Students volunteered several hours of their time this past Saturday serving dinner at the Ronald McDonald House. This is one of many monthly volunteer events hosted by SLSNA.
“The goal of SLSNA (Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences Student Nursing Association) is to provide opportunities for the student to develop professionally as they transition into nurses,” shared Zachary Parish, SLSNA president. It’s a great way to network with other current and future nurses through the various activities and volunteer events SLSNA hosts. Zach explained that networking is huge for nurses in the healthcare industry, and SLSNA is there to help these connections develop.
Seniors spent the last three days at the ATI Live Review. ATI is hired to help prepare students for their NCLEX-RN Board Exam. It was an information-packed three days giving students the test-taking skills and knowledge they need to be successful on their exams. Good luck to all our Seniors.
A group of students volunteered in the cold temperatures at the Longview Half Marathon on Saturday morning, November 15. A portion of the proceeds will help Saint Luke’s Home Care & Hospice provide compassionate and high-quality services to patients and families in our community. Congratulations to the runners and volunteers.
The College was busy Wednesday with CAPS (Center for Advance Professional Studies) high school students getting a glimpse into the healthcare field. Students ran drills in the Simulation Lab and performed emergent cricothyrotomy procedures using pig tracheas and practiced basic suturing techniques in the skills labs. Thanks to Assistant Professor Shane Hagen, MSN, RN, for leading the program.
On Sunday, Oct. 5, 2014, four graduate nursing students and 34 senior nursing students were inducted into the Saint Luke’s College Nursing Honor Society — a chapter of Sigma Theta Tau International Nursing Honor Society.
