNeal, Planetree Chair Christy Shumacher, and Assistant Professor Peggy Ranke.

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.

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!
