With all of Fall quarter’s start of the year activities and holidays solidly behind us, we are now hunkered down for Winter quarter. I suppose it’s natural during this time of year to reflect on past and future goals—to take stock of where you are and look ahead where you plan to go next.
For me, each day, I become more and more aware of the impact of nursing education on our students. It’s gratifying to watch their transformation from ‘undergrad student’ to health professional as a Registered Nurse or Ultrasonographer, or a ‘graduate student’ to doctorally prepared advanced practice nurse and systems leader. But it’s equally humbling to witness the sacrifices many students make to achieve the academic success they desire.
Congratulations to Vincent Otundo, MSN ‘19, on receiving the Lois Price Spratlen Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship program supports graduate students pursuing a career in advanced practice psychiatric nursing. Vincent is in his final year of the Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner (PMHNP) program at Seattle University.
We are pleased to announce that Belen Mesele, DNP ’22, is the recipient of this year’s Dr. Eileen Ridgway Endowed Nursing Scholarship. Belen is in her first year of the advanced practice nursing immersion program and is pursuing a Doctorate in Nursing Practice in Advanced Community Public Health.
Learn more about the DNP program at an upcoming online information session.
