Summertime might mean vacations at the mountains, or the beach for some, but for the faculty of the School of Nursing, summer is anything but being laid back. In addition to their teaching responsibilities, they are engaged around the world expanding their knowledge and sharing their expertise.
We asked the classic question, “So what will you be doing during the summer break?” The following is just a snapshot of some of the answers we received about the activities keeping DUSON Faculty busy this summer:
At the 2014 national Education Summit sponsored by the National League for Nursing (NLN) and held in Phoenix, several members of the DUSON community were honored. Danielle (Dani) Rourke, an ABSN student who will complete the program in May 2015, was recognized as the winner of the Student Excellence Paper competition.
DUSON and its faculty, staff, students and alumni were very visible throughout the 43rd Sigma Theta Tau International 43rd Biennial Convention in Las Vegas held earlier this month. Here are the highlights:
